COMBAT Postdoctoral Position

The Smoot Astrophysics Group is collaborating on and engaged in the development of the COMBAT (Cosmic Microwave Background and Analysis Tools) project to develop software forge data sets. This project has a particular emphasis on the CMB data processing and analysis software. As part of that effort we are seeking postdoctoral fellows.

We plan an opening for a Post Doctoral Research Physicist beginning Fall of 1997. The position is in support of the physics and software development for the CMB data analysis.

The position is aimed at improving our science goals and potential primarily through participation in the development of software. In particular, the focus is on the development of the CMB pipeline and at first on the large scale eignevalue problem. The CMB pipeline is discussed more under software projects..

All outstanding candidates will be considered. A candidate with a background in physics and computer science is highly desired.
