Deadline:  2015-12-04

Location:  Stockholm, Sweden

Nordita, the Nordic Institute for Theoretical Physics, is pleased to announce a three-year postdoc position in Theoretical High Energy Physics. The research project is to study applications of the AdS/CFT duality to condensed matter physics. In particular, we plan to study the connection of this approach to gravitational analogues.

The candidate should have a PhD in theoretical high energy physics or related fields. Experience with applications of the gauge-gravity duality to condensed matter systems in particular is desired. The successful candidate will work at Nordita in Stockholm in close collaboration with Sabine Hossenfelder, Konstantin Zarembo and with other members of the high energy physics group.

The position is supported by the Swedish Research Council. The appointment is for three years, starting no later than September 2016, on a date to be agreed upon. The deadline for applications is

December 4th, 2015

Applications should contain a curriculum vitae, including a list of publications, and a statement of research interests including future research plans not to exceed two pages. In addition, candidates must arrange for at least two letters of recommendation. Application documents and letters should be submitted at

For further questions please contact Sabine Hossenfelder, hossi[AT]

Nordita is jointly hosted by Stockholm University and KTH Royal Institute of Technology. Research at Nordita covers a wide range of modern theoretical physics including astrophysics, biological physics, condensed matter physics, gravitation, cosmology and astroparticle physics, high-energy physics, and statistical physics/complex systems. The research activity of the local academic staff is supplemented by Nordita Scientific Programs, which bring together groups of leading experts to work on specific topics for extended periods.
