Applications are invited for one or more post-doctoral research positions at the University of California Santa Barbara. The successful applicant(s) will work with Prof. Tommaso Treu on one or more of the following topics: i) dark energy; ii) dark matter in galaxies and clusters of galaxies; iii) co-evolution of spheroids and black holes. Available resources include Hubble Space Telescope, Spitzer, Chandra, Keck, and VLT data. Previous experience in analysis of HST data, ground based imaging and spectroscopy, machine learning algorithms, and/or gravitational lens modeling is considered a plus but is not necessary. A fraction of the successful candidates' time is expected to be devoted to independent research. The appointments are for two years; renewal for a third year is subject to performance and availability of funds. The UCSB physics department and the Kavli Institute for Theoretical Physics host a strong research program in astrophysics and provide a stimulating environment. The appointments are expected to start on or before Sep 1 2013 and require the completion of a PhD. Applicants should submit: i) statement of research interests and/or research proposal; ii) publication list; iii) CV. They should arrange for three letters of reference to be sent.
