The Irish Research Council Government of Ireland Postdoctoral Fellowship Scheme is a competitive scheme funding 2-year research fellowships across all disciplines. The Relativity Group in Dublin City University (Abraham Harte, Brien Nolan, Ko Sanders, Peter Taylor and IRC Postdoc Aindriu Conroy) invites expressions of interest from potential applicants working in classical General Relativity (self-force/problem of motion, mathematical relativity, wave propagation in curved spacetimes, exact solutions) or in Quantum Field Theory in Curved Spacetime (renormalisation, quantum aspects of black hole physics, algebraic QFT, mathematical aspects of QFT).
The deadline for full applications to the IRC is 19th November 2020. To allow time for the collaborative preparation of a competitive application, those interested in the scheme should contact one of those named below by Sunday 18th October 2020, including a short cv and a brief statement of research interests. Terms and conditions for the 2021 scheme can be found at the link above. Note in particular that applicants must have either graduated or have been certified as having fulfilled all the requirements for the award of a doctoral degree, including the submission of the hardbound corrected thesis, within the five-year period between 31 May 2016 and 31 May 2021.
