The Sub-millimiter Galaxies Magnification Bias: an underexploited cosmological probe. (SMGsMagBias)
In the Department of Physics at the University of Oviedo we are establishing a task force group to focus on the statistical analysis of the high-z Herschel sources and their Magnification Bias produced by large scale structure at lower redshift. In particular, our main objectives are:
- Updating the astrophysical assumptions needed for the theoretical background (Cross-correlation Halo model)
- Constraining the main cosmological parameters from a “novel” independent LSS observable: the SMGs Magnification Bias.
- Studying the evolution of the LSS mass properties thanks to the SMGs Magnification Bias.
- Developing advance ML techniques to achieve the main Objectives.
Applications are invited for a 24 months pre-doctoral research position. The project will be carried out in collaboration with Dr. Laura Bonavera (PI), Dr. Joaquin Gonzalez-Nuevo (PI), Prof. Luigi Toffolatti and Prof. Francisco Argueso.
Please notice that due to the restricted funds we can only offer a 25 hours/week contract implying a gross monthly salary of ~1,200 euros.
The starting date of the post is Jan 2020 and the deadline for applications is Nov 22th 2019. The official call can be found here: http://www.uniovi.es/ gobiernoservicios/rrhh/convocatorias/investigacion.
Interested applicants are encouraged to contact Dr. Laura Bonavera (email@example.com) or Dr. Joaquin Gonzalez-Nuevo (firstname.lastname@example.org) as soon as possible.
