The Arizona Cosmology Lab (www.azcosmolab.org), a research unit at UArizona's Department of Astronomy/Steward Observatory, invites applications for a 3-year Postdoctoral Researcher to work on “Kinematic Lensing” (KL) with Drs. Elisabeth Krause, Tim Eifler, Xiaohui Fan, Eiichi Egami. Kinematic Lensing combines imaging and spectroscopic information to improve shear inference of disc galaxies.
Applicants should relate their past research experience and future research plans to the KL concept. Experience in measuring galaxy kinematics and spectroscopic data reduction are beneficial. More information on KL and potential research directions can be found here www.azcosmolab.org/science.html.
UA/SO offers a world-class research environment in astrophysics with strong interdisciplinary programs across the Departments of Astronomy, Physics, Planetary Sciences, and direct access to large telescope facilities, e.g., MMT, LBT, Magellan. We strive to create an inclusive, diverse environment and strongly encourage candidates from underrepresented groups to apply.
Applicants should upload a single pdf containing cover letter (1 page), CV (2 pages), Research Statement (5 page max, incl figures and references) and arrange for 3 letters to be uploaded at the URL below.
