Opening for a postdoctoral research associate position starting in the Fall of 2017, under supervision of Prof. Ted Jacobson. The position is for one year, with renewal for a second year expected, depending on the continuation of funding and satisfactory progress.
A broad range of potential research areas for this position will be considered, including (but not limited to) quantum gravity and black holes, horizon entropy and entanglement, laboratory analogs of QFT in curved spacetime, astrophysical plasma physics, and axion electrodynamics.
The research associate will be part of the Maryland Center for Fundamental Physics (MCFP, http://mcfp.physics.umd.edu/), and, depending on interests, also with the Joint Space Science Institute (JSI, http://jsi.astro.umd.edu/), which includes members from UMD physics, astronomy, and NASA/Goddard.
