Job Opportunities

Physicist for cross-correlation analysis of cosmological objects and absorption spectra

Description

The person to be hired will be generalizing a numerical code to compute
cross-correlations of objects with quasar absorption line spectra that
include mainly the Lyman alpha line of hydrogen from the intergalactic
medium but also several metal absorption lines, using data from surveys
similar to the Baryon Oscillation Spectroscopic Survey. The applicant is
required to have a Master degree in Physics and experience in data analysis.

The applicant should be able to start working on the project in October,
and the contract duration will be 15 weeks.
