Job Announcement Text: 

This is a three-year Level A postdoctoral research associate position to support the creation of a new generation of Milky Way analogue simulations with Prof Alan Duffy at the Swinburne University of Technology, part of the newly formed Australian Research Council Centre of Excellence for Dark Matter Particle Physics (CDM). These simulations will explore a range of dark matter candidates (e.g. self-interacting, warm) in collaboration with the Centre’s broader theoretical research programs. The properties of the resulting dark matter distribution in the simulated galaxies will then feed into the expectations of the direct detection campaign of the Centre, as well as indirect constraints from astrophysical observations, including self-annihilation signals. As the Associate, you will therefore bridge two sides of the Centre, as well as pursue your own research outputs with the simulations.
