The Gravitation and Statistical Physics Group at the Institute of Physics and Mathematics of the University of Michoacan, Morelia, Mexico has a number of postdoctoral positions available, starting September 2019. The positions are funded by PRODEP or CONACyT and they are available for one year with a possible extension for another year.
The Gravitation and Statistical Physics Group currently consists of five faculty members (F. Astorga, U. Nucamendi, O. Sarbach, L. Tessieri and T. Zannias), one associate professor (E. Tejeda), one postdoc (P. Sheroan) and several graduate students. The current research areas of the group include the following topics:
Mathematical and Numerical Relativity
Physics and Astrophysics of Black Holes and Compact Objects
Relativistic Hydrodynamics and Thermodynamics
Relativistic Kinetic Theory
Disordered Systems and Anderson localization
Interested candidates should send their current cv and a short research proposal of a maximum of two pages to Dr. Ulises Nucamendi (ulises[AT]ifm.umich.mx) before May 15th, 2019. Due to restrictions imposed by the funding agencies, this announcement is directed to candidates that have obtained their Ph.D degree within the past two years.
