Each year Perimeter Institute for Theoretical Physics invites applications for postdoctoral positions, including named fellowships, from new and recent PhDs working in fundamental theoretical physics.

This year, Perimeter Institute is launching the Gravitational Waves Initiative. The goal of this initiative is to take advantage of the unique insights gravitational wave astronomy can provide into gravity, particle physics, cosmological large-scale structure, and transient astronomy across the electromagnetic spectrum. In tackling these fundamental issues, the Gravitational Waves Initiative brings together expertise in analytical and numerical approaches to studying the nonlinear regime of gravity, data analysis for gravitational wave observations, and connections to particle physics and cosmology. Candidates interested in joining this effort, especially those with a strong background in data analysis, are encouraged.

Most postdoctoral positions are offered for a period of three years. You may also be eligible for a named four-year postdoctoral fellowship including the Jocelyn Bell Burnell, Stephen Hawking, and Chien-Shiung Wu fellowships. Senior five-year fellowships are also available. Fellowships may, in addition, be offered jointly between Perimeter and partner institutes and universities.
Perimeter Institute is now accepting applications for the 2020/2021 academic year. The following information will be required to complete the application: Curriculum Vitae, Publications List, Research Statement, and Contact Information for three (3) referees. Applications are due November 1, 2019, while later application may also be considered.

Perimeter Institute is a member of the Simons Observatory (SO), Event Horizon Telescope (EHT), and Canadian Hydrogen Intensity Mapping Experiment (CHIME) collaborations.

Perimeter Institute is committed to diversity within its community and especially welcomes applications from racialized persons/persons of colour, women, Indigenous/Aboriginal People of North America, persons with disabilities, LGBTQ2 persons, and others who may contribute to the further diversification of ideas. Applicants who require special accommodation in order to complete their application/interview are encouraged to contact accessibility[AT] for assistance.
