Postdoctoral positions in gravitational physics, quantum gravity and cosmology

Universidad Complutense Madrid, Spain, Europe

Deadline on April 15, 2024

Job description:

The Department of Theoretical Physics of the Universidad Complutense de Madrid, Spain invites applications for two 2-years postdoctoral positions. The expected starting date of the positions in September or at the latest the (early) Fall 2024.

The hired postdoctoral researchers will work under the supervision of Prof. D. Oriti, and in close collaboration with other faculty members (including Prof. L. Garay, Prof. Martin-Benito, and others), on projects at the interface of quantum gravity, mathematical physics and cosmology.

Candidates must hold a PhD degree (in Physics or Mathematics) by the beginning of September 2024, and have a research track record and solid expertise in at least one, but preferably more, of the following research areas: quantum gravity, quantum cosmology, quantum field theory (in curved spacetimes), mathematical gravitational physics, theoretical (and physical) cosmology, the (mathematical) theory of quantum fluids and quantum many-body systems.

Not required, but welcome, is specialized knowledge of quantum gravity formalisms like group field theory, or canonical loop quantum gravity, and of loop quantum cosmology.

The salary will be in the range 2500-3500EUR/month before taxes, and depending on research experience, with an additional allowance for travel and other research expenses.

The application should include: a brief letter of interest, a CV with publications list, and a short (2 pages max) outline of research interests, in a single pdf file. It should be sent via email to daniele.oriti[AT], with subject “Postdoc application – Candidate Name”.
Moreover, two reference letters should be sent to the same address, with subject “Recommendation letter – Candidate Name”, by the deadline.

For more information about this position, please contact Prof. D. Oriti directly.
