We will have a STFC-funded 3-year Research Assistant/Associate position (start date in 2022) available to work on large-scale structure with Dr Cora Uhlemann (PI) and Dr Joachim Harnois-Deraps (Co-I). The official advertisement can be found on the Newcastle University Job Portal link, the deadline is May 1st, 2022.
The project aims at harnessing the power of the large-scale structure as a laboratory for fundamental physics. Deriving the most competitive constraints will require us to harvest additional information beyond standard two-point statistics from galaxy surveys like Euclid. You will work on non-Gaussian statistics that dissect different density environments to unlock additional information on dark energy, neutrinos and galaxy bias by using galaxy clustering and weak lensing.
You will build on your experience in modelling nonlinear effects for galaxy clustering or weak lensing and/or the analysis of galaxy survey data. Within the project, you will perform theoretical modelling and data analysis and disseminate your work through publications and presentations at scientific meetings. You will become a member of a dedicated local research group, contributing to the research planning and implementation and join the international Euclid consortium. In addition to project-specific activities, you will be encouraged to pursue your own independent research and training. Furthermore, you may engage in outreach activities, particularly those designed to increase accessibility and inclusion to science.
