The Institute for Computational Cosmology (ICC)
is a leading international
centre for research into the origin and evolution of the Universe at Durham University
We address some of the most fundamental questions in science:
What were the first objects in the Universe? How do galaxies form?
What is the nature of the dark matter and dark energy? Where does the
large-scale structure of the universe come from? What is the fate of
|Postdoctoral positions in extragalactic astronomy and cosmology
We invite applications for postdoctoral positions within the broad area of extragalactic astronomy and cosmology at Durham University. We currently have several open postdoctoral positions, including:
We also anticipate other positions becoming available before the application deadline. Please submit all application documents to the Academic Jobs Online website. To ensure full consideration complete applications, including references, need to be received by 14th December 2020.
- Galactic Astronomy / Near-Field cosmology [STFC/Leverhulme Trust funded] The successful candidate will use observational data and/or cosmological simulations to study the Milky Way halo. Contact Dr. Alis Deason for more details.
- Dark matter; galaxy formation; Galactic dynamics; cosmological simulations; strong gravitational lensing. Funded by the ERC. Contact Prof. Carlos Frenk.
The ICC is part of the Ogden Centre for Fundamental Physics and interacts closely with the Centre for Extragalactic Astronomy and the Centre for Advanced Instrumentation in the Department of Physics.
We offer both PhD and Msc postgraduate studentships.
|In November 2016, the ICC moved into the brand new Ogden Centre for Fundamental Physics building, designed by the world renowned Studio Daniel Libeskind. The new building now houses all three astronomy groups in the Department of Physics, including the Centre for Advanced Instrumentation and the Centre for Extragalactic Astronomy, as well as the Institute for Computational Cosmology.
