The High Energy Physics Division at Argonne National Laboratory invites applications for postdoctoral research positions in the Experimental Cosmology group. Members of our group study the cosmic microwave background as participants in the South Pole Telescope (SPT, https://pole.uchicago.edu/) and CMB-S4 (https://cmb-s4.org/) collaborations.
Successful applicants will have opportunities for cosmological analysis of data from the SPT-3G receiver as well as in technology development for CMB-S4. They will have access to multiple test and fabrication facilities at Argonne, the latter involving close collaboration with the Materials Science Division and the Center for Nanoscale Materials. Opportunities also exist to collaborate closely with the Cosmological Physics and Advanced Computing group as well as groups at Fermilab and the University of Chicago.
Applicants should have a Ph.D. in physics, astronomy, or a closely related field before the position begins. Review of applications will begin immediately and continue until the positions are filled. Please submit a cover letter, statement of research interests, CV at the link below. Applicants should arrange for three letters of recommendation to be submitted directly to firstname.lastname@example.org.
