Position Description:    

*** the list date or deadline for this position has passed and new applications are no longer being accepted. ***

We invite applications for multiple postdoctoral positions in the cosmology and machine learning group at the University of Montreal. The positions are for 3-year terms, with the possibility of an extension (up to 5 years).

All candidates broadly interested in data analysis and machine learning in cosmology are encouraged to apply. Relevant expertise in strong gravitational lensing, LSST data, and machine learning is highly valued.

The candidates will be encouraged to collaborate with members of the LSST Dark Energy Science Collaboration (DESC). They are also strongly encouraged to pursue independent research in broader topics related to machine learning and astrophysical data analysis.

The candidates will work in close collaboration with local members of the group which includes Prof. Yashar Hezaveh and Prof. Laurence Perreault Levasseur and several postdoctoral fellows and graduate students in related research areas. Our group has strong ties with Mila, the world’s largest academic research center in deep learning, which rallies 500 researchers specializing in this field. The group also has strong ties with the Center for Computational Astrophysics at the Flatiron Institute, allowing opportunities for close collaborations with members of the center.

The successful candidates will be encouraged to form new collaborations with other members of the department including Prof. Julie Hlavacek-Larrondo (black holes) and members of IREX, a leading exo-planet institute. In addition, proximity to McGill University allows for more local collaborators.

Applicants should submit a CV, a publication list, and a statement of research and should arrange for three letters of recommendation to be sent through AcademicJobsOnline.

University of Montreal is committed to diversity and equity within the community. We welcome applications from women, aboriginal persons, persons with disabilities, ethnic minorities, persons of minority sexual orientation or gender identity, visible minorities, and others who may contribute to diversification.
