Horario: 2 years from January 2011
|Requisitos y Descripción|
Descripción:The Observational Cosmology and Extragalactic astrophysics group at the Institute of Space Science (ICE, www.ice.csic.es/en/) seeks to appoint one Postdoctoral fellow. Priority will be given to candidates with a good background on computational astrophysics/cosmology. The candidate will have the opportunity to actively participate in the MICE project (www.ice.cat/mice), working on the development and scientific exploitation of large numerical simulations of structure formation. He/she will also get involved in the activities of the European ITN network on Computational Cosmology, COSMOCOMP, where additional funding (e.g. for start-up, increased traveling and living expenses) may be available. The group has wide access to local supercomputing facilities: the 10,000 core Marenostrum supercomputer (www.bsc.es), the 192 core ICE computing cluster, the Port d'Informacio Cientifica (www.pic.es), and other high-performance computing facilities. Senior members of the group include: F.Castander, M.Crocce, P.Fosalba and E.Gaztanaga. The eligible candidate is also expected to carry out a programme of independent research on different aspects of observational cosmology (galaxy clustering, galaxy formation, CMB) with a focus on large astronomical surveys in which the group is involved (DES, PAU, Euclid, Planck). The appointment is for 2 years, with a flexible starting date (September-December 2011). Applications received before December 1 2010 will receive full consideration, but will continue to be considered until the position is filled. To apply, please send CV, publication list, no more than three pages of research proposal, and at least 2 recommendation letters to Pablo Fosalba (firstname.lastname@example.org).
