Argonne National Laboratory seeks a postdoctoral research associate to work within the Cosmological Physics and Advanced Computing Group (CPAC) within the High Energy Physics Division. Cosmological research within CPAC covers theory, modeling, and observations targeted at dark energy, dark matter, primordial fluctuations, inflation, and neutrinos. Theory, modeling, and analysis efforts emphasize multi-wavelength survey science, cluster cosmology, and large-scale cosmological simulations. The observational effort focuses on participation in optical sky surveys (DES, DESI, LSST), CMB observations (SPT), and cross-correlations between the two.
The CPAC Group has strong collaborations with applied mathematicians, computer scientists, and statisticians; access to world-leading supercomputing resources will be available. Interactions with the Experimental Cosmology Group at Argonne and research groups at Fermilab, the University of Chicago, and Northwestern University are highly encouraged.
The postdoctoral candidate is expected to have a strong background in areas of interest to the CPAC group, which usually requires an extensive background in physics/astrophysics. Candidates with backgrounds in high performance computing and data-intensive computing, as well as advanced statistical methods, and with interests in cosmological applications, are also encouraged to apply.
We will continue accepting applications until the position is filled. Please attach an updated CV including relevant research experience and list of publications.
