Job Announcement Text: 

Applications are invited for two postdoctoral positions in experimental and observational cosmology at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign. Research will be in collaboration with Professors Jeffrey Filippini and Joaquin Vieira, as well as the broader cosmology faculty at U. Illinois. Preferred start date is Fall 2021.

Opportunities are available in multiple current projects, with particular focus on: (1) camera development and commissioning for the Terahertz Intensity Mapper (TIM), a NASA-funded balloon-borne spectrometer mission using kinetic-inductance detectors; and (2) cosmic microwave background instrumentation efforts for CMB-S4, the South Pole Telescope (SPT), and SPIDER. The position may include opportunities for deployment to Antarctica for instrument commissioning and operations. Applicants are encouraged to contact Professors Filippini (jpf@illinois.edu) and Vieira (jvieira@illinois.edu) for further details.

Candidates are expected to have earned or be close to earning a Ph.D. in Physics or Astronomy, to be experienced with relevant instrumentation (e.g. cryogenics, low-temperature detectors, and superconducting electronics) and data analysis techniques, and to have strong oral and written communication skills. Applications should be submitted electronically at https://my.physics.illinois.edu/join/. Please include a cover letter, curriculum vitae, publication list, brief description of research interests, and contact information for three references. Application submission by April 16th is strongly preferred, but the position will remain open until filled.

The University of Illinois is an Affirmative Action/Equal Opportunity employer (http://go.illinois.edu/EEO). Any offer for this position is contingent upon the successful completion of a criminal background check process in accordance with the University of Illinois Background Check Policy.
