The Institute of Cosmology and Gravitation (ICG) at the University of
Portsmouth invites applications for a senior lectureship in
astrophysics, cosmology and gravitation. We are seeking applicants
whose expertise will enhance and extend our existing areas of
research, in topics including theoretical studies in cosmology and
gravitation, and exploitation of the next generation of astronomical
observatories such as the European Extremely Large Telescope and the
James Webb Space Telescope.
We encourage applications from scientists with a record of
high-quality research publications, as well as evidence of impact
(innovation and/or public engagement) and external grant funding
(which may include research fellowships). We particularly encourage
applications from traditionally under-represented groups in physics.
The ICG and the University of Portsmouth hold Athena SWAN bronze
awards, demonstrating a commitment to organisational and cultural
practices that promote gender equality and create a better working
environment for women and men.
The ICG is home to 16 academic staff, 17 postdoctoral researchers and
over 30 PhD students, and has an active international visitors
programme. Portsmouth is a member of the Sloan Digital Sky Survey
(SDSS-IV), the Dark Energy Survey (DES), the Dark Energy Spectroscopic
Instrument (DESI), the Large Synoptic Survey Telescope (LSST), and the
Gravitational-wave Observatory (LIGO) science collaboration, with
involvement in several other major international collaborations,
including ESA's Euclid satellite mission and the Square Kilometre
Array (SKA). The University of Portsmouth is a member of the
South-East Physics Network (SEPnet) and hosts the SCIAMA supercomputer
including a new upgrade with 896 cores and 8.4 TB distributed memory.
