POSTDOCTORAL POSITIONS IN COSMOLOGY

at ICC Barcelona

 

The Physical Cosmology group at ICC-UB is expected to make one or more  postdoctoral positions to work in Cosmology and  in the areas of interest to the group. We are looking for researchers with a strong background in cosmology and in the analysis of large-scale structure surveys, but exceptional candidates in other areas of cosmology will also be considered. 


The position will be guaranteed for two years, and could be extended depending on performance and availability of funding. The bulk of the funding comes from an IDEAS European Research Council Award to Licia Verde.

Applicants are asked to submit their curriculum vitae, publication list, a brief summary of their past research and a statement of research interests, and arrange for at least three letters of recommendation to be sent. Applications should be sent by e-mail to:

Licia Verde, liciaverde[at]icc.ub.edu.

The appointment may start as early as March and preferably no later than September 2013. Applications received before December 1, 2012 will receive full consideration.


Members of the group are involved in the following surveys/collaborations:



SDSS III, and in particular the BOSS survey

EUCLID

LSST (Large Synoptic Survey Telescope)

BPOL science working group
