Job Announcement Text: 

One or two (contingent on funding) postdoctoral positions are offered in the group of Matthew Hayes. With recent grants for four new hires, we will focus on identifying and characterizing first-light galaxies, early Active Galactic Nuclei and black-hole formation scenarios, and the impact of these populations on the IGM and cosmic reionization. The positions are related to observational projects obtained under some of the largest campaigns with JWST Cycle 1, HST Cycle 30, and ESO/VLT. LSST access is also possible. The projects will be conducted in collaboration with international teams.
