The Astrophysics & Cosmology group at the Technion - Israel Institute of Technology - expects to offer one or more postdoctoral fellowship positions. The main selection criteria will be outstanding research accomplishments, creativity and promise of future achievement in any field of theoretical astrophysics, cosmology and planetary science as well as experimental and observational high-energy astrophysics.
One postdoc position will be in the field of Cosmology. Although we are primarily interested in candidates with expertise in large scale structure probes of fundamental physics, we encourage applications from candidates in other areas of specializations in Cosmology.
The positions are for up to three years pending on progress. The start date is flexible, but not later than December 2018. The appointed fellows are expected to carry out both independent original research, as well as collaborative work with group members. Current faculty members include Ehud Behar, Vincent Desjacques, Ari Laor, Adi Nusser, Hagai Perets and Noam Soker.
Applicants should include a CV and a description of research work, and arrange to have three confidential letters of recommenda- tion sent to the email address given below. Description of research work/interests should not exceed 3 pages (and at most 1-2 additional pages for references and figures). Review of applications will begin on January 15, 2018, and continue until the positions are filled. Inquiries and requests for any additional information should be directed to the same address.
