Postdoc position in Loop Quantum Gravity at LSU, Baton Rouge, USA

The Theoretical General Relativity Group at LSU expects to have, contingent on funding, an opening for a postdoctoral researcher working in loop quantum gravity/cosmology and related areas. The initial appointment will be for one year and the selected applicant is expected to be renewed for another one, subject to satisfactory progress and availability of funds. The postdoctoral researcher will perform research on loop quantum gravity applications in cosmology and black hole physics and related areas.

The core relativity group at LSU consists of Ivan Agullo, Steve Brandt, Peter Diener, Jorge Pullin and Parampreet Singh, and several graduate students and postdoctoral researchers. In addition to that, LSU hosts a strong experimental gravity group with activity in the Laser Interferometer Gravitational Wave Observatory (LIGO), whose Livingston site is 30 miles away from Baton Rouge. LSU is also host to the Center for Computation & Technology (CCT), a multidisciplinary research center which includes computational groups in several areas of science, engineering and the humanities. Several researchers in the relativity group have joint appointments at CCT.

Review of applications will begin on November 15, 2019.
