We are seeking to hire a postdoc to begin this coming fall (2021) to work on high-redshift galaxies and ionized bubbles in the early universe. The position is part of a binational grant led by Dan Stark (University of Arizona) and Adi Zitrin (Ben-Gurion University), funded by the NSF and BSF (latter being US-Israel Binational Science Foundation). The candidate will join Zitrin's group at BGU, located in the city of Be'er-Sheva in Israel (1 hour direct train ride from Tel-Aviv), although substantial visits to Arizona are possible. The project is in large part observational, involving expertise in high-redshift galaxies, reionization, as well as, possibly, lens-modeling and lensing related science. There should also be some free time to work on other projects, including in the various lensing and high-redshift surveys we are involved in with Hubble, ALMA, and JWST. Stipend is competitive in local terms (about ~3300 USD per month). The position is for three years, to be renewed on a yearly basis based on achievements.
