A postdoctoral position in the area of quantum gravity will be available at the Institute for Theoretical Physics at the University of Heidelberg, starting in the fall of 2017. The successful applicant will become a member of the Emmy Noether junior research group on “The fundamental quantum structure of spacetime and matter”, headed by Dr. A. Eichhorn.
The focus of the position will be on Renormalization Group flows in quantum gravity, including asymptotically safe quantum gravity as well as group field theories/tensor models. Applicants should hold a PhD and have a background in one of these topics.
The position will initially be for two years, with the possibility of an extension by two more years.
Questions on the position should be directed to a.eichhorn[AT]thphys.uni-heidelberg.de.
Applications should be submitted until Dec. 15, 2016 through the general postdoc-search at the Institute for Theoretical Physics, University of Heidelberg at https://academicjobsonline.org/ajo/jobs/8492
Applicants should include a cover letter with an indication that they are applying for the position in Dr. Eichhorn’s research group, a curriculum vitae, a research proposal, a list of publications and three reference letters (to be submitted by the reference writers.)
