Job Announcement Text: 

The French ANR funded project BATMAN (Better Accuracy and robusTness for Mass Assessment of Neutrino) is inviting applications for three post-doctoral positions in cosmology (two in Orsay, one in Toulouse). The project aims at using the combined current CMB observations with better and coherent modelling of astrophysics signals and systematics to constrain the neutrino mass and extensions of the standard LCDM model. 

  • Reionisation, large scale structures and CMB at the research institute of space astrophysics (IAS, Orsay, France) to work with Marian Douspis to revisit the constraints on the reionisation history from current observations and how it can be described by a generic model to be used as input in CMB probes of reionisation (TT damping, EE bump, kSZ spectrum), and upcoming 21cm observations. See Description
  • Clusters of galaxies and large scale structures at the Institute of Research in Astrophysics and Planetology (IRAP,Toulouse, France) to work with Etienne Pointecouteau to revisit the state-of-the-art gas model in massive halos to build up coherent models for probes such as tSZ and kSZ power spectra, SZ cluster number counts and kSZ pairwise velocities. See Description
  • CMB cosmology and neutrino physics (IJCLab, Orsay, France) to work with Matthieu Tristram on the exploitation of the latest CMB measurements to derive robust and precise constraints on the neutrino sector including the neutrino hierarchy but not exclusively. See Description

The application should include a cover letter, a research statement, a CV, a list of selected publications (max 10) in a single file in PDF format to be sent, by email only to [email protected], stating in the subject: PostDoc-REIO, -GAS or -CMB and 2 Letters of Reference to be sent at the same email address.

We seek a diverse pool of applicants and we will consider all applications on equal basis.


Included Benefits: 

health insurance, holidays, retirement scheme.
