Deadline:  2020-02-24

Location:  Nottingham, UK

Are you interested in approaches to modified gravity and dark energy? If so, we invite you to apply for the above two year STFC funded post to begin in October 2020.

If your research interests are in one or more of the following areas we particularly encourage you to apply: addressing the cosmological constant problem and well tempered cosmologies, dark energy in the laboratory, such as with atom interferometry experiments, searches for light scalar fields such as the chameleon, symmetron and axion fields in cosmology and in the laboratory, and establishing a framework for performing non-linear simulations in alternative theories of gravity.

If successful, you will have the opportunity to work with a diverse set of researchers in the particle cosmology, quantum gravity and astronomy groups in Nottingham.

You will need to have a PhD (or close to obtaining a PhD) in physics or mathematics related to the subject.

This post will be offered on a full time, fixed term contract for a period of 2 years. Job share arrangements may be considered.

Informal enquiries may be addressed to Ed Copeland, tel: 0115 9515164: Or email: ed.copeland[AT] Please note that applications sent directly to this email address will not be accepted.
