Open opportunities for CMB-S4-related positions
This page is for advertising positions related to CMB research, e.g., postdocs, faculty, laboratory and technical positions. To post positions, send description and link to C. Reichardt.

 
Two Postdoctoral research positions in the experimental cosmology group at Argonne
Open until filled.
The High Energy Physics Division at Argonne National Laboratory invites applications for two postdoctoral research positions in the experimental cosmology group. Our group focuses on studies of the cosmic microwave background as part of the South Pole Telescope collaboration, including developing state-of-the-art instrumentation and data analysis for cosmological studies. Successful applicants will have opportunities for leadership roles in the analysis of data from the SPT-3G receiver on the South Pole Telescope, as well as in technology development for future CMB experiments (including CMB-S4). They will have access to multiple test and fabrication facilities, the latter involving close collaboration with the Materials Science Division and the Center for Nanoscale Materials, as well as the opportunity to collaborate closely with the computational cosmology group. Interactions with other groups in the High Energy Physics division, Fermilab, and the University of Chicago are highly encouraged.Learn more and apply

 
Research Associate/Senior Research Associate in Cosmology at Cambridge
Deadline: Jul 20, 2018
We seek a postdoctoral researcher in Cosmology. Candidates should be qualified to undertake research in the areas of CMB, large-scale structure, cosmological tests of fundamental physics, or other areas of cosmology. While the main criterion is research excellence and strong researchers in any relevant area will be seriously considered, candidates interested in working on CMB polarization, gravitational lensing, B-mode cosmology, cosmological surveys or baryon acoustic oscillations with Dr Blake Sherwin are of particular interest. It is anticipated that the successful candidate would available to start December 2018 or the start of 2019.Learn more and apply

Postdoctoral or Research Associate position in Astrophysics and Cosmology at the University of Southern California in the Areas of Instrumentation and Analysis
Review of applications will begin immediately and continue until the position is filled.
The Experimental Cosmology Group at the University of Southern California is looking for a postdoctoral researcher or a research associate to work on the Simons Observatory (SO) and lead the day-to-day activities of the lab.
The group is currently involved in multiple aspects of SO including development of the data acquisition software and hardware, designing the time-ordered-data to maps pipeline, and modelling systematic effects through simulations. We are looking for applicants with a strong background in instrumentation and analysis who can operate independently and integrate quickly into SO. The successful candidate will have latitude to chose which aspects of SO to get involved in and will be expected to mentor graduate students and develop the lab at USC. Collaborations with the theory & data analysis Cosmology group at USC are also encouraged.Learn more

 
Software Architect, Simons Observatory
The Simons Foundation has launched a new computational science organization called the Flatiron Institute. The Flatiron Institute includes three centers — the Center for Computational Astrophysics, the Center for Computational Biology and the Center for Quantum Physics.
The Center for Computational Astronomy (CCA), led by David Spergel, aims to become a focal point for computational astronomy around the world and plans to develop the computational tools needed for calculations, simulations and analyses. In steady state, CCA will be comprised of up to 50–60 researchers.

The Simons Observatory is an international collaboration of approximately 200 scientists and engineers who are building a set of telescopes in the Atacama dedicated to measuring temperature and polarization fluctuations in the microwave background. These measurements should provide our best determination of cosmological parameters, probe the growth and evolution of large-scale structure and have the potential to detect gravitational waves emitted during the first moments of the universe’s expansion.

The Software Architect will report to the director of CCA, David Spergel, and to the project manager for the Simons Observatory, Andrew Bazarko. At the Flatiron Institute, they will be part of an exciting research environment that will include approximately 55 computational astrophysicists and over 100 computational scientists spread between the Scientific Computing Core and the other computational centers.For more information and to apply
