Job Announcement Text: 

At least three Postdoctoral Positions will be available in the COSMIB (Cosmic Structures at Milano Bicocca) research group as a part of the ERC-funded "CosmicWeb" Project (PI: S. Cantalupo). The newly founded COSMIB group ( www.cosmib.org ) focuses on the exploration of Cosmic Structures at high redshift on different scales - from galaxies to the CircumGalactic and Intergalactic Media -  using both numerical models and observations in emission and absorption. Current group members include researchers within the newly founded groups of Prof. S. Cantalupo and Prof. M. Fumagalli (both supported by ERC Grants) at the University of Milano-Bicocca and a large network of international collaborators. The group has access to high-performance-computing, ESO observational facilities and other observational facilities through international collaborations.

We are particularly interested in candidates with the following interests and expertise: i) cosmological numerical simulations on both small and large scales, ii) Integral-Field spectroscopic observations at high-redshift, iii) multi-wavelength observations (radio, sub-mm, X-ray) of high-redshift galaxies and AGN. Interested candidates are invited to send their CV (including publication list) and a brief research statement (including previous experiences and future interests) by Jauary 15, 2021 to the following email address: cosmicweb@unimib.it . Three letters of reference should also be sent, directly by the referees, to the same email address by the same date. Candidates will be considered until the positions are filled.

The positions will be available from April 2021 with the possibility of later starting dates. The initial contract duration will be two years with possible yearly extensions. The successful candidates should hold a PhD in astronomy, physics or related field by the starting date. The positions include generous travel and research equipment allowances.
