The post is for up to three years, starting 1st OCTOBER 2010 (or earlier by agreement).

PERSONAL STFC FELLOWSHIPS AND OTHER POSTDOCTORAL FELLOWSHIPS

STFC ADVANCED FELLOWSHIPS
Five-year personal research fellowships for candidates of any nationality are offered by the Science & Technology Facilities Council (STFC, the UK research council that supports astronomy and cosmology), with a closing date of 13th October 2010. These are open to outstanding post-doctoral researchers of any nationality. See http://www.scitech.ac.uk/Funding+and+Grants/509.aspx for further details.

PhD Studentships 2009

The Institute of Cosmology & Gravitation at the University of Portsmouth is one of the leading cosmology groups in the UK. We are a member of the Dark Energy Survey (DES), the Sloan Digital Sky Survey (SDSS-III), the UK Low Frequency Array Consortium (LOFAR-UK), COSMOS (the UK cosmology supercomputer consortium), and SEPnet (South-East Physics Network) Astrophysics.

PhD studentships starting in 2009 will be available for research in:

  • Galaxy Surveys
  • Galaxy Evolution
  • Stellar Populations
  • Dark Energy
  • Structure Formation
  • The Early Universe

SEPNet Fellowship (leading to a permanent academic position)

The Institute of Cosmology & Gravitation (ICG) wishes to appoint a Research Fellow/ Lecturer with an outstanding research record in cosmology and astrophysics, which complements existing research areas within the group. For the first five years the post is funded as a fellowship by the SEPNet consortium (South East Physics Network), and thereafter becomes a permanent university lectureship. The SEPNet Astrophysics collaboration consists of the universities of Portsmouth, Southampton, Oxford, Sussex, Kent and QM London (see http://www.sepnet.ac.uk/).

Postdoctoral Researchers in Cosmology

The Institute of Cosmology & Gravitation (ICG) intends to appoint three postdoctoral researchers in observational and theoretical cosmology. A PhD degree and relevant research experience are required. The posts are for up to three years, starting on 1st OCTOBER 2009 (or earlier by agreement).

The researchers will work on projects funded by grants from the Science and Technology Facilities Council and the European Research Council. The projects are:
(1) Cosmological perturbations and the origin of structure in the early universe, RTEC1139 (David Wands)
(2) Linking observations and theories of dark energy, RTEC1138 (Will Percival)
(3) Modified gravity as an alternative to dark energy, RTEC1137 (Kazuya Koyama)
