Hiring Research Assistant in Astronomy & Astrophysics

We are seeking a postbac (post-baccalaureate) Research Assistant who will work under the supervision of an observational astronomer and a theoretical physicist. The work will involve both astronomical observation and simulation. The observational part entails modeling the direction-dependent errors of LOFAR (a radio telescope) in observing the 21-cm signal coming from the epoch of reionization of the universe (almost 12 billion years ago). The simulation part entails simulating cosmological hydrogen using 21cmFAST, a semi-numerical code.

The Astrophysics RA will work jointly at COALab of the Department of Physical Sciences and the ComPAs wing of the Center for Computational and Data Sciences (CCDS).

Eligibility: The applicants must have finished undergrad in physics, mathematics, computer science, or a related engineering field and must not be doing any other full-time job at the moment of the application.

Deadline: 15 January 2024
