CosKASI PhD program (application for 2016 due by Oct 12)

  • Dr. Shafieloo is appointed as UST professor on Oct 2nd. CosKASI has three faculties who are going to recruit PhD students in 2016; Prof. Ki Young Choi (Dark Matter), Prof. Arman Shafieloo (Dark Energy, Inflation), Prof. Yong-Seon Song (Large Scale Structure of the Universe). We support PhD students full scholarship including tuition fee and living expenses. If you are interested in, please feel free contacting each faculty.

Participation in DESI (Dark Energy Spectrocopy Instrument)

The Dark Energy Spectroscopic Instrument (DESI) will measure the effect of dark energy on the expansion of the universe. It will obtain optical spectra for tens of millions of galaxies and quasars, constructing a 3-dimensional map spanning the nearby universe to 10 billion light years.

DESI will be conducted on the Mayall 4-meter telescope at Kitt Peak National Observatory starting in 2018. DESI is supported by the Department of Energy Office of Science to perform this Stage IV dark energy measurement using baryon acoustic oscillations and other techniques that rely on spectroscopic measurements.

Cosmology group at KASI plans to take part in DESI as an associated member institute. We provide an apportunity for young researchers to meet challenges for next decades.
