Postdoctoral position in loop quantum gravity at UNAM, Morelia, Mexico
The Quantum Gravity Group of the Center for Mathematical Sciences (Centro de Ciencias Matemáticas, CCM) of the National Autonomous University of Mexico (UNAM) in Morelia is inviting applications for a Postdoctoral fellowship to start on September 1st 2013. (The date is possibly flexible.) The fellowship is for an initial duration of one year, and extensible for a second year. We expect the candidate to collaborate with the members of the group in non-perturbative aspect of quantum gravity, aspects of quantum field theory on curved spacetime or lated topics.
The quantum gravity group consists of three permanent members, A. Corichi, R. Oeckl and J.A. Zapata, a visiting faculty member, D. Colosi, a posdoctoral fellow (S. Rastgoo) and 5 PhD students.
The CCM (http://www.matmor.unam.mx) has 21 faculty members working in the following areas (http://www.matmor.unam.mx/en/research): Algebra, Algebraic Geometry, Combinatorics, Differential Equations, Dynamical Systems, Foundations of Quantum Field Theory, Group Theory, Number Theory, Set Theory, Topology, Representation Theory, Quantum Gravity. Being part of UNAM, we have access to reasonable computer and library facilities. We also share a building with UNAM’s Center for Astrophysics and Radioastronomy. Nearby is the Institute for Physics and Mathematics of the local State University (http://www.ifm.umich.mx), with another 20 faculty members. Morelia is a moderate sized city with fair climate and a rich cultural life.
In order to be considered, we request a CV, research statement and 3 reference letters to be submitted before January 1st 2013, to the following address: corichi[AT]matmor.unam.mx
