Open Position Postdoctoral Position in Observational Cosmology at IFAE

Opening Date:
Closing Date:

The High Energy Physics Institute in Barcelona (IFAE) announces the opening of an ERC-funded 3-year Postdoctoral Position in the Observational Cosmology group. IFAE is a worldwide-recognized center for fundamental research in Particle Physics, Astroparticle Physics and Cosmology, and provides an international, dynamic, and competitive environment for training of young researchers.

The IFAE Cosmology group is presently formed by 4 faculty, 3 post-docs and 5 PhD students and is a full member of the Dark Energy Survey (DES), the PAU Survey Collaboration, the Dark Energy Spectroscopic Instrument (DESI), the Euclid Consortium and the Dark Energy Science Collaboration (DESC) of the Legacy Survey of Space and Time (LSST) at the Rubin Observatory. The group plays leading roles in the analysis of DES, PAU, and DESI, and is preparing for the data exploitation of the Euclid and LSST-DESC surveys.

The successful candidate will join the ERC-funded COSMO-LYA research group, led by Andreu Font-Ribera. COSMO-LYA will use innovative techniques and new data from the Dark Energy Spectroscopic Instrument (DESI) to address some of the open questions in fundamental physics. Expertise in numerical cosmological simulations will be particularly valued, as well as experience with emulators of the clustering of tracers of large-scale structure.

Interested candidates must have a PhD in Physics or Astronomy on the date of the contract start and provide a letter of interest, a CV and arrange for two letters of reference to be sent by e-mail to .

Sending CVs to the above address implies consent to the legal warning at the bottom of IFAE’s Home Page .

IFAE is an equal opportunity employer committed to diversity in the workplace, and we welcome application from all qualified candidates. Women are particularly encouraged to apply.
