Research Assistant position in "Modelling Tidal Fields and Intrinsic Alignments in Cosmology"
|Sub Research Field:
The applicant will develop computer simulations of the formation and evolution of nonlinear structure of the Universe. Specifically, the goal will be to create and analyse simulations that mimic a large-scale tidal field to study its role in the formation of dark matter halos and in setting their internal properties.
The results will then be applied to develop advanced models for the alignment in the shape of
observed galaxies, which could lead to a more accurate modelling of the gravitational lensing and the derived cosmological constraints.
