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 up to three postdoctoral positions as soon as possible. Our research mainly focuses on:

1) Nonlocal Quantum Gravity (NLQG).
2) Local Lee-Wick Quantum Gravity (LWQG).
3) Super-renormalizable or Finite completion of the Standard Model of Particle Physics (SRSM or FSM).
4) Black hole physics.
5) Cosmology.

Therefore, the interested candidates should submit a short research project highlighting the potential impact of their past research on NLQG, LWQG, SRSM or FSM. The group at the moment consists on 1 Research Associate Professor, 1 PhD student, and several undergraduate students.

Priority will be given to experts in: quantum field theory, perturbative quantum gravity, asymptotically safe quantum gravity, string theory, black hole physics, and cosmology.

Preference may be given to candidates with no more then 2 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 2 years. The salary is about 200,000 RMB/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, publication list. For full considerations all the material should be sent to lmodesto[AT] by October 31, 2018.

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