The Waterloo Centre for Astrophysics (WCA) at the University of Waterloo invites applications for one 3-year WCA Postdoctoral Fellowship in any area of astrophysics and one Postdoctoral Research Associate focussing on studies of Large-Scale Structure. The recently formed Centre consists of 13 research-active faculty members, and has active visitor and meeting programs. Research is undertaken in areas including cosmology, large-scale structure, CMB, gravitational lensing, black holes, galaxies, clusters, quasars and sub-mm astronomy, with interests in a number of future experiments including Euclid, CCATp, CFIS, DESI and LSST (https://uwaterloo.ca/astrophysics-centre/). The group has a close connection to the Perimeter Institute, which is located just a short walk away.

The WCA Postdoctoral Fellow will be expected to undertake a program of original research either independently or in collaboration with others in the Centre, working in any area of astrophysics. The Research Associate will work with Prof. Percival on galaxy redshifts surveys including DESI and Euclid. A competitive salary and research allowance will be provided for both positions, which are expected to start Sept 2020.

Candidates should apply by accessing the following website: https://ofas.uwaterloo.ca and uploading a CV, bibliography, research statement, and entering the email addresses of three referees who should send in references by the application deadline of January 6, 2020. Candidates are encourages to submit referee email addresses as soon as possible in order to give referees time to respond; application materials can be updated up until the closing date. All applicants will automatically be considered for both positions.
