Description: The Center for Cosmology and Particle Physics (CCPP) at NYU invites applications for a postdoctoral associate position in cosmology, starting in September 2019. The postdoctoral fellow will work with Prof. Anthony Pullen on projects at the nexus of theory and data analysis with the goal of using large-scale structure tracers (CMB, galaxy surveys, intensity mapping, etc.) to probe astrophysical and cosmological phenomena, including inflation, dark energy, gravity, reionization, and star formation.
The fellow is expected to spend at least 50% of their research time on projects with Prof. Pullen. CCPP has a broad array of faculty members with various interests. The Center also has close ties with NYU’s Courant Institute and Center for Data Science, as well as frequent interactions with researchers and visitors at the Simons Center for Computational Astrophysics.
The position is for 2 years with a 3rd year available contingent on funding and continued satisfactory performance. The position includes funding for a computer and travel. Postdocs benefit from the lively atmosphere of the Center and a vigorous visitors program. As a member of CCPP, the fellow will have full data access to the Sloan Digital Sky Survey IV.
Qualifications: The applicant must have a Ph.D. degree in Physics or equivalent before the start of employment with less than 5 years of postdoctoral experience at the start of employment.
To apply, please submit a C.V including a list of publications, a research statement, and requests for 3 recommendation letters to Interfolio at the link https://apply.interfolio.com/55714. The application must be submitted via the online application form no later than December 1, 2018.
