The Institute of Cosmology and Gravitation (ICG) at the University of Portsmouth invites applications at the level of Reader or Professor (equivalent to associate professor or full professor) to strengthen its existing leadership in cosmology and extragalactic astrophysics.

The ICG is a world-leading research institute for cosmology, gravitation and astrophysics. We encourage applications from scientists with an excellent record of high-quality research publications related to cosmology and/or extragalactic astrophysics, as well as strong evidence of impact (innovation and/or public engagement) and external grant funding (including personal research fellowships).

The ICG consists of 15 academic staff, 20 postdoctoral researchers and 25 PhD students, and has an active international visitors programme. ICG has major involvement in
* Dark Energy Survey (DES),

* ESA’s Euclid satellite mission,
* Square Kilometre Array (SKA),
* Laser Interferometer Gravitational-Wave Observatory (LIGO), and
* 4-metre Multi-Object Spectroscopic Telescope (4MOST).
The ICG hosts the 4288-core SCIAMA supercomputer.

We are strongly dedicated to embedding equality, diversity and inclusion (EDI) within our community. As an Athena SWAN and Race Equality Charter award holder, a member of Stonewall and a Disability Confident Employer we are passionate about creating a welcoming and inclusive environment, regardless of your background. We welcome applications from all talented people. We want our workforce to be representative of our diverse student population.
