Are you interested in the fields of dark matter, dark energy or modified gravity ? If so, we invite you to apply for the above two year STFC funded post to begin in October 2021.

If your research interests are in one or more of the following areas we particularly encourage you to apply: axions or PBHs as dark matter candidates; the nature of dark energy; the cosmological constant problem; approaches to test for modified gravity including screened scalar forces in nature.

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. We are looking for a researcher who can both work together with members of the above groups on the above projects, and who has the potential to develop their own lines of research.

You will need to have, or be close to completion of, a PhD in physics or a related subject area, and have a track record of publishing and disseminating your work through conferences and seminars as appropriate to your career stage.

This full time post is available from 01 October 2021 and will be offered on a fixed term contract until 30 September 2023. Job share arrangements may be considered.
