There exists a wide range of opportunities to participate in our group at the postdoctoral level. For all opportunities below, please contact one of the ACL faculty for further information.
1) Arizona Cosmology Postdoc:
Our lab hosts a postdoctoral program that aims at enabling its members to develop a visible, independent science profile. Postdocs develop their independent research plan with advice and suggestions from faculty, including their direct postdoctoral advisor. The details of the research program is at the discretion of the postdocs, but should be connected to the broad theme of cosmological data analysis of ongoing and future surveys (DES, DESI, LSST, WFIRST, SPHEREx). The program strives to facilitate a healthy mix of collaborative projects with ACL faculty, students, other postdocs, work in large science collaborations and individual research.
2) External Fellowships:
We are happy to discuss external fellowship applications (NASA, NSF, International Programs) that can be taken to Steward Observatory directly or to NSF's OIR lab, which is across the street. In case of aligned research interests our lab will enable access to Super-Computing and other resources, such as cosmological data sets, simulations, analysis software.
3) Steward Observatory Fellowships:
Steward Observatory offers a range of Prize Fellowships (Bok, Strittmatter, Arizona-KASI, Steward Theory Prize) that are open to applicants from all fields of astronomy, including cosmology.
For grad students interested in joining our lab please apply to a University of Arizona graduate student program (astronomy, physics, or related field). If you are accepted into the program we are happy to discuss possible projects at the interface of cosmological observations, modeling and data analysis, and astrophysics theory.
Grad students in our lab have access to the latest data sets from cosmological surveys, local and national Super-Computing resources, and travel funding to conferences and collaboration meetings.
Undergraduate students who are enrolled at the University of Arizona are welcome to attend our weekly TACOS (Tuesday Astrophysics and COSmology) meeting, participate in our hack sessions, and also to start a longer term research project within our group.
Please contact one of the faculty for more information.
