This position is situated within the framework of the STARLAB BRAINbe network financed by BELSPO. The network is a collaboration between the Royal Observatory of Belgium (ROB - M. Groenewegen), the astronomy department of the ULB (Prof. A. Jorissen, the principal investigatorof STARLAB),andthe astronomy department of the KULeuven (Prof. C. Waelkens).

One of the three workpackages within STARLAB aims at a better understanding of the mass-loss process in late-type stars, analysing data from the Herschel satellite, and the ALMA interferometer. This workpackage is a collaboration between ROB and KULeuven (Prof. L. Decin).

This position is open within the Uccle Seismology-Gravimetry Service (http://seismology.be) at the Royal Observatory of Belgium. The activities of the service include instrument development, ground motion acquisition using seismic and accelerometric stations, real time monitoring, reporting and alerting of the seismic activity in and around Belgium. They also include the monitoring of the absolute gravity changes. In parallel to the monitoring duties, the SG scientists study many aspects of intraplate seismicity, ground motion and time- dependent physical properties of the upper crust. These activities are funded by the internal budget of the Royal Observatory of Belgium. This offer is made possible by the federal BRAIN.be LARGE-MEM project.
