Job Announcement Text: 

The University of Arizona (UA) Department of Astronomy and Steward Observatory (SO) invites applications for one or more Postdoctoral Research Associate positions to work with Drs Elisabeth Krause, Tim Eifler, and Eduardo Rozo on theoretical and observational projects with cosmological surveys. We are deeply involved in the ongoing Dark Energy Survey (DES) analysis, in preparing for the early data phase of the Large Synoptic Survey Telescope (LSST, start 2019) and the future NASA Wide-Field Infrared Survey Telescope (WFIRST). We are also a full member of the Dark Energy Spectroscopic Instrument (DESI) and interested in exploring synergies between photometric and spectroscopic surveys.

Candidates should have a recent PhD in astronomy/physics or related fields and a strong background in cosmological data analysis, numerical simulations, or theory. In particular, we welcome applicants with research interests in combining multiple cosmological probes and data sets from different surveys. UA/SO offers a world-class research environment in ground and space-based astrophysics with strong interdisciplinary programs across the departments of astronomy, physics and planetary sciences. We have access to high-end, local supercomputing resources (~275 TFLOPS) including distributed, shared-memory, and GPU architectures, and we can access external supercomputing resources through our involvement in DES, LSST, WFIRST.
