Job Information

Enrique Martinez-Gonzalez is CSIC Research Professor at the Instituto de Fisica de Cantabria (IFCA) in Santander (Spain) where he is the director and also responsible for the research line “Observational Cosmology and Instrumentation”. His main field of research is Cosmology, more specifically Cosmic Microwave Background (CMB), large scale structure (LSS) of the Universe and galaxy formation. In the last 10 years he has focused in the development of CMB experiments and instrumentation as well as data analysis and theoretical implications of CMB data sets. Among his most relevant contributions it can be mentioned, on the one hand, the coordination of the activities to develop the Back-end Modules of the radiometers at 30 and 44 GHz of Planck and the scientific exploitation of the data. He is Co-I of the Planck-LFI, Planck Scientist, coordinator of the non-Gaussianity working group and member of the Planck-LFI core team. On the other hand, he belongs to the management board of QUIJOTE, an experiment aimed at measuring both, the Galactic polarized emission and the CMB polarization. He also participates in the project J-PAS, a galaxy survey covering 8000 square degrees up to redshift 1 with the main objective of measuring the “baryonic acoustic oscillations”, and in the Euclid ESA mission with the primary goal to understand the dark energy and dark matter of the Universe. He has published about 200 papers in refereed journals. He has been the PI of 5 international projects and 11 national projects. To be emphasised, coordinator of the first European network on the CMB funded by the Human Capital and Mobility Program of the EC and coordinator of the project of excellence “Exploring the Physics of Inflation” of the Spanish Consolider Ingenio-2010 program.
