At least two Postdoctoral Positions will be available in the COSMIB (Cosmic Structures at Milano Bicocca) research group as a part of the ERC-funded "CosmicWeb" Project (PI: S. Cantalupo). The group research activities focus on the exploration of Cosmic Structures at high redshift on different scales - from galaxies to the CircumGalactic and Intergalactic Media - using both numerical models and multi-wavelength emission observations.
For the position(s) advertised here, we invite applications by candidates which are interested in numerical studies of CGM/IGM emission at high redshift using high-resolution cosmological simulations and/or radiation-hydrodynamics. These studies will be compared to new deep multi-wavelength observations (JWST, Chandra, ALMA, MUSE) allocated to our COSMIB group members. In-house HPC facilities as well as national HPC resources will be available to the successful candidate(s).
Interested candidates are invited to send their CV (including publication list) and a brief research statement (including previous experiences) by December 20, 2021 to the following email address: [email protected] specifying “theory position” in the subject line. Three letters of reference should also be sent, directly by the referees, to the same email address by the same date. Candidates will be considered until the positions are filled. For other open positions in our group see here.
The position(s) will be available from Spring 2022 with the possibility of later starting dates. The initial contract duration will be two years with possible yearly extensions. The successful candidates should hold a PhD in astronomy, physics or related field by the starting date. The position(s) include generous travel and research equipment allowances. We particularly welcome candidates from traditionally underrepresented groups in academia.
