Job Announcement Text: 

Columbia University invites applications for a Postdoctoral Research Scientist position in the Columbia Astrophysics Laboratory to perform research in Physical Cosmology. The successful candidate will join the cosmology group led by Professor Colin Hill in the Physics Department. They will be expected to contribute to ongoing cosmic microwave background (CMB) analysis work in the Atacama Cosmology Telescope and Simons Observatory collaborations. They will have the opportunity to collaborate on research in other areas of cosmology with faculty in CAL and the high-energy theory group.

The initial appointment will be for two years, with the possibility of renewal for a third year contingent upon review. The expected start date for this position is on or around July 1, 2020, although an earlier date can be negotiated. Salary will be commensurate with qualifications and experience.

The successful candidate will have a Ph.D. or the equivalent degree in physics, astrophysics, or a related field. Prior experience in analysis of CMB or other cosmological data is highly desirable, but not required. The candidate is expected to be able to work well independently and cooperatively with a team and to communicate the results of his/her research both orally and in writing. Questions regarding this position can be addressed to Professor Hill at jch2200@columbia.edu.

Applicants should submit a cover letter, curriculum vitae (including a list of publications), and a research statement (three pages maximum) describing their previous work and future plans/interests. They should also arrange to have three letters of reference sent directly to Professor Hill. Applications will be considered only after all of the requested material has been received. Applications and letters should be submitted by email to jch2200@columbia.edu. Application deadline is December 15, 2019. Review of applications will begin on December 16, 2019, and continue until the position is filled.

Columbia University is an equal opportunity/affirmative action employer.
