Job Advertisement

This may not be a conventional use for a blog, but I thought I’d give it a go.

After receiving the news a while ago that I had a new research grant, I subsequently got official approval to advertise for a new postdoc and the advert has now been submitted to various places. I thought I might as well put the advertisement on here as well as the usual outlets. It will be on the AAS Jobs Register next month.

Research Associate
Cardiff School of Physics and Astronomy

Applications are invited for a position as Research Associate in Theoretical Cosmology in the School of Physics & Astronomy at Cardiff University. You will undertake research into departures from the standard “concordance” cosmological model and methods for extracting relevant evidence from observations of the cosmic microwave background and large-scale structure in the galaxy distribution. This position is funded by a grant from the Science & Technology Facilities Council.

You will have (or expect to obtain very soon) a PhD or have equivalent research experience in astronomy, astrophysics, cosmology or a closely related subject. A strong theoretical background and experience in the analysis of cosmological data are essential.

The School of Physics & Astronomy at Cardiff University hosts a broad and stimulating research program in astrophysics, cosmology and gravitational physics, encompassing theory, observation and instrumentation. In particular, it is involved in a large number of important cosmological experiments, including Planck, Quad and Clover.
