The Laboratoire d'Annecy-le-Vieux de Physique des Particules (CNRS/IN2P3 - LAPP) has an immediate opening for a post-doctoral research position in cosmology in the framework of the Excellence Laboratory: ENIGMASS - http://enigmass.in2p3.fr/
The postdoc will join a cosmology team based at both Annecy (LAPP) and Grenoble (LPSC) and will work within the Large Synoptic Survey Telescope project (LSST) and the Dark Energy Science Collaboration (DESC). The successful applicant will focus their research on Weak Lensing applied to Galaxy Clusters and Cosmic Shear. Code development and optimization will be an important part of the work.
The candidate should have a strong background in cosmology, ideally with experience in weak lensing studies. Prior experience with photometric datasets and strong computational skills would also be significant assets.
The position is available immediately for a period of three years. The salary will depend on the working experience of the selected candidate.
The evaluation of the applications (a single pdf file with cover letter, CV including publications, research statement, email addresses of three people who can provide letters of recommendation) will start immediately, and will continue until the position is filled. The application documents as well as further questions shall be directed to Dominique Boutigny, firstname.lastname@example.org.
