Applications are invited for two postdoctoral research fellow positions in the observational cosmology research group led by Dr Stephen Appleby at the Asia-Pacific Center for Theoretical Physics (APCTP), Pohang, South Korea.

APCTP (www.apctp.org), founded in 1996, is an international organization dedicated to excellence in research and the training of young scientists in the Asia-Pacific region. APCTP offers a unique research environment incorporating a large diversity of fields (cosmology, particle physics, statistical physics, string theory). Successful applicants will have a chance to interact with various groups and broaden their personal research program. Pohang is a pleasant coastal city in South Korea with links to Seoul and Daejeon.

Successful applicants will be expected to carry out research in cosmology, broadly defined. Research interests of the group include large scale structure, dark energy, modified gravity, dark matter, and late time observational cosmology. Prior experience with Fortran or C is an advantage but not required. A PhD in astronomy, cosmology or related field is a prerequisite.

Interested applicants should submit a cover letter, curriculum vitae, publication list, short research statement (including previous achievements and future proposal) and two letters of recommendation via academic jobs online. The appointments will be initially for one year, with extension of up to two additional years. The application deadline is 06/11/2020, and the start date is preferably Q1/Q2 2021 (negotiable).
