The Universidad Autónoma de Madrid (UAM, Spain), invites applications for ONE post-doctoral researcher to work on topics within the "Illuminating the dark sector of the Universe" ATCAM project (2019-T1/TIC-12702), led by Dr. Violeta Gonzalez-Perez.
We offer a post-doctoral position to study theoretically how galaxies trace the dark sector. This project will involve the analysis of very large data sets, produced in super computing facilities. The candidate is expected to develop a method for generating mock catalogues tailored to up-coming galaxy surveys, encapsulating the effects that baryons might have on the observational probes used in cosmology.
The appointment will be for a period of 18 months, starting on 1st November 2022, or as soon as possible afterwards. The starting salary is around 25000 euros per year (before taxes) and there are funds for travelling.
Applicants should submit their application to the attention of Dr. Violeta Gonzalez-Perez (violetagp_at_protonmail.com) by the 9th January 2022. The application should be a SINGLE pdf document with a one page cover letter, a CV, the names of three people that could provide references when requested, publication list and a research statement (no more than 3 pages).
We are committed to increasing the number of women and other underrepresented groups in our workforce and therefore we encourage applications from such qualified individuals.
