Postdoc position in Loop Quantum Gravity/Cosmology, Warsaw, Poland
Quantum gravity group at the Faculty of Physics, University of Warsaw is inviting applications for a postdoctoral position in quantum gravity and cosmology starting in fall of 2015. The appointment duration is one year with monthly salary of about 1500EUR (6,500PLN), The successful candidate is expected to extensively contribute to the program of probing the dynamics of loop quantum gravity and related simplified models. Thus, prior experience in loop quantum gravity and cosmology is required with particularly welcome experience in research of the interface between these two frameworks as well as in studies of black holes in context of loop quantization. Since part of the research involved will be the numerical studies with use (and further extension) of an existing Numerical LQG/LQC library, the past experience with numerical methods and object oriented programing may also be an advantage. In order to apply the candidate should have the PhD degree in Physics at the time of application. The application consisting of a cover letter, CV, list of publications and statement of research interest should be sent electronically to Tomasz Pawlowski (tpawlow[AT]fuw.edu.pl). The candidate should also arrange for three letters of recommendation from senior researchers to be sent to the same address (with the phrase ‘recommendation letter’ and the applicant’s name in the subject). The position is open until filled, however the applications sent by Oct 15, 2015 will receive full consideration.
