CMB Opportunities

We are always interested in having students work with us. Programs available include both short-term and longer-term positions (six months or more).

Argonne’s close relationship with the University of Chicago, as well as a daily shuttle service between our two campuses, can make these opportunities particularly attractive for UChicago students.

*The U.S. Department of Energy sponsors opportunities for students. Application deadlines for these programs occur biannually in the spring and fall.

Postdoctoral Appointee Position

The High Energy Physics division at Argonne National Laboratory invites applications for postdoctoral research positions in the Experimental Cosmology group. Members of our group study the CMB as participants in the South Pole Telescope (SPT) and CMB-S4 collaborations. Successful applicants will have opportunities for cosmological analysis of data from the SPT-3G receiver as well as in technology development for CMB-S4. They will have access to multiple test and fabrication facilities at Argonne, the latter involving close collaboration with Argonne’s Materials Science division and the Center for Nanoscale Materials, a U.S. Department of Energy Office of Science user facility. Opportunities also exist to collaborate closely with Argonne’s Cosmological Physics and Advanced Computing group and groups at Fermi National Accelerator Laboratory and the University of Chicago. Additional information and details on how to apply are available online. Reference requisition number 407093.
