Interview date:  17 April 2018 

The Institute of Cosmology and Gravitation (ICG) at the University of Portsmouth invites applications for a Professor of Cosmology to strengthen its existing leadership in key astronomical surveys.

The ICG is a world-leading research institute in cosmology, gravitation and astrophysics. In REF2014, 96% of our research outputs were judged internationally excellent or world-leading. We encourage applications from scientists with an excellent record of high quality research publications related to observational and/or survey cosmology, as well as strong evidence of impact (innovation and/or public engagement) and external grant funding (including personal research fellowships).

The ICG values a diverse workforce and welcomes applications from all sections of community particularly under-represented groups in science. The ICG and the University of Portsmouth hold Athena SWAN bronze awards, which shows our commitment to introducing organisational and cultural practices that promote gender equality in science and create a better working environment for men and women.

The ICG consists of 13 academic staff, 20 postdoctoral researchers, more than 20 PhD students, and has an active international visitors programme.

ICG has major involvement in:
• Sloan Digital Sky Survey (SDSS-IV),

• Dark Energy Survey (DES),

• Large Synoptic Survey Telescope (LSST),

• Dark Energy Spectroscopic Instrument (DESI),

• ESA’s Euclid satellite mission,

• Square Kilometre Array (SKA).

The University of Portsmouth is both a member of the South-East Physics Network (SEPnet) and the STFC-funded Data Intensive Science Centre in SEPnet (DISCnet).

The ICG hosts the 3704-core SCIAMA supercomputer. More information can be found at http://www.icg.port.ac.uk/

Please contact the ICG directors, Professors Bob Nichol (bob.nichol@port.ac.uk) and David Wands (david.wands@port.ac.uk) to discuss this opportunity. Your application (application form and CV) should be submitted via the online application system by the closing date. Your application will be processed and conducted in compliance with UK legislation relevant at that time.
