Postdoctoral position(s) in loop quantum gravity at LSU

The theoretical relativity group expects to have, contingent on funding, openings for postdoctoral or senior postdoctoral researchers working in loop quantum gravity starting September 2011. The initial appointment will be for one year and is expected to be renewed for another one or two years subject to satisfactory progress and availability of funds. The core relativity group at LSU consists of Peter Diener, Kristina Giesel, Jorge Pullin, Parampreet Singh, four postdocs and several graduate students. In addition to that LSU hosts a strong experimental gravity group with activity in LIGO, whose Livingston site is 30 miles away from Baton Rouge. LSU is also host to the Center for Computation & Technology (CCT), a multidisciplinary research center which includes computational groups in several areas of science, engineering, and the humanities. Several researchers in the relativity group have joint appointments at CCT.

Salary is commensurate with qualifications and experience. An offer of employment is contingent on a satisfactory pre-employment background check. Application deadline is December 15th , 2010 or until a candidate is selected.
