We announce our fifth Dennis Sciama Postdoctoral Research Fellowship
competition at the Institute of Cosmology and Gravitation (ICG) at the
University of Portsmouth aimed at promising early-career researchers in
cosmology. The successful candidate will have demonstrated excellence in

major international collaborations, including LIGO, ESA's Euclid satellite
mission and the Square Kilometre Array (SKA). The University of Portsmouth
