Postdoctoral Researcher in Large Scale Structure Formation
Durham University - Department of Physics
|Salary:||£32,004 to £38,183|
|Contract Type:||Contract / Temporary|

This is a fixed-term position in Durham University’s Institute for Computational Cosmology (ICC). The post concerns using cosmological hydro-dynamical simulations of galaxy formation to further our understanding of the effects baryonic processes have on the distribution of dark matter.
The successful candidate will develop analyses and models to quantify and describe the reaction of dark matter in galaxy haloes and galaxy cluster haloes to processes involving the baryonic component of forming galaxies, with the aim of providing new tests of the standard LCDM and constraints on alternatives such as warm dark matter.
The post is fixed term for 12 months. It is funded by the STFC research council.
Starting date is 01/02/2017. Exact start date is negotiable.
