We invite applications for a postdoctoral research position in the Sejong Cosmology Lab led by Prof. Graziano Rossi at Sejong University in Seoul, Korea. We are particularly interested in an enthusiastic and highly motivated candidate with excellent skills in statistical analysis and manipulation of large datasets, preferably familiar with cosmological constraints from the large-scale structure and/or large-scale structure theory. The position is funded by a Korea National Research Foundation grant focused on the exploration of the Dark Sector with cosmological probes. The initial appointment is for 2 years, with a possible 1-year extension. Candidates should hold a Ph.D. by the starting date. Some funding for travel and computing equipment will be provided, as well as additional benefits such as national health insurance and pension. Current interests of the group include numerical cosmology and cosmic web clustering with large-volume surveys (in particular SDSS, DESI, LSST), neutrino and dark sector science, and the Lyman-Alpha forest.

Applications should consist of a cover letter, curriculum vitae, publication list, and a statement of research interests, to be submitted to [email protected]. In addition, the applicant should arrange for 2-3 reference letters to be sent directly to the same email address before the deadline.
