CONTEXT OF THE POSITION
The Aix-Marseille Initiative of Excellence of the A*Midex university foundation is funding two postdoctoral positions at the Centre de Physique de Particules de Marseille (CPPM Lab) for a duration of two years (+ one-year extension possible) in the topic of observational cosmology. These positions are funded in the context of the DARKUNI project (P.I. Julian Bautista) which overall goal is to learn about the dark sector of the Universe from observations of the large-scale structures. We aim to measure the growth-rate of structures from a joint analysis of redshift-space distortions and peculiar velocities. The CPPM is active member of spectroscopic surveys DESI and Euclid and photometric surveys ZTF and Rubin-LSST.
The aimed starting date is to be arranged between the selected candidate and the university administration but ideally before summer 2022.
Centre de Physique des Particules de Marseille, Marseille, France.
Two years contract with possibility for one-year extension.
The first selected candidate is expected to spend at least 50% of their research time on the data analysis of DESI and/or ZTF surveys.
The second selected candidate is expected to spend at least 50% of their research time on the data analysis preparation of Euclid spectroscopic data.
The monthly salary will be between 2466 and 2891 euros per month (before taxes), depending on the experience of the candidate.
QUALIFICATIONS/SKILLS/EDUCATION & RESEARCH REQUIREMENTS
We welcome applications of highly skilled candidates with experience in cosmology, scientific computing, statistics, and data analysis. Experience with data from spectro/photometric surveys and galaxy clustering is highly recommended. We value candidates with good communication skills, willing to work as a team and in the context of large scientific collaborations. Candidates should have a PhD degree at the time of the start of the contract.
