Location:  Baton Rouge, Louisiana, USA

The theoretical relativity group of Louisiana State University invites applications for a postdoctoral position working in quantum gravity and/or theoretical cosmology and/or quantum field theory in curved space-times. 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.
