Detailed Job Description The School of Physics and Astronomy at the Rochester Institute of Technology is seeking an outstanding postdoctoral researcher in astrophysical data analysis with immediate effect. The successful candidate will work as part of the Experimental Cosmology Laboratory with Dr. Michael Zemcov, primarily focused on data pipeline construction and science extraction for the SPHEREx experiment (see http://spherex.caltech.edu). The postdoc is expected to spend most of their time on SPHEREx tasks, but may also be involved in personal or other projects in RIT's Experimental Cosmology Lab (examples include the TIME sub-mm spectrometer and the CIBER-2 sounding rocket). If of interest, RIT permits postdoctoral researchers to be primary instructor on undergraduate Physics and Astronomy courses, which can be negotiated as part of a plan of work.
Required Minimum Qualifications A successful candidate must hold a PhD in astronomy, physics (experiment), or a related field by the starting date of the position. Experience in astronomical instrumentation or data analysis, whether on ground-based, sub-orbital, or orbital, is preferred.
