Postdoctoral positions in strong-field gravity at Lisbon

GRAVITY GROUP IN LISBON
Postdoctoral positions in GR & HEP

The Gravity Group at Lisbon (GRIT) invites applications for two research, postdoctoral positions, in the area of strong-field gravity at large (including black hole physics, numerical relativity, high-energy physics, etc). These positions are supported by the European Research Council. The appointment is for two years and may be renewed depending on satisfactory performance.

A tentative date for the appointment is 1st January 2016 (with possible variations to be agreed upon with the successful applicant). All candidates must hold a Ph.D. in Physics.

GRIT is part of The Centro Multidisciplinar de Astrofísica (CENTRA), a research centre in Instituto Superior Técnico. More information on the group can be found at

http://centra.tecnico.ulisboa.pt/network/grit/

The gravity group is currently focusing on phenomenology of black hole physics and high energy physics, and is composed of faculty Vitor Cardoso, José Lemos and several postdoctoral Fellows. The group has strong ties to teams in Cambridge (DAMTP), the University of Mississippi, and Rome (“Sapienza”).

The applicant is expected to contribute to the training of students and to the research efforts of the group with a creative research plan. Applicants should send
a curriculum vitae, a list of publications, and a research plan (at most one A4 page). They should also provide the names and contact of 3 referees who can support their application.

The material should be sent to the following e-mail address: jobs_gravity[AT]ist.utl.pt

Please use the subject “GRHEP physics”.

Applications should be received by March 30, 2015. Incomplete applications shall not be considered. Screening of applicants will begin on April 1, 2015 and will continue until the position is filled. For more information please contact Vitor Cardoso (vitor.cardoso[AT]ist.utl.pt).
