The Berkeley Center for Cosmological Physics (BCCP) and Theoretical Astrophysics Center (TAC) at the University of California, Berkeley, invites applications for BCCP and TAC Postdoctoral Fellows, with an anticipated start date in summer or fall 2022. BCCP Fellows are expected to carry out independent research on topics of their choosing in cosmology. TAC Fellows can pursue research in any area of theoretical astrophysics. Fellows positions will be for two years with the possibility of a one-year extension. Applicants responding to this ad will also be considered for grant-supported postdoctoral positions with BCCP and TAC members.

Note: If you wish to apply for only the BCCP or only the TAC fellowship, please indicate in your comments.

The Fellows will have the opportunity to interact and work with the broad spectrum of theoretical astrophysics and cosmology researchers in the Berkeley Astronomy and Physics Departments, and at the Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory (LBNL). The experimental and observational programs at Berkeley include supernovae, black holes, extra-galactic astronomy, galaxy clustering, weak lensing and cosmic microwave background, and multi-messenger astrophysics including gravity waves, in addition to a broad theoretical astrophysics and cosmology research program. The Fellows will also find a rich data-science environment at UC Berkeley and LBNL, with world-expert researchers in both computer science/statistics and domain science aspects of this emerging field. Information on the BCCP's current activities and membership may be found at the BCCP's website: bccp.berkeley.edu.

Basic qualifications: All Ph.D. (or equivalent) degree requirements except the dissertation at the time of application.

Additional qualifications: Ph.D. (or equivalent) degree by the start date.

Salary range: $60,000-$70,000

Diversity Statement: BCCP is interested in candidates who will contribute to the diversity and equal opportunity in higher education through their research.

Family friendly statement: UC Berkeley has an excellent benefits package as well as a number of policies and programs to support employees as they balance work and family.
