Applications are invited for a Postdoctoral Research Fellowship in Theoretical Cosmology (Beecroft Fellowship).
The post is available for a fixed-term duration of 2 years.
Our theoretical cosmology programme at Oxford includes large-scale structure, weak lensing, galaxy formation, galaxy evolution, cosmic background radiation anisotropy, intensity mapping, early universe physics, dark matter, dark energy and modified gravity.
The post-holder would contribute to theoretical and numerical galaxy formation research and have expertise in cosmological radiation-magnetohydrodynamics simulations as well as machine learning. They would interact with David Alonso, Julien Devriendt, Pedro Ferreira, Lance Miller and Adrianne Slyz.
The candidate will take part in the academic life of BIPAC and the astrophysics group at the Physics Department, and have the opportunity to attend and take part in seminars, colloquia and journal clubs.
The candidate will be expected to present their research results at international conferences and prepare articles for publication on those results.
The successful candidate will have a PhD in a relevant area of astronomy, physics or engineering.
The successful candidate will have a proven record of research in this area and a demonstrated capacity for independent work, and be capable of initiating research in a lively group.
Candidates are expected to demonstrate the capablity to initiate research in a lively group and to have expertise in theory and/or data analysis in cosmology.
The post-holder will have the opportunity to teach.
Only applications received before midday 13th May 2021 can be considered. You will be required to upload a brief statement of research interests, CV and details of two referees as part of your online application.
