Two cosmology postdoctoral positions at Korea Astronomy and

Post by Arman Shafieloo » June 06 2015

The cosmology group at the Korea Astronomy and Space Science Institute (KASI), Daejeon, Korea invite applications for up to 2 postdoctoral fellow positions in theoretical /observational cosmology to work with Dr. Arman Shafieloo. One position is available as early as November 2015 and another position will be available from April 2016.

Cosmology group at KASI consist of Drs. Yong-Seon Song (PI), Ki Young Choi, Arman Shafieloo, Eric Linder (as a visiting professor) and currently 5 postdoctoral researchers and a PhD student. 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. Our group at KASI is a member of major wide-deep field surveys such as DESI (and soon LSST) and have close connections to other KASI survey involvements including KMTnet, JCMT, ALMA and GMT.

For one of the positions we are particularly interested to a young and enthusiastic researcher to work on large scale structure data (real data and future data simulations) to test and study different early universe scenarios.

For another position, we are interested to an applicant to work on advanced statistical methods of data analysis and their applications in studying various cosmological observations. This could involve working on innovative algorithms to deal with large flow of data from future cosmological surveys (Cosmology Big Data) such as LSST.

The positions are initially for two years, with the possibility of a third year depending on the research performance, mutual agreement or funding situation. The starting date of the appointments are negotiable. Interested applicants should submit their CV, a list of publications, and a statement of research interests to [[Log in to view email]] and CC to Dr. Arman Shafieloo [[Log in to view email]]. They should mention in the subject of their email that they are applying for cosmology postdoctoral positions. Applicants should also arrange for three letters of recommendation to be sent to the same addresses. First position can be filled by November 2015 in case of availability of a suitable applicant and deadline is 30th of June 2015 . Those who have strong backgrounds in astrophysics, observational cosmology, theoretical cosmology and/or have expertise in advanced statistical methods of data analysis are encouraged to apply.
