Two postdoc positions in quantum gravity at CPT, Marseille, France

More info:  external link

Location:  Marseille, France

The quantum gravity group in Marseille opens two postdoctoral positions in quantum gravity, and calls for applications. We expect to fill one position soon, possibly this year, and the second in the fall 2013. Each position is for two years.

No decision will be taken before September 20th for this year opening, and before November 20th for the fall 2013 opening. Applications after these deadlines will continue to be considered, until both positions are filled.

The candidate is expected to have a solid interest and possibly a good competence in the research topics developed by the Marseille quantum gravity group, and to be willing to participate in the scientific activity of the group and collaborate with its members. She is also expected to assume some minor responsibility in scientific organization and possibly in graduate students supervision.

Please send applications and support letters to the address:


indicating the name of the candidate in the subject line. For question, please write to rovelli[AT]

Please specify the date at which the candidate could start working in Marseille. A good application will include a concise summary of previous scientific work emphasizing its interesting results, and a statement or research interests. One or two reference letters from senior scientists can be mailed to the same address. The group supports affirmative action.
