The physical cosmology group at ICC-University of Barcelona, is seeking outstanding postdoctoral candidates. We are looking for researchers with a strong background in cosmology and analysis of large-scale structure surveys. Applicants must have a PhD in Astronomy, Astrophysics or Physics, or have fulfilled all the PhD requirements by the start of the contact.
The successful candidate will work with Licia Verde and the group on the interpretation of state-of-the art and forthcoming cosmological data. Experience with cosmology, analysis of data, statistics and coding is highly desirable. Familiarity with high performance computing is a welcome plus. Members of the group are involved in DESI, EUCLID, and COrE.
The appointment will be guaranteed for two years, and can be extended depending on performance and availability of funding. The position is associated to the IDEAS European Research Council ERC-COG grant n. 725327 (P.I. Verde).

Referees will be contacted automatically once the application is submitted. Applications will be accepted until the position is filled with consideration guaranteed to all complete applications received by Nov, 10, 2017. The position is expected to begin in the fall of 2018, but earlier starting date is negotiable.
The ICC is a interdisciplinary center devoted to fundamental research in cosmology, astrophysics and particle physics. It is one of the few Spanish research institutes awarded with the Maria de Maeztu distinction for excellence in research and provides a dynamic and stimulating environement for young researchers.
