Post Doctoral Positions for High Energy Neutrinos
working on the KM3 Neutrino detector
Applications Deadlines: November 2000
We have proposed for the resources for two or three candidates -
two software and one hardware oriented.
Current post docs include: John Jacobsen, Jodi Lamoureaux, Azriel
Goldschmidt, and Ivone Albuquerque.
Ivone Albuquerque's position is funded by the NSF KDI program from the
Computer and Information Sciences and Engineering (CISE) Directorate.
This is part of a larger effort approaching new computational challenges in
cosmology. This will involve collaboration with other KDI participants
and post docs, the KM3 & AMANDA collaboration, and NERSC
(National Energy Research Scientific Computing) center.
The two major areas of effort for this neutrino post doc
are data mining the large data set currently being produced
by the AMANDA detector and the development of a multistep
and interactive simulation of a kilometer scale detector and its technology.
We already have the application from one qualified candidate.
Azriel Goldschmidt's position is more hardware oriented and has been focused
on the development of an optical digital module string deployed
in the South Pole deep ice in the season (1999/2000).
Azriel is working on processing the data and analyzing the results.
- Post-Doctoral Position
working on the Planck Surveyor
satellite to measure CMB anisotropies and determine cosmological parameters.
Application Deadline: December 2001
- Post-Doctoral Position working on
(Cosmic Microwave Background and Analysis Tools) project
to develop software for analysis and visualization of large data sets.
Has a particular emphasis on the CMB data processing and analysis tools.
The first position has been offered to and accepted by Julian Borrill,
who started on September 1st, 1997. This is a position in collaboration
with the NERSC (Scientific Computing Center at LBNL).
A second position was taken by Radec Stompor beginning August 1998.
- Post-Doctoral Position
working on the Galactic Emission Mapping
(GEM) project - position not yet funded
Domingos Barbosa will devote a portion of his time to this project.
Application Deadline: March 1999
