The theoretical relativity group expects to have (contingent on funding) an opening for a postdoctoral researcher or senior postdoctoral researcher to start July 2012. This position conducts research in loop quantum gravity including either the canonical or spin foam approaches and/or loop quantum cosmology. The initial appointment will be for one year and is expected to be renewed for another one or two years subject to satisfactory progress and availability of funds. The core relativity group at LSU consists of Steve Brandt, Frank Loeffler, Peter Diener, Jorge Pullin, and Parampreet Singh. In addition, LSU hosts a strong experimental gravity group with activity in LIGO, whose Livingston site is 30 miles away from Baton Rouge. LSU is also host to the Center for Computation and Technology (CCT), a multidisciplinary research center which includes computational groups in several areas of science, engineering and the humanities. Several researchers in the relativity group have joint appointments at CCT.
