As part of a new initiative of the Institute for Mathematics, Astrophysics and Particle Physics (IMAPP) and the Department of Theoretical High-Energy Physics in particular, we are looking for an Assistant Professor in Quantum Gravity (Tenure Track). This position will further strengthen the new research focus on Quantum Gravity, which was initiated with the recent hiring of Prof. Renate Loll, who will be joining the Institute with her working group. Aim of the research is to uncover the fundamental quantum dynamics of space and time, and their interaction with matter. The new initiative is embedded in the nationally defined focus area “Quantum Universe” of the Dutch Sector Plan “Physics and Chemistry”.
Applicants must be experts in quantum gravity and theoretical high-energy physics with a substantial international track record of research in this area, and willing to play an active role in building up the new research focus “Quantum Gravity”. The IMAPP provides an attractive working environment for foundational, front-line research, ranging from pure math to collider physics, with the ultimate aim of understanding the origin and structure of our universe. The set-up of the Institute facilitates interactions across traditional boundaries between the disciplines represented in it, and the incoming assistant professor is expected to strengthen ties with existing related lines of research.
