Job Announcement Text: 

The University of Arizona Department of Astronomy and Steward Observatory seeks applicants to fill a full time Postdoctoral Research Associate in observational and experimental astrophysics. The postdoc will work in the research group of Professor Dan Marrone on experiments designed to map out the growth of galaxies across large fractions of the history of the universe. These instruments operate at submilimeter wavelengths and the postdoc will participate in some or all of the following tasks: instrument design and testing, instrument assembly and operation, preparation of data analysis pipelines, and/or data analysis. The relevant instruments are the Tomographic Ionized-carbon Mapping Experiment, which will be reinstalled on Kitt Peak in 2021, and the Terahertz Intensity Mapper balloon, which will launch in early 2024 from Antarctica. The postdoc may also study high-redshift galaxy formation as part of the South Pole Telescope submillimeter galaxy team, using ALMA and other datasets.

 

The successful applicants will have access to the observational and computational facilities of the Department of Astronomy and Steward Observatory, including the 10-meter Submillimeter Telescope on Mt. Graham, the 12-meter ALMA Prototype Antenna on Kitt Peak, the 2×8.4m Large Binocular Telescope, the 6.5m MMT, and the twin 6.5m Magellan telescopes.
