We are seeking two outstanding cosmologists who will undertake research at the University of Queensland as part of Professor Tamara Davis’ ARC Laureate Fellowship. High level research positions of up to five years duration are available.
We are looking for a broad range of talents to build a cohesive team focused on understanding dark energy and dark matter both observationally and theoretically using next generation data sets. This includes but is not limited to, cosmological theory, dark energy phenomenology, large scale structure theory and observations, supernova cosmology, and/or gravitational waves.
Our group has active collaborations with DES, DESI, 4MOST, LSST, and ASKAP and access to the ESO optical telescopes and Australian observing and computing facilities.
The candidate will ideally have experience in doing cosmology with large surveys (spectroscopic or photometric), or doing theoretical explorations relevant to these surveys.
The candidate will have access to the substantial resources of the ARC Laureate Fellowship, and would be invited to help drive the direction of the group, including selection and co-supervision of students.
The successful candidate will have the opportunity (but no obligation) to participate in undergraduate teaching, and to supervise undergraduate and postgraduate research students. Ample travel funding will be available.
The University of Queensland values diversity and inclusion and actively encourages applications from those who bring diversity to the University.
This role is a full-time position; however flexible working arrangements may be negotiated.
Note: We are simultaneously advertising for a five-year lectureship (half research, half teaching) in astrophysics at UQ that we also encourage you to apply for.
