The High Energy Astrophysics group https://cass.ucsd.edu/index.php/faculty:Sboggs invites applications for a postdoctoral position on the Compton Spectrometer and Imager (COSI) satellite project. COSI is an all-sky gamma-ray survey telescope designed to probe the origins of Galactic positrons, reveal sites of ongoing element formation in the Galaxy, use gamma-ray polarimetry to gain insight into extreme environments, and explore the physics of multi-messenger events. This position will include instrument development and calibration, development and implementation of data analysis techniques unique to Compton telescopes, and scientific analysis in preparation for the mission. Postdoctoral Scholars will also assist in mentoring graduate and undergraduate students and with outreach and public engagement activities.
