The Berkeley Center for Cosmological Physics (BCCP) and Theoretical Astrophysics Center (TAC) at the University of California, Berkeley, invites applications for BCCP and TAC Postdoctoral Fellows, with an anticipated start date in summer or fall 2023.

The experimental and observational programs at Berkeley include supernovae, black holes, extra-galactic astronomy, galaxy clustering, weak lensing and cosmic microwave background, and multi-messenger astrophysics including gravity waves, in addition to a broad theoretical astrophysics and cosmology research program. The Fellows will also find a rich data-science environment at UC Berkeley and LBNL, with world-expert researchers in both computer science/statistics and domain science aspects of this emerging field. Information on the BCCP's current activities and membership may be found at the BCCP's website: bccp.berkeley.edu.
