Peng Cheng laboratory, a leading institute in Artificial intelligence (AI) in Shenzhen, China, invites applications for postdoctoral positions at the interface between AI, Machine Learning, Statistics, and Astrophysics. Successful applicants have opportunities to collaborate with world renowned experts in the field of computer science and the whole science committee of 6.5m Multiplexed Survey Telescope (MUST) https://must.astro.tsinghua.edu.cn/must/en/index.html. We particularly look for excellent astrophysicists who have strong interests and experiences in machine learning. For science topics, we particularly look for photometric redshift estimate, cluster cosmology, weak lensing cosmology, baryonic acoustic oscillations (BAO), galaxy formation, circumgalactic medium (CGM) and intergalactic medium (IGM). Relevant science can be used in future survey design and science application in MUST and CSST.
Appointments are for 2 years, with renewal for a third year likely, contingent upon satisfactory progress. We provide a world competitive salary (about 500K RMB per year), independent research funds, and benefits. The anticipated starting date is from spring to Fall of 2022 (negotiable).
