Position Description:    

Description: The LAPTh (CNRS/USMB) invites expressions of interest for a post-doctoral researcher position in the field of theoretical cosmology. This position is dedicated to advancing research in line intensity mapping (LIM) as a cosmological probe and leveraging its synergies with other probes (such as galaxy clustering and CMB lensing). Therefore, we seek candidates with expertise in analysis of N-body and hydro simulations, semi-analytic models of galaxy formation, and application of machine learning techniques to cosmological data.

The successful candidate will join the vibrant cosmology and astroparticle group at LAPTh under the supervision of Professor Azadeh Moradinezhad. He/She would also benefit from the rich scientific interactions between the institutions in the region, including University of Geneva and CERN. The appointed researcher will have access to computing facilities of the LAPTh and the CNRS and will be provided a travel budget.

The position is available for an initial period of 2 years, with the possibility of extension by an additional year based on performance and funding availability. The salary will be commensurate with experience and is set by the CNRS salary ladder. A Ph.D. (with a thesis in Cosmology or Astrophysics) is required prior to the start of the appointment.

Application Procedure: Expressions of interest should be sent in English and via AcademicJobsOnline, prior to January 5th - 2024. Please include a cover letter, CV, list of publications, a statement of research accomplishments and plans (up to 4 pages) and arrange for 3 letters of recommendation. For further questions about the opening, please contact Professor Moradinezhad directly.

About LAPTh: LAPTh is a mixed research unit (UMR) of the CNRS and the Université Savoie Mont Blanc (USMB). The scientific areas are represented by three broad activities grouped into cosmology and astroparticle, particle physics, and mathematical physics. The cosmology and astroparticle group has diverse research activities including cosmic large-scale structure, early Universe physics, cosmic ray propagation and dark matter in general, gamma ray bursts and astrophysical probes of neutrinos.
