Postdoctoral fellow in cosmology with galaxy redshift survey

Applications are invited for a postdoctoral research position at the Kavli Institute for the Physics and Mathematics of the Universe (Kavli IPMU), The University of Tokyo. The Postdoctoral Scholar will work primarily with Masahiro Takada (Cosmology), but also have an opportunity to work with members at Kavli IPMU. Opportunities are available for a variety of pursuits in cosmology based on redshift galaxy survey (BAO and redshift-space distortion), including theoretical and numerical studies, joint cosmological analysis of imaging and redshift galaxy survey data, and planning for the Subaru Prime Focus Spectrograph (PFS) project. Kavli IPMU is one of the leading institutions of the Subaru Hyper Suprime-Cam (HSC) Survey and is leading the development of the Subaru PFS project. Furthermore, the institute is a full member of both the SDSS-III and SDSS-IV collaborations, which include the BOSS and eBOSS surveys. This position is supported by the grant “Why does the Universe accelerate? – Exhaustive study and challenges for the future – B03 group” (MEXT Scientific Research on Innovative Area).

Candidates should have a recent PhD in Astrophysics or Physics with a strong background in cosmology. Experience in large-scale structure theory and/or galaxy clustering analysis is highly desirable. Postdoctoral Scholar position is awarded for a minimum of two-year period and can be renewed up to a maximum of 4 years depending on achievements.

The applications should include a CV, research statement, publication list, and at least three letters of recommendation. They should be uploaded at https://academicjobsonline.org/ajo/jobs/6447. Applications will be considered, beginning on Dec 1, 2015, until the position is filled.
