The Departments of Physics and Astronomy and Astrophysics at The Pennsylvania State University are seeking one or more postdoctoral scholars in primordial cosmology and the cosmological implications of observations from large galaxy surveys such as HETDEX (Hobby-Eberly Telescope Dark Energy eXperiment), and eBOSS of SDSS IV. Currently gathering commissioning data, HETDEX expects to observe about a million Lyman-alpha emitters over a 9 cubic-Gpc volume at redshift 1.9 < z < 3.5 during three years of operation time. As a part of SDSS-IV starting from June 2014, eBOSS plans to observe about a half million high-redshift galaxies 0.6 < z < 1 and QSOs. With such an unprecedentedly large number of objects and volume coverage, HETDEX and eBOSS will open a new window to the high redshift universe. Successful candidates will work with Prof. Donghui Jeong, Prof. Sarah Shandera and collaborators in the Center for Theoretical and Observational Cosmology of the Institute for Gravitation and the Cosmos.
