Dear Colleagues,

Applications are invited for two postdoctoral positions in Melbourne,
Australia, to work on the project “Precision Cosmic Expansion in the Era of
Gravitational-Wave Astronomy” with Prof. Chris Blake (Swinburne University)
and A/Prof. Paul Lasky (Monash University). The aim of the project is to
connect cosmological large-scale structure with gravitational-wave
astrophysics. The successful candidates will ideally have experience in one
or more of the following fields: cosmology with galaxy redshift surveys or
transients, gravitational wave astronomy, large-scale structure modelling,
numerical relativity, or cosmological simulations.

One of the positions will be located at Swinburne University with Prof.
Chris Blake, and the other at Monash University with A/Prof. Paul Lasky.
