Postdoctoral position in Cosmology/Astroparticle Physics, Padova, Italy
The INFN InDark research group leading the Cosmology/Astroparticle program “Inflation, Dark Matter and the Large-Scale Structure of the Universe” announces one postdoctoral position in Cosmology and Astroparticle Physics.
The deadline for application is November 15, 2017.
The appointed fellow should start the fellowship not later than November 1, 2018; however, special requests to defer the starting date can be considered.
The position will be a 1 + 1 year appointment, reserved to non-Italian citizens (or Italian citizens who, at the time of the application, hold a position in a foreign country and have been continuously abroad for at least 3 years). The appointed fellow will work at the Physics and Astronomy Dept. “G.Galilei”, University of Padova (Italy) which offers a stimulating, lively and international environment with multidisciplinary research interests.
The staff team members of the InDark project in Padova are: Nicola Bartolo, Michele Liguori, Sabino Matarrese, Massimo Pietroni.
The group has a broad range of interests in theoretical and observational cosmology, including modelling of LSS observables, inflationary models and primordial non-Gaussianity, primordial sources of gravitational waves, and analysis of large cosmological datasets. The group has a long-standing expertise in LSS and CMB computer simulations, it has a strong involvement in the Planck and Euclid collaborations and it has recently joined the LISA satellite Cosmology working group.
Applications, in electronic form, must be sent to INFN not later than November 15, 2017 through the website
(see TITLE: POST-DOCTORAL FELLOWSHIPS IN THEORETICAL PHYSICS)
and one should choose PADOVA Inflation, Large Scale Structures and Cosmology
The following items are requested for the online application
At least three reference letters (specifying name, surname and e- mail of each referee).
