The Geneva Cosmology and Astroparticle Physics group invites applications for a postdoctoral position in Theoretical Cosmology.

The candidate will work with Prof. Lucas Lombriser on tests of gravity and the dark sector with gravitational waves and large-scale structure. Particular emphasis will be put on the development and employment of parametrisation frameworks for GW waveforms and propagation as well the linear, weakly nonlinear, and highly nonlinear regimes of LSS to Solar-System scales.

A PhD degree and relevant research experience are required. The appointment will be for 2+1+1 years with starting date as early as February but no later than October 2018. Postdoctoral salaries are approximately CHF 85'000 p.a. + employer's pensions.

Applications should be submitted by the 15th of December 2017, including CV, publication list, a statement of research interests (1-3 pages), and 3 recommendation letters.
