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 cosmic microwave background as participants in the South Pole Telescope (SPT, https://pole.uchicago.edu/) and CMB-S4 (https://cmb-s4.org/) 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 the Materials Science Division and the Center for Nanoscale Materials. Opportunities also exist to collaborate closely with the Cosmological Physics and Advanced Computing group as well as groups at Fermilab and the University of Chicago.
Applicants should have a Ph.D. in physics, astronomy, or a closely related field before the position begins. Review of applications will begin immediately and continue until the positions are filled. Please submit a cover letter, statement of research interests, CV, and three letters of recommendation to be submitted directly to firstname.lastname@example.org. Short-listed applicants will be requested to also submit information to https://www.anl.gov/hr/postdoctoral-applicants (Job ID #407093).
As an equal employment opportunity and affirmative action employer, Argonne National Laboratory is committed to a diverse and inclusive workplace that fosters collaborative scientific discovery and innovation. In support of this commitment, Argonne encourages minorities, women, veterans and individuals with disabilities to apply for employment.

About Argonne National Laboratory
Argonne is a multidisciplinary science and engineering research center, where talented scientists and engineers work together to answer the biggest questions facing humanity, from how to obtain affordable clean energy to protecting ourselves and our environment. Ever since we were born out of the University of Chicago’s work on the Manhattan Project in the 1940s, our goal has been to make an impact — from the atomic to the human to the global scale.
The laboratory works in concert with universities, industry, and other national laboratories on questions and experiments too large for any one institution to do by itself. Through collaborations here and around the world, we strive to discover new ways to develop energy innovations through science, create novel materials molecule-by-molecule, and gain a deeper understanding of our planet, our climate, and the cosmos.
Surrounded by the highest concentration of top-tier research organizations in the world, Argonne leverages its Chicago-area location to lead discovery and to power innovation in a wide range of core scientific capabilities, from high-energy physics and materials science to biology and advanced computer science.
