Scientific Researcher Caltech is a world-renowned science and engineering institute that marshals some of the world’s brightest minds and most innovative tools to address fundamental scientific questions. We thrive on finding and cultivating talented people who are passionate about what they do. Join us and be a part of the diverse Caltech community. Job Summary The Caltech experimental cosmology group seeks a Scientific Researcher to advance CMB observations and technology for BICEP Array and CMB-S4. The BICEP-Keck program is producing deep CMB polarization measurements and placing field-leading constraints on Inflationary B-mode polarization. The newest BICEP Array stage of the program is funded and currently in implementation. When fully fielded, BICEP Array will operate over 30,000 detectors in 6 frequency bands, deploying and observing over the next 5 years from the South Pole. The project has begun joint observations and analysis with the 10m South Pole Telescope to improve measurements of gravitational lensing that are essential for stronger constraints on Inflationary physics. Candidates will play a leading role in designing, testing, fielding, and analyzing data from the new BICEP Array receivers. The highest frequency receiver will demonstrate new TKID technology being developed at Caltech/JPL for large, highly-multiplexed CMB arrays. Candidates may choose to join local efforts towards the CMB-S4 project, including developing new detector arrays. The successful applicant will have access to data accumulated to date from the BICEP-Keck program, as well as access to collaborative programs with the South Pole telescope covering a wide range of scientific topics. Job Duties Play a leading role in designing, testing, fielding, and analyzing data from the new BICEP Array receivers. Candidates may choose to join local efforts towards the CMB-S4 project, including developing new detector arrays. Basic Qualifications PhD in Physics or Astronomy 5 plus years of CMB research beyond a PhD. Required Documents Resume
