The 2-year post-doc position in the National Science Centre grant OPUS-17-ST2.

The candidates are expected to have some basic experience in discretized models of quantum gravity and the ability to create the necessary computer codes and to perform massive numerical simulations. The position is in the Institute of Theoretical Physics, Jagiellonian University in Krakow, Poland. The Institute hosts a big scientific group working on models of quantum gravity and quantum cosmology.

The Institute has a large computer facility, other facilities in Poland can also be used.

The studied model is the model of Causal Dynamical Triangulations, where the principal investigator (prof. Jerzy Jurkiewicz) is one of the creators of the model. The candidate will be expected to get involved in a collaboration with a large scientific group both in the Institute and abroad (Denmark, the Netherlands).

CV and a motivation letter + 2 recommendation letters. The candidates will be evaluated by a commission. The commission may invite potential candidates for an interview. The results will be announced on 2020-15-05.
