Postdoctoral positions in gravity/cosmology/astrophysics at Fudan University

The gravity/cosmology/astrophysics group at Fudan University (Shanghai, China) has a few postdoctoral positions to fill as soon as possible. Graduate students who expect to receive soon the Doctoral Degree are also encouraged to apply. Applications from candidates working in any research area of gravity, cosmology, high energy astrophysics, and quantum field theory will be considered, but preference may be given to the ones with experience/interest in the following topics:

– Gravitational collapse (broadly defined, including both analytical and numerical approaches)
– Stability of black holes and quasi-normal modes
– QPOs in black hole systems
– Phenomenology of CMBR (including polarization and non-gaussianities)
– Analysis of dark matter (from both theoretical and phenomenological side)

The group currently consists of 3 faculty (Cosimo Bambi, Antonino Marciano, Leonardo Modesto), 4 postdocs (Stefano Giaccari, Daniele Malafarina, Leslaw Rachwal, Naoki Tsukamoto), and several graduate and undergraduate students. Interested candidates should send their CV (including, among other things, date of birth, contact details of 2-3 referees, and possible starting date), short statement of research interests and/or experience, and publication list to:

Ms. Juan Wang
E-mail: wangjuan[AT]fudan.edu.cn

Please arrange also 2-3 recommendation letters to be sent separately to the same email address.

Applications received by December 31 will receive full consideration.

Enquires can be sent to Cosimo Bambi (bambi[AT]fudan.edu.cn), Antonino Marciano (marciano[AT]fudan.edu.cn), or Leonardo Modesto (lmodesto[AT]fudan.edu.cn).

Further details:
Shanghai is the most international city in China. It has been recently developing as a forefront for scientific research in Asia, and will continue in the next years. Fudan University is one of the most selective and prestigious universities in China. The group joins the effort of founding a new theoretical physics center at Fudan, led by Prof. Yong-Shi Wu, who holds a joint position as Distinguished Professor at the University of Utah in the United States and as a Special Appointed Professor of Physics at Fudan.
Housing: Fudan can provide apartments of 50-80 square meters inside the campus at very convenient rental rates.
