Applications are invited for a Postdoctoral Research Fellowship in Theoretical Cosmology (Beecroft Fellowship)
The post is available for a fixed-term duration of 3 years.
Our theoretical cosmology programme at Oxford includes large-scale structure, weak lensing, galaxy formation, galaxy evolution, cosmic background radiation anisotropy, intensity mapping, early universe physics, dark matter, dark energy and modified gravity..
The successful candidate will be required to develop a personal research programme in theoretical cosmology (which may include numerical modelling and/or data analysis), interacting with faculty members. The candidate will be required to demonstrate the ability to manage their own academic research and administrative activities which may involve small scale project management, to co-ordinate multiple aspects of work to meet deadlines. The candidate will take part in the academic life of BIPAC and the astrophysics group at the Physics Department, and in particular attending and taking part in seminars, colloquia and journal clubs.
Candidates should have experience of contributing to publications and/or presentations and be able to contribute new ideas for research projects and research income generation.
The successful candidate will have or be close to obtaining a PhD in a relevant area of astronomy, physics or engineering.
The successful candidate will have a proven record of research in this area and a demonstrated capacity for independent work, and be capable of initiating research in a lively group.
Candidates are expected to demonstrate the capablity to initiate research in a lively group and to have expertise in theory and/or data analysis in cosmology.
The post-holder will have the opportunity to teach.
