Research Fellow In Cmb Polarisation

Private Company - Parkville, VIC

Education, Childcare & Training
Source: uWorkin


Division/Faculty: Faculty of Science

Department/School: School of Physics

Salary: $73,669 - $99,964 (Level A) + 9.5% super

About the role:

This full-time fixed term position will provide the opportunity for a highly motivated postdoctoral researcher to take a major role in two experiments, the Simons Array and SPT-3G, which are designed to make precise measurements of the polarisation of the cosmic microwave background. These B-modes are a promising probe of the neutrino masses (through gravitational lensing on small angular scales), inflation (through gravitational waves on large angular scales), and more exotic physics such as cosmic birefringence.

The successful applicant will collaborate with international co-Investigators on the Simons Array and South Pole Telescope (SPT) projects. A fraction of the time will be available for independent research projects.

The School of Physics (the School) is a partner in the ARC Centres of Excellence ASTRO-3D, OzGrav and Dark Matter Particle Physics, and provides a vibrant collaborative environment. The School collaborates with researchers around the globe to address some of the most fundamental problems today in astro- and particle physics. In addition to the SPT, the School works on the Murchison Widefield Array radio telescope in Western Australia. The School is also actively involved in the LHC at CERN, with substantial expertise in neutrino and ‘Beyond the standard model’ physics. The School is a partner on the LIGO gravitational wave experiment.

This position will be based at the University of Melbourne Parkville campus and work under the supervision of the Chief Investigator (CI).

About you:

  • A PhD or equivalent in Astrophysics or a related area
  • Expertise in high performance computing and handling large datasets, and experience with python, C, and related languages
  • Expertise in analysis of CMB polarisation data
  • Experience in determining cosmological constraints
  • Research interests in cosmology and extragalactic astrophysics
  • Demonstrated ability to engage with relevant professional and industry bodies and stakeholders to foster collaborative partnerships
  • Excellent interpersonal and both written and oral communication skills in English 
  • Demonstrated excellent organisational skills to meet deadlines and bring projects to a timely completion
