Job Description

The Department of Physics and Astronomy at the University of California, Riverside (UCR) seeks applications for a postdoctoral position for research in experimental/observational cosmology. This search is a part of a new experimental effort being built at UCR in the general areas of cosmological sciences (gravitational wave, dark matter, neutrino, CMB, and more), currently consisting of Barry Barish, Steve Choi, Jon Richardson, and Shawn Westerdale, and continuing to grow (with new faculty searches ongoing). The theory group is represented by Yanou Cui, Flip Tanedo, Hai-Bo Yu, Simeon Bird, Anson D’Aloisio, and Laura Sales. 

The selected candidate will primarily work with Choi’s group in developing and commissioning new instruments and/or data analyses for a combination of astronomical observatories, including the CCAT Observatory, Atacama Cosmology Telescope, Simons Observatory, and CMB-S4. The initial appointment is for 2 years with possibility for renewal based on satisfactory performance and continued funding. Applicants should have a Ph.D. in physics, astrophysics, or a related field, with experience in astronomical instrumentation and/or cosmological data analyses.

To apply, fill out the application form on this link with a CV, research statement (up to two pages in length), cover letter, and contact information for three references. Review of applications will begin on April 30, 2024 and continue until the position is filled.
