Job Announcement Text: 

Berkeley Lab’s Computational Cosmology Center (C3) is seeking postdoctoral fellows to work on topics related to cosmological simulations and inference of cosmological parameters using simulations and observational data. Areas of interest are broad, including: development of hydrodynamical Nyx code and simulations, large-scale structure and reionization models, statistical and machine learning methods for future sky surveys, surrogate modeling of expensive cosmological simulations and others.  Ideal candidates would be capable of generating their own research ideas and have good programming skills.

Berkeley Lab is a full member of several cosmology surveys, including eBOSS, DESI, and LSST, and is involved in CMB experiments.  Postdoctoral researchers will have access to significant allocations on some of the world-leading supercomputers including Cori (Berkeley/NERSC), Theta (Argonne/ALCF) and Summit (Oakridge/OLCF), and will interact with researchers from UC Berkeley departments including Berkeley Center for Cosmological Physics (BCCP) and Berkeley Institute for Data Science (BIDS).
