Cosmological research at Argonne covers theory, modeling, and observations targeted at dark energy, dark matter, primordial fluctuations, inflation, and neutrinos. Theory and modeling activities emphasize multi-wavelength survey science, the galaxy-halo connection, cluster cosmology, and large-scale cosmological simulations. Analysis efforts cover topics such as CMB power spectra, CMB lensing, galaxy clustering, and weak and strong gravitational lensing. The observational focus is on optical sky surveys (DES, DESI, Rubin Obs/LSST, SPHEREx), CMB instrumentation and observations (CMB-S4, SPT), and cross-correlations between the two.
Staff members include Matt Becker, Amy Bender, Lindsey Bleem, Clarence Chang, JD Emberson, Salman Habib, Andrew Hearin, Katrin Heitmann, Eve Kovacs, Patricia Larsen, Adrian Pope, Nesar Ramachandra, Esteban Rangel, and Gensheng Wang. Current postdocs are Alex Alarcon, Michael Buehlmann, Nicholas Frontiere, Riccardo Gualtieri, Florian Keruzore, Zhaodi Pan, Markus Rau, and Antonio Villarreal; the effort includes a number of graduate and undergraduate students.
Postdocs can benefit from strong collaborations with applied mathematicians, computer scientists, device physicists, materials scientists, and statisticians; they will also have access to state-of-the-art microfabrication facilities and world-leading supercomputing resources. Interactions with 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 [email protected] 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.
