At least two 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 group research activities focus 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 multi-wavelength emission observations. The latter include recently acquired or allocated, deep JWST, ALMA, Chandra and MUSE datasets in addition to optical and IR ground-based imaging.
We invite applications by candidates who are interested in both observational and/or numerical studies of CGM/IGM emission and associated galaxies at high redshift using this rich multi-wavelength dataset and/or high-resolution cosmological simulations. In-house HPC facilities as well as national HPC resources will be available to the successful candidate(s) working on numerical projects.
Interested candidates are invited to send their CV (including publication list) and a brief research statement (including previous experiences) by December 15, 2022 to the following email address: [email protected] . 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 position(s) will be available from Spring 2023 with the possibility of later starting dates. The initial contract duration will be two years, with possible yearly extensions, with a tax-free salary. The successful candidates should hold a PhD in astronomy, physics or related field by the starting date. The position(s) include generous travel and research equipment allowances. We particularly welcome candidates from traditionally underrepresented groups in academia.
