Job Announcement Text: 

An exciting opportunity has arisen in the Department of Space and Climate Physics (Mullard Space Science Laboratory) to join a team working on Euclid. Euclid is the European Space Agency’s next space telescope, due for launch in 2021, whose primary science objective is to determine the nature of dark energy using weak lensing and galaxy clustering measurements. This position is an opportunity to develop a key part of the Euclid weak lensing cosmology analysis. UCL (MSSL) leads the development of the Euclid visible instrument and co-lead the Euclid weak lensing science working group. UCL is also a member of LSST, and KiDS imaging surveys. The main goals of this project are to develop a Science Performance and Verification Pipeline that will assess the impact of systematic effects on the inference of cosmological parameters from cosmic shear measurements. This project will involve collaboration with the Euclid Consortium, and other researchers at UCL.  The main purpose of the job is to develop a Science Performance Verification pipeline for Euclid, to collaborate within the Euclid Consortium, and to publish academic journal articles on weak lensing for Euclid. Informal enquiries should be made to Prof Tom Kitching (t.kitching@ucl.ac.uk).  Applications to be completed on line using the URL below in Apply for job.
