The cosmology group at the Korea Astronomy and Space Science Institute (hereafter CosKASI, http://cosmology.kasi.re.kr/index.html), Daejeon, Korea invites applications for up to 5 postdoctoral fellow positions in observational/theoretical cosmology. Those positions are available from September 2018 but it is also possible to start earlier.

CosKASI includes Profs. Yong-Seon Song (PI), Arman Shafieloo, David Parkinson, Eric Linder (as a visiting professor), and currently 6 postdoctoral researchers, and several PhD students. The group is consistently growing and is active in various fields of cosmology including observational cosmology, primordial inflation, cosmological perturbation, large scale structure and dark energy. CosKASI participates in the major wide-deep field surveys such as SDSS4, DESI and LSST and have close connections to other KASI survey involvements including KMTnet, JCMT, ALMA and GMT. We search for postdocs in the following areas;


1) For the position to work with Prof. Shafieloo, we are interested to an applicant to work on advanced statistical methods of data analysis and their applications in studying various cosmological observations. This would involve working on innovative algorithms to deal with large flow of data from future cosmological surveys (Cosmology Big Data) such as LSST. Enquiries may be addressed to: [Log in to view email]

2) The first position with Prof. Parkinson will involve developing the theoretical understanding and tools to exploit data from large-area optical spectroscopic surveys, in particular for the testing theories of dark energy and modified gravity. The position will involve planning for the Dark Energy Spectroscopic Instrument (DESI) survey. Knowledge and experience of some aspect of cosmological theory is essential. Some experience with data analysis is welcomed by not essential. For the second position with Prof. Parkinson, the applicant will be working on cosmological data from the ASKAP-EMU (Australian Square Kilometre Array Pathfinder Evolutionary Map of the Universe) large-area radio continuum survey, and using this data to generate data products and test and constrain cosmological models. Knowledge and experience of some aspect of cosmological theory and/or analysis is essential. Experience with radio astronomy observations and data is welcome, but not required.

3) The cosmology group (working with Yong-Seon Song) invites applications for 1 postdoctoral fellow position in observational/theoretical cosmology. The selected has an opportunity to participate in both eBOSS and DESI. This position is available from anytime in 2018. Enquiries may be addressed to: [Log in to view email]


In order to receive full consideration, applicants should submit a single file including their CV, a list of publications, and a statement of research interests to https://www.kasi.re.kr/eng/post/eng_jobopening no later than December 16 of 2017. Applicants should also arrange for three letters of recommendation to be sent to Ms. A-in Cho [Log in to view email]. Those who have strong backgrounds in astrophysics, observational cosmology and theoretical cosmology are encouraged to apply.
