Synergistic activities in the Physics Department also include involvement with the ongoing Dark Energy Survey (DES), institutional membership with Simons Observatory (SO), and preparations for the Vera C. Rubin Observatory’s Legacy Survey of Space and Time (LSST). The candidate will have an opportunity to collaborate with students, postdocs, and faculty working on a range of topics including theoretical and computational cosmology. The department aims to provide an inclusive environment with faculty mentorship and activities that nurture scientific and professional growth.
