Cosmological research within CPAC covers theory, modeling, and observations targeted at dark energy, dark matter, primordial fluctuations, inflation, and neutrinos. Theory, modeling, and analysis efforts emphasize multi-wavelength survey science, cluster cosmology, and large-scale cosmological simulations. The observational effort focuses on participation in optical sky surveys (DES, DESI, LSST, SPHEREx), CMB observations (SPT), and cross-correlations between the two.
Staff members include Matt Becker, Lindsey Bleem, Salman Habib, Andrew Hearin, Katrin Heitmann, Eve Kovacs, Patricia Larsen, and Adrian Pope. Current postdocs are Alex Alarcon, Nicholas Frontiere, Nesar Ramachandra, Esteban Rangel, and Antonio Villarreal; the effort includes a number of graduate and undergraduate students.
The CPAC Group has strong collaborations with applied mathematicians, computer scientists, and statisticians; access to world-leading supercomputing resources will be available. Interactions with the Experimental Cosmology Group at Argonne and research groups at Fermilab, the University of Chicago, and Northwestern University are highly encouraged.
Applicants should send 1) a CV, 2) a brief statement of research interests, and 3) arrange for three letters of recommendation to be sent to firstname.lastname@example.org as soon as possible. Non-email correspondence should be sent to Katrin Heitmann, HEP Division, Argonne National Laboratory, 9700 South Cass Avenue, Bldg. 360, Argonne, IL 60439, USA.
A Ph.D. is required but must not have been obtained prior to 2018.
