Graduate studentships in gravitational physics at the University of New Brunswick

The gravity group at the University of New Brunswick (www.math.unb.ca/~gravity/) is seeking students to begin masters (MSc) or doctoral studies (PhD) in September 2018 (or sooner). Applicants should have a degree in physics or mathematics from a recognized university.

The group consists of three faculty members: Viqar Husain, Sanjeev Seahra and Edward Wilson-Ewing. Typically, the group also includes 1-2 postdoctoral researchers, 2-4 graduates students and 1-3 undergraduate student members. Our main areas of research are general relativity and its modifications, quantum gravity and cosmology.

Please submit a complete CV, a cover letter describing your research interests, and a copy of your academic transcripts to MathJobs.org (link above at “External Link”). Additionally, you may also submit a publication list and arrange for up to three referees to submit reference letters to MathJobs.org directly. Informal enquires may be directed to any gravity group faculty member. Applications received by January 31, 2018 will receive full consideration, although later applications may also be considered.

Perimeter Scholars International

Each year, Canada’s Perimeter Institute for Theoretical Physics recruits approximately 30 exceptional science graduates for an immersive, 10-month physics boot camp: Perimeter Scholars International (PSI). This unique Master’s program seeks not only students with stellar undergraduate physics track records, but also those with diverse backgrounds, collaborative spirit, creativity, and other attributes that will set them apart as future innovators.

Features of the program include:

All student costs (tuition, living, travel) are covered, removing financial and/or geographical barriers to entry
Students learn from world-leading theoretical physicists – resident Perimeter researchers and visiting scientists – within the inspiring environment of Perimeter Institute
Collaboration is valued over competition; deep understanding and creativity are valued over rote learning and examination
PSI recruits worldwide: 85 percent of students come from outside of Canada
PSI takes calculated risks, seeking extraordinary talent who may have non-traditional academic backgrounds but have demonstrated exceptional scientific aptitude
PSI is now accepting applications for the class of 2015/16. Applications are due by February 1, 2015.

M.Sc. and Ph.D. positions at the University of Lethbridge

Applications are invited from students interested in doing M.Sc. or Ph.D. in Theoretical Physics at the Department of Physics and Astronomy, University of Lethbridge, Alberta, Canada, under the supervision of Dr. Saurya Das, to work on Quantum Gravity, Cosmology and related areas, starting January 2015.
Applicants must have B.Sc., M.Sc. or equivalent in Physics/Theoretical Physics, and have an excellent grasp of its fundamental areas. Knowledge of advanced topics, such as general relativity and quantum field theory, and familiarity with computation and computational softwares such as Mathematica, Matlab, GRTensor etc will be an asset.
Please send your Statement, CV, Transcripts (scanned/electronic copies are fine), and arrange to send at least three letters of reference directly to saurya.das[AT]uleth.ca . Complete applications will be reviewed as and when they are received, until the positions are filled. Graduate students are supported by a combination of teaching and research assistantships, which is generally sufficient to cover tuition and living expenses.

International Physics Course at Osaka University (master and Ph.D.)

The Department of Physics of Osaka University is calling for applications to its International Physics Course (IPC).

It offers Master and Ph.D. courses on a wide range of research topics in Physics (see also the webpage below for more details). The most successful applicants will receive a scholarship.

Education and research is conducted in English (but students are welcome to learn a little of Japanese language and culture).

Applications for the admission to the academic year 2012/13 (starting from October 1, 2012) are open from November 1 to December 10, 2011.
