A Mexico-based group spanning several Universities and working in Gravity, Quantum Theory, and their interface invites applications for a postdoctoral position in related topics. The group members are Y. Bonder, J.C. Degollado, L. Jaime, B. Juarez-Aubry, S. Modak, U. Nucamendi, E. Okon, N. Ortiz, I. Pena, M. Salgado, and D. Sudarsky, and the topics of interest include
– Black holes and compact objects,
– Foundations of quantum and gravitational physics,
– Modified gravity theories including metric-affine theories,
– Numerical relativity,
– QFT in curved spacetime and semiclassical gravity,
– Quantum gravity phenomenology, violation of spacetime symmetries, and tests of gravity with quantum systems.
The selected candidate is expected to spend most of their time at the National Autonomous University (UNAM), in the Mexico City campus, where most group members are based, but collaboration with other members is encouraged. The position is for two years starting in January 2022 (there is some flexibility on the starting/ending dates). A PhD in physics or related fields is required by the time of the appointment. Questions regarding the position may be directed to Yuri Bonder at bonder[AT]nucleares.unam.mx.
Applications will begin to be reviewed on May 3, 2021; this process will continue until the position is filled. Please apply by sending a cover letter, a complete CV, and a research proposal to bonder[AT]nucleares.unam.mx, and arrange for three referees to send recommendation letters to the same email. In the cover letter please mention your area(s) of expertise and specify the date of your PhD defense (or the expected date).
