The Penn State Institute for Gravitation and the Cosmos and the Department of Physics has two open postdoctoral positions in gravitational-wave astrophysics and data analysis. The first of these is focused on harnessing gravitational-wave data from LIGO, Virgo and KAGRA detectors to address problems in fundamental physics, cosmology, and astrophysics. The second position is focused on preparing the Mock Data Challenges for the next generation of gravitational-wave detectors in collaboration with colleagues at MIT and the University of Syracuse.
The Data Challenges support the Cosmic Explorer (CE) and Einstein Telescope (ET) projects in understanding the challenges in the detection and parameter estimation of gravitational waves in signal-rich data sets.
