Job Announcement Text: 

Applications are invited for two Postdoctoral Research Fellowships in Theoretical Cosmology  (Beecroft Fellowship)

The posts are available for a fixed-term duration of 2 years.

Our theoretical cosmology programme at Oxford includes large-scale structure, weak lensing, galaxy formation, galaxy evolution, cosmic background radiation anisotropy, intensity mapping, early universe physics, dark matter, dark energy and modified gravity.

The post-holders will contribute to and develop a personal research programme in theoretical cosmology (which may include numerical modelling and/or data analysis), interacting with Erminia Calabrese, Julien Devriendt, Pedro Ferreira, Lance Miller and Adrianne Slyz. The candidates will take part in the academic life of BIPAC and the astrophysics group at the Physics Department, and have the opportunity to attend and take part in seminars, colloquia and journal clubs.

The candidates will be expected to present their research results at international conferences and prepare articles for publication on those results.

The successful candidates will have or be close to obtaining a PhD in a relevant area of astronomy, physics or engineering and  will have a proven record of research in this area and a demonstrated capacity for independent work, and be capable of initiating research in a lively group.

Candidates are expected to demonstrate the capablity to initiate research in a lively group and to have expertise in theory and/or data analysis in cosmology.

The post-holders will have the opportunity to teach.

Only applications received before midday 30 November 2017 can be considered. You will be required to upload a brief statement of research interests and a CV as part of your online application. You will also need to submit three letters of support to bipac2018@physics.ox.ac.uk quoting your name in the subject line.
