The Department of Physics and Astronomy at Louisiana State University invites applications for two faculty positions in physics starting in the fall of 2010. Preference will be given to candidates working in loop quantum gravity.
The faculty in the gravity theory group at LSU consists of Gabrielle Allen, Peter Diener, Robert O’Connell, Jorge Pullin, Erik Schnetter and Edward Seidel (on leave at the National Science Foundation). There is also a quantum information technology group at LSU led by Jonathan Dowling, a theoretical astrophysics group led by Juhan Frank and Joel Tohline, and an experimental gravity group led by Joe Giaime, Gabriela Gonzalez and Warren Johnson. The Department has strong research efforts in particle physics, including nuclear and neutrino physics, space physics, condensed matter physics, medical physics, and astronomy and astrophysics.
Deadline for applications is April 5, 2010. See the full ad at:
