The CMB Cosmology group in the Department of Physics at Case Western Reserve University is seeking postdoctoral scholars to work on millimeter-wave instrumentation and/or data analysis for the South Pole Telescope (SPT) and Spider projects. We are currently taking data with the first polarization sensitive receiver on the SPT, and are developing its next generation, multi-chroic, CMB polarimeter. Spider is a long-duration balloon-borne CMB polarimeter, with a first flight planned around Antarctica in 2014/2015. Candidates should hold a Ph.D. in physics, astronomy, or a closely related field. Experience with millimeter-wave, low-noise, or cryogenic instrumentation is desirable.
Applicants should send a curriculum vitae, brief summary of research experience, bibliography, and arrange to have three letters of reference sent to: Prof. John Ruhl, Department of Physics, Case Western Reserve University, 10900 Euclid Ave, Cleveland, OH, 44106-7079. Inquiries can be directed to firstname.lastname@example.org.
