Deadline:  2015-07-31

Location:  Nijmegen, The Netherlands

There are four PhD positions available as part of the FOM Research Program on “Quantum Gravity and the Search for Quantum Spacetime”, based at the Radboud University in Nijmegen. Applicants must have a university degree in (theoretical or mathematical) physics at masters level or equivalent and proven abilities in theoretical physics and mathematics, and should preferably have worked in an area related to the themes of the network (nonperturbative quantum gravity, renormalization group methods, non-commutative geometry, lattice gravity). We offer good working conditions and in particular would like to encourage also female candidates to apply.

The research program is located at the Institute for Mathematics, Astrophysics and Particle Physics (IMAPP) of the Radboud University, which provides an attractive and interdisciplinary working environment for foundational, front-line research. Successful applicants will work under the (co-)supervision of the senior members of the research program. Please see URL given below for further details and how to apply. A first screening and selection of applications will take place on July 31st, later applications will be considered as long as positions remain vacant.
