The Department of Gravitation and Field Theory of the Institute for Nuclear Sciences at UNAM is inviting applications for a tenure-track position at roughly the assistant professor level (either “Asociado C” or “Titular A”), the exact appointment depending on qualifications.
The Department lines of research include classical and quantum aspects of gravitation, numerical relativity, cosmology, quantum field theory, mathematical physics, lattice QCD, biophysics, and complex systems. We invite applications from talented young researchers working in any of these fields, but also welcome novel profiles compatible with the Department’s general direction. Current members include Miguel Alcubierre, Wolfgang Bietenholz, Chryssomalis Chryssomalakos, Jemal Guven, Darío Núñez, Hernando Quevedo, Marcos Rosenbaum, Marcelo Salgado, Christopher Stephens, Daniel Sudarsky, Roberto Sussman, Alexander Turbiner, and various postdoctoral fellows and graduate students. The Department participates actively in the Graduate Program in Physics of UNAM, a typical teaching load for its members being a graduate level course every other semester.
Candidates for the position should have a PhD in Physics, or closely related fields, and should be under 37 (male) / 39 (female) years of age when starting the job (tentatively around September 2014, although adjustments are possible to suit particular needs). Persons interested in applying should submit a CV and short research plan, and arrange for three letters of recommendation to be sent directly by email to Prof. Chryssomalis Chryssomalakos (chryss[AT]nucleares.unam.mx) with copy to Mrs. Trinidad Ramirez (fengari[AT]nucleares.unam.mx).
