Classes for the third session of the on-line course Gravity! start on Monday 30th January, for six weeks. You may register here on the FutureLearn platform. The course is free and registration is open to everyone.
The aim of the "Probing the early Universe with gravity" workshop, organized by the Paris Center for Cosmological Physics, is to bring together physicists that work on non-standard probes of the very early universe.
The workshop will have sessions dedicated to Primordial Gravitational Waves, to Primordial Black holes and to the connections between cosmology and particle physics.
The candidate is expected to work in George Smoot's team (2006 Nobel Prize in Physics), in the field of Kinetic Inductance Detectors for Astronomy. The main emphasis is on the development for Near Infrared-Visible Astronomy, and the candidate will contribute actively to the development of an ADR-based test bench for detector characterisation at 100 mK or below (including fast readout electronics suitable for spectroscopy, choice of light sources suitable for this task, optics for signal injection, and so on).
