Postdoctoral position in Theoretical Physics (Gravitation, Field Theory) at UNAM

The department of Gravitation and Field Theory at the Institute for Nuclear Sciences of UNAM, offers twice a year the possibility of postdoctoral fellowships for young researchers in its fields of study. The positions are for one year, renewable for a second one, depending upon funding and performance, and they carry a competitive monthly stipend, as well as basic health insurance for the postdoctoral fellow and his/her dependents. The positions are open to researchers from any part of the world, independently of ethnicity, religion and gender.

The department lines of research include classical and quantum aspects of gravitation, numerical relativity, cosmology, quantum field theory, lattice QCD, various aspects of mathematical physics, biophysics, and complex systems. The permanent members are Miguel Alcubierre, Wolfgang Bietenholz, Chryssomalis Chryssomalakos, Jemal Guven, Darío Núñez, Hernando Quevedo, Marcos Rosenbaum, Marcelo Salgado, Christopher Stephens, Daniel Sudarsky, Roberto Sussman, and Alexander Turbiner — there is also a number of postdoctoral fellows and graduate students.

Applications are reviewed in late February, for positions starting in September of the same year, and in late June, starting in March of next year. The successful candidates should have received a PhD in Physics, or closely related fields, no longer than 3 years before the starting date of the position, and should be no older than 36 when starting the position. We strongly encourage interested persons to apply throughout the year, by sending their cv, a research plan, and three letters of recommendation to chryss[AT]nucleares.unam.mx.
