Deadline:  2022-12-12

Location:  London, United Kingdom

We invite expressions of interest for an STFC-funded Postdoctoral Research Assistant in the Geometry, Analysis and Gravitation group in the School of Mathematical Sciences. The successful applicant will be expected to work in close collaboration with Prof. Pau Figueras and Dr. Katy Clough on the interface between modified gravity and early universe cosmology, studying the strong field regime of alternative theories of gravity with higher derivative corrections in cosmological spacetimes. The successful applicant should have existing expertise in one or more of numerical relativity, mathematical relativity, well-posed formulations of alternative theories of gravity and early university cosmology, and be motivated to contribute to new developments in these areas.

The successful applicant will have, or be about to obtain, a relevant PhD degree in mathematics or physics, or equivalent level of professional qualifications and experience.

The post is based at the Mile End campus in London. It is a full-time (35 hours per week), fixed term appointment for three years. The expected start date is April 2023 (negotiable).

Informal enquiries may be made to Prof. Pau Figueras at smsgravitypostdoc[AT]
