The Berkeley Center for Cosmological Physics (BCCP) at the University of California, Berkeley, invites applications for the BCCP Postdoctoral Fellowship, starting in the summer or fall of 2014. The BCCP Fellows are expected to carry out independent research on topics of their choosing in cosmology. We are especially encouraging applications in the intersection area between cosmology, fundamental physics and astrophysics. The position is for three years. In addition to being considered for the BCCP Fellowship, applicants will also be considered for grant-supported postdoctoral positions with BCCP members. Information on the BCCP's current activities and membership may be found at the BCCP's website: bccp.berkeley.edu.

Successful candidates will have the opportunity to interact and work with the broad spectrum of researchers in the Berkeley Astronomy and Physics Departments, and at the Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory. The experimental and theoretical cosmology programs at Berkeley include supernovae, galaxy clustering, weak lensing and CMB.

Candidates should have obtained their Ph.D. or equivalent in physics, astrophysics or a related field before their appointment start date. The total duration of an individual's postdoctoral service may not exceed five years, including postdoctoral service at other institutions.

Starting salary is $55,000 or commensurate with experience.
