ICG Postdoctoral Research Fellowship

Employment type:  Full time, Fixed-term (2 years)

Salary:  £34,520 - £37,706

Position number:  ZZ003446

Closing date: 5th January 2018

Interview date:  To be scheduled between January 15th – 26th 2018

We announce a two-year postdoctoral fellowship at the Institute of Cosmology and Gravitation (ICG) at the University of Portsmouth aimed at promising early career researchers in gravitational wave science, cosmology and astrophysics. The successful candidate will have demonstrated excellence in research, complementing and extending the existing ICG research interests and expertise. Over the course of the fellowship, they will be expected to develop their own programme of research and innovation, and help attract external funding to the ICG.

 

The ICG consists of 13 academic staff, 20 postdoctoral researchers and over 20 PhD students, and has an active international visitors programme. Portsmouth is a member of the Sloan Digital Sky Survey (SDSS-IV) and Dark Energy Survey, and the Large Synpotic Survey Telescope (LSST), with involvement in the Dark Energy Spectroscopic Instrument (DESI) and other major international collaborations, including ESA’s Euclid satellite mission and the Square Kilometre Array (SKA). The University of Portsmouth is a member of the South-East Physics Network (SEPnet) and hosts the 3704-core SCIAMA supercomputer. More information is available at http://www.icg.port.ac.uk/

 

We welcome applications from all qualified applicants, but applications are particularly encouraged from traditionally under-represented groups in science. The University of Portsmouth and the ICG hold Athena SWAN bronze awards and the university is an Institute of Physics Project Juno Supporter; these projects show a commitment to introduce organisational and cultural practices that promote diversity and equality in science and create a better working environment for men and women.

 

Applications (application form, CV, publication list and research statement for the fellowship) should be submitted via the online application system by the closing date.  Applicants should also arrange for up to three reference letters to be sent by email to icg-admin@port.ac.uk, to arrive by the same date. We expect the fellowship to start 1st September 2018 or as close to that date as feasible. Informal enquiries to Prof. Bob Nichol (bob.nichol@port.ac.uk)

 

This fellowship is different from the advertised Dennis Sciama Fellowship and applicants interested in both fellowships will need to apply separately to both.

 

All applications for this position will be processed and conducted in compliance with UK legislation relevant at that time.
