Job Announcement Text: 

Applications are invited for a post-doctoral research position at the University of California Los Angeles. The successful applicant will work with Prof. Tommaso Treu on the investigation of the nature of dark matter using a variety of techniques and datasets.

Available resources include Hubble Space Telescope, Keck and VLT data, and access to the Hoffman2 shared cluster.
