The University of Portsmouth is an ambitious institution with a track record of success. One of only four universities in the south east of England to achieve a Gold rating in the Teaching Excellence Framework and ranked in the top 150 in the Times Higher Young University World Rankings.

The Institute of Cosmology and Gravitation (ICG) at the University of Portsmouth invites applications at the level of professor to strengthen its existing leadership in key astronomical surveys and to take a leading role in growing a university-wide initiative in the space sector and instrumentation. This includes a new CubeSat program.

The ICG is a world-leading research institute in cosmology, gravitation and astrophysics. In REF2014, 96% of our research outputs were judged internationally excellent or world-leading. We encourage applications from scientists with an excellent record of high quality research publications related to observational and/or survey cosmology, as well as strong evidence of impact (innovation and/or public engagement) and external grant funding (including personal research fellowships).

The ICG values a diverse workforce and welcomes applications from all sections of the community, particularly under-represented groups in science. The ICG and the University of Portsmouth hold Athena SWAN bronze awards, which shows our commitment to introducing organisational and cultural practices that promote gender equality in science and create a better working environment for all researchers, regardless of gender identity.

The ICG consists of 17 academic staff, 17 postdoctoral researchers and around 30 PhD students, and has an active international visitors programme. Portsmouth is a member of the Sloan Digital Sky Survey (SDSS), the Dark Energy Survey (DES), the Large Synoptic Survey Telescope (LSST), the Dark Energy Spectroscopic Instrument (DESI), ESA’s Euclid satellite mission, the Square Kilometre Array (SKA), the Laser Interferometer Gravitational Wave Observatory (LIGO), the Laser Interferometer Space Antenna (LISA), the Gravitational Wave Optical Transient Observer (GOTO), and other international collaborations. The University of Portsmouth is a member of the South-East Physics Network (SEPnet) and hosts the 3704-core SCIAMA supercomputer. More information is available at http://www.icg.port.ac.uk/
