Post-Doctoral Fellow Wanted

The Leung Center for Cosmology and Particle Astrophysics (LeCosPA) of National Taiwan University is pleased to announce the availability of several Post-Doctoral Fellow or Assistant Fellow positions in theoretical and experimental cosmology and particle astrophysics, depending on the seniority and qualification of the candidate. Candidates with exceeding qualification will be further offered as LeCosPA Distinguished Junior Fellows with competitive salary.

LeCosPA was founded in 2007 with the aspiration of contributing to cosmology and particle astrophysics in Asia and the world. Its theoretical studies include dark energy, dark matter, inflation, cosmic neutrinos, classical and quantum gravity, black hole physics, etc. Itsexperimental investigations are focusingon three major directions: 1. particle astrophysics, 2. cosmology, 3. laboratory cosmology. In particle astrophysics, the main thrust is in the detection of ultra-high energy cosmic neutrinos and cosmic rays via ANITA, ARA and other projects in Antarctica, and the TAROGE Array in Taiwan. In cosmology, we have joined the AliCPT Telescope in Tibet to search for CMB polarizations and the primordial gravitational waves. In laboratory cosmology the main effort is the AnaBHEL experiment, using high-intensity lasers to create tabletop analog black holes to investigate the information loss paradox. Experimentalists with a background in CMB data analysis or laser-plasmascience and technology are especially encouraged to apply.

These positions are available on September 1, 2020. Interested applicant should submit his/her application to AcademicJobsOnline (PD#14689) with curriculum vitae, research statement, publication list and three letters of recommendation before December 1, 2019
