A new lectureship post in Cosmology/Astrophysics has been created within the Astrophysics Group at Mullard Space Science Laboratory, UCL, underpinned by our strong involvement in the upcoming Euclid mission.
We are looking for candidates with internationally leading research records. There is no restriction on area of application, although we are particularly interested in candidates in the areas of cosmological model testing, large-scale structure and gravitational lensing providing synergy with our involvement in the Euclid satellite missions. The successful applicant will be expected to pursue a vigorous research programme in cosmology/astrophysics and to build MSSL/UCL capability and visibility in this field. The candidate will also fulfill a teaching responsibility at undergraduate and postgraduate level.
MSSL is a world-leading research organisation and is the UK's largest university-based space research group delivering a broad, cutting-edge science programme, underpinned by a strong capability in space science instrumentation, space-domain engineering, systems engineering and project management. Our scientific research ranges from cosmology and the study of extra-galactic objects, to studies of the Sun, the planets and their moons, and the Earth. We also research and develop the next generation of space instrumentation.
The salary will be in the Lecturer grade 8 range: £37,012 to £44,166. The start date will be 1 April 2013 or as soon as possible after that.
