Postdoc position at L2IT to work on theoretical and observational aspects of the propagation of gravitational waves at cosmological distances, including tests of the nature of dark energy. The selected candidate will work in close collaboration with and under the supervision of the leader of the “gravitational waves” team at L2IT, Nicola Tamanini.
- Theoretical developments for gravitational wave cosmology
- Analysis of the data collected by the LIGO/Virgo experiments
- Production of cosmological forecasts for LISA (i.e. simulation studies of the expected sensitivity of the future studies of cosmology by the LISA mission).
- Experience with data analysis for gravitational wave observations
- Experience with research in gravitational wave cosmology
- Research experience on gravitational or cosmological theories beyond general relativity
- Ability to work within large international collaborations such as LIGO/Virgo and LISA
The Laboratoire des 2 Infinis - Toulouse (L2IT) is a new laboratory established in 2020 with the objective to conduct fundamental research with novel numerical and theoretical approaches to data analysis. The research of the laboratory is focused on particle physics, gravitational waves and the nuclear equation of state, and it is supported by a complementary development of data analysis and data science methodologies.
The “gravitational waves” group at L2IT conducts research on both theoretical and experimental aspects of gravitational wave science, with a distinct focus on exploiting new ideas connecting theory with observations through data analysis and numerical simulations. The group is part of the LISA consortium and currently has two permanent members, Christelle Buy and Nicola Tamanini. They are both members of the Virgo collaboration.
