Experimental Radio Cosmology Postdoctoral Position

Closing Date: February 28, 2018

Please submit the [ online application form ]
ASIAA is accepting applications for a postdoctoral associate for the ASIAA Intensity Mapping (AIM) project with expertise in radio astronomy instrumentation, interferometric data analysis, cosmology, and/or galaxy evolution. The postdoc will work primarily on data obtained with the Yuan-Tseh Lee Array (YTLA) telescope.
The AIM experiment seeks to measure the integrated extragalactic CO emission at redshifts from 1 to 3 on angular scales of arcminutes to tens of arcminutes. The YTLA is a 7-element, hexagonally close-packed interferometer operating at 3mm wavelength, located on Mauna Loa, HI. Deployment of new analog and digital correlator electronics are enabling the intensity mapping survey program. The YTLA will carry-out a multi-year CO intensity mapping survey.
The postdoc will work closely with AIM team members on instrument calibration, observations, and scientific analysis. Experience with radio instrumentation, interferometric data calibration and analysis, power spectrum analysis, cross-correlation analysis, or galaxy evolution is desirable. Willingness to learn new skills and work in a small group on an experimental project is essential.
Development of an independent research program that exploits the YTLA or other facilities is encouraged. ASIAA has access to numerous facilities including ALMA, the SMA, the JCMT, Subaru, and CFHT.
The postdoc will be integrated with the AIM groups in Taipei, Taiwan and Hilo, Hawaii, and may be based in either location.
