Job Announcement Text: 

Two positions as Postdoctoral Research Fellow in cosmology are available at the Institute of Theoretical Astrophysics of the University of Oslo.

The fellowship period is for two years for both positions, with a starting date as close as possible to March 1st 2018.

The positions are dedicated to a Horizon2020 funded project called BeyondPlanck, which aims to deliver new Planck LFI maps and associated science products by 2020. One of the two positions is dedicated to low-level data processing and map-making, and this work will be supervised by Prof. Hans Kristian Eriksen. The second position is dedicated to astrophysical component separation, and this work will be supervised by Dr. Ingunn Kathrine Wehus. In addition to the University of Oslo, the BeyondPlanck collaboration include INAF Trieste, the University of Helsinki, University of Milano, and Planetek. Close collaboration with all of these institutions is expected.

The primary requirement for both positions is a strong programming background. In addition, previous experience with CMB data analysis, and Planck in particular, is highly desirable. A generous personal travel/expenses grant of 50 kNOK is available per year. The institute also has access to world-class computing facilities, both in-house and on-campus, that are directly available to the candidate. The cosmology group at the Institute participates heavily in the Planck, SPIDER, COMAP and Euclid experiments, and is a member of the LiteBIRD Joint Study group.
