The theoretical relativity group expects to have, contingent on funding, an opening for a postdoctoral researcher or senior postdoctoral researcher working in loop quantum gravity starting September 2013. 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 Ivan Agullo’, Steve Brandt, Frank Loeffler, Peter Diener, Jorge Pullin and Parampreet Singh. In addition to that 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.
The postdoctoral researcher or senior postdoctoral researcher will perform research on numerical loop quantum cosmology which includes but is not limited to the following: research development, writing scientific papers, presenting talks at scientific meetings, participating in other local, state, national and international developments in theoretical relativity physics.
