Postdoctoral fellowship

Stockholm University

Open position

The physics department of Stockholm University is searching for an outstanding individual to conduct original research on the origin and evolution of cosmic structure using cosmological survey data and novel machine learning methods. Funded by a Simons Foundation grant to Jens Jasche the project will be part of a new collaboration on “Learning the Universe” (www.learning-the-universe.org), focusing on developing and applying novel Data Science and Machine Learning techniques to reconstruct the initial conditions of our universe and test fundamental physics with current and next-generation cosmological surveys. The successful candidate will be a member of the Simons Collaboration with ample opportunities for multidisciplinary collaborations with researchers of the participating institutions (Columbia University, Lawrence Berkeley National Lab, Harvard University, Flatiron Institute, Institut Astrophysique de Paris, Université de Montreal, Princeton University, Carnegie Mellon University, MPA Garching). In addition, the successful candidate will be part of the Oskar Klein Centre for Cosmoparticle Physics (http://www.okc.albanova.se/) in Stockholm. This rich scientific environment comprises more than a hundred researchers working in both theory and experiment in astronomy, astrophysics, and particle physics at Stockholm University and the Royal Institute for Technology. The OKC hosts a vibrant research program on dark matter, dark energy, transient and multimessenger astrophysics, structure formation, and related particle physics questions. Postdoctoral associates are also welcome to participate in Scientific Programs at Nordita, the Nordic Institute for Theoretical Physics, which brings together leading experts to work on specific topics for extended periods. The successful candidate will further be a member of our Aquila consortium (www.aquila-consortium.org), an international research collaboration developing novel data science techniques to study fundamental physics with cosmic structures. Postdoctoral positions are appointed primarily for purposes of research. Applicants are expected to hold a Swedish doctoral degree or an equivalent degree from another country in physics, astronomy, or related subject by the time of the appointment. The position involves full-time employment for a maximum of two years, with the possibility of extension under special circumstances. Start date 1 September 2022 or as per agreement (funding is available to start immediately). Stockholm University strives to be a workplace free from discrimination and with equal opportunities for all. The required application material includes a cover letter, a CV, a research proposal (no more than 3 pages), a copy of a Ph.D. diploma, and a list of publications.

IAP

Open position

The IAP is seeking applications for up to three 2+1 year post-doctoral positions as a major node of the newly funded Simons Collaboration on “Learning the Universe.” The successful candidates will work with the PIs and colleagues to develop and implement cosmological applications of Machine Learning, with a dual focus on cosmological parameter inference and the reconstruction of the initial conditions of our universe from current and upcoming cosmological surveys.

As members of the Simons Collaboration successful candidates will have ample opportunities of exchange with researchers from other participating nodes (Columbia University, Lawrence Berkeley National Lab, Harvard University, Flatiron Institute, Stockholm University, Université de Montreal, Princeton University, Carnegie Mellon University, MPA Garching). Teams dedicated to different aspects of the challenge are currently being set up, offering a multidisciplinary environment for the successful candidates.

Applicants should have obtained a PhD in physics, astronomy or related subject by the time of the appointment. The appointment is for 2+1 years with salary depending on experience and performance. Appointments could start as early as spring 2022, but later start dates are possible. Generous support will be available for travel and research.

The IAP maintains a lively visitor program and hosts regular workshops and conferences throughout the year. The successful candidate will be immersed in an internationally visible research environment with rich intellectual and computational resources, at IAP, and more broadly in the Paris region.

Members of traditionally under-represented groups are especially encouraged to apply. All qualified applicants will receive consideration for employment without regard to race, color, religion, sex, sexual orientation, gender identity, national origin, disability status, protected veteran status, or any other characteristic protected by applicable law.

Applicants should submit a CV (max. 2 pages), a publication list, a short review of previous works (2 pages) and a statement of research interests (2 pages), and up to three letters of recommendation. Application material should be submitted using the web interface. All application materials must be received by November 1st 2021 to ensure full consideration.

Included Benefits:

French national medical/dental insurance, maternity/paternity leave, lunch subsidies, family supplement for children, contribution to offset public transportation costs, pension contributions. School is free in France for all children above 3.
