ONE postdoctoral contract EPI CONSOLIDER II 2013

The IAC (Tenerife, Spain) invites applications for ONE postdoctoral contract within the framework of the project entitled “EPI: EXPLORING THE PHYSICS OF INFLATION”, with reference CSD2010-00064 (see http://www.epi-consolider.es ), whose Principal Investigator is Dr. Enrique Martínez González.  One of its nodes is the IAC (Cosmic Microwave Background), where the Principal Investigator is Dr. José Alberto Rubiño Martín.

Tasks: The tasks for this position are divided in two projects: the PLANCK satellite and the QUIJOTE-CMB experiment. The detailed list of activities is:

  • QUIJOTE. The post-doc will participate in the data analysis of the QUIJOTE MFI instrument (11-20GHz), as well as in the commissioning phase and first observations with the QUIJOTE TGI instrument (30GHz). The main responsibility will be the production and characterization of the daily polarization data; development and application of map-making algorithms; the extraction and characterization of the astrophysical components (with special emphasis in the Galactic anomalous microwave emission); the power spectrum estimation and  the cosmological implications.
  • PLANCK. The successful candidate is expected to work in any of the following research lines: study of polarised foregrounds; impact of primordial magnetic fields in the maps; cosmology with galaxy clusters.
  • Combined analysis of QUIJOTE and PLANCK. The characterization of the galactic astrophysical components which will be present in the QUIJOTE and Planck maps, namely synchrotron, free-free, thermal dust and anomalous emission.
