Job Announcement Text: 

Galaxy clustering, measuring the spatial distribution of galaxies across cosmic time, is one of the premier tools of precision cosmology.  Precisely determining how galaxies are spatially clustered and how that clustering evolves over cosmic time enables the direct measurement of the cosmic expansion history through baryon acoustic oscillations (BAO) and the growth history of cosmic large scale structure through redshift-space distortions (RSD).  Measuring both BAO and RSD from the three-dimensional distribution of galaxies probes fundamental cosmological parameters, and is a key goal of multiple on-going and near-term projects, including the ESA/NASA Euclid mission and NASA's Roman Space Telescope.  We seek to exploit this technique for the missions and surveys mentioned above.

Advisors Dr. Daniel Stern (JPL) and Dr. Yun Wang (Euclid NASA Science Center, IPAC - Deputy Lead of the Euclid Galaxy Clustering Science Working Group) are closely involved in the Euclid mission, planned for launch in 2022.  We seek to exploit galaxy clustering as a cosmological tool, leading focused preparatory work prior to the launch of Euclid and analyzing space-based data thereafter.
