Two postdoctoral positions in Quantum Gravity at SUSTech (Southern University of Science and Technology, Shenzhen)

The newly established “Classical and Quantum Gravity Group” (spacetime structure from small to large scales) at SUSTech (Shenzhen, China) is looking for very motivated candidates to fill several postdoctoral positions as soon as possible. Our research mainly focuses on local (Lee-Wick) and nonlocal super-renormalizable or finite gravitational theories (SRQG), and super-renormalizable or finite completion/s of the standard model of particle physics (SRSM). Therefore, the interested candidates should submit a short research project highlighting the potential impact of their past research on SRQG and SRSM. Furthermore, other Related interests of the group are: ADS/CFT, black hole physics, cosmology, theoretical astrophysics.

Priority will be given to experts in: perturbative quantum gravity, asymptotically safe quantum gravity, quantum field theory. Candidates in extended/modified theories of gravity, string theory, supergravity, ADS/CFT correspondence, cosmology, classical and quantum black Holes will be considered as well.

Preference may be given to candidates with no more than 2-3 years of postdoctoral experience. ABD (All But Dissertation) candidates are also encouraged to apply. The positions will start as soon as possible and the appointment is for 3 years. The salary is negotiable and it starts from 220,000 RMB/year (30,000 Euro/year).

Interested candidates should send their CV, including contact details of 2-3 referees, and expected starting date, short statement of research interests and/or experience, and publication list. For full considerations all the material should be sent to lmodesto[AT] by February 15, 2016.

Please arrange also for 2-3 recommendation letters to be sent separately to the same email address.

If electronic submission is not possible, application materials may be sent via regular mail to:

Prof. Leonardo Modesto
Physics Department, Southern University of Science and Technology
No 1088, Xueyuan Rd., Xili, Nanshan District, Shenzhen, Guangdong,
China 518055

Tel: +86 150 2672 5795 (Mobile)
