Job Announcement Text: 

Applications are invited for a postdoctoral position in Cosmology, in the Department of Physics and Astronomy at the University of Padova, Italy. 
The successful applicant will work at the development of statistical methods and numerical pipelines for the study of cosmological non-Gaussianity in Large Scale Structure datasets.
