Postdoctoral Positions at CRST

There are currently two postdoctoral opportunities at CRST for the 2017-2018 round of applications:

  • One postdoctoral position in scattering amplitudes will be available in CRST, funded by the STFC. Details on how to apply can be found here. Closing date for applications is December 3 2017. For informal enquiries contact Prof. Andreas Brandhuber or Prof. Gabriele Travaglini. The Amplitudes group at QMUL has recently been strengthened by several new appointments and provides a vibrant environment for research. Current members are Andreas Brandhuber, Ricardo Monteiro, Bill Spence, Gabriele Travaglini, Chris White, and Congkao Wen will join in April 2018. Applications have to be made via this website. In addition three letters of recommendations should be sent by the deadline to Ms Jazmina Vaca Ortiz.
     
  • Applications are also invited for a post-doctoral position, shared between the Centre for Theoretical Physics in the School of Physics of the University of the Witwatersrand (WITS), Johannesburg, South Africa and the CRST at QMUL, commencing on September 1, 2018. The successful candidate will spend the first year of the post doc in Johannesburg, followed by a second year in London. The appointments are subject to approval by the appropriate funding agencies and are limited to two years. It is possible to apply for additional sources of funding to secure an extension, but this is not guaranteed. Post-docs can expect a reasonable stipend for research related travel in addition to airfare to Johannesburg on starting. Applicants should have obtained a Ph.D. within the last five years and have shown evidence of accomplishment and independence in their research in string theory, non-perturbative quantum field theory, quantum gravity, or theoretical cosmology. There will be a preference for candidates who show promise of fruitfully interacting with the ongoing work on the interfaces between representation theory and gauge/string combinatorics at QMUL and WITS. Further information about the position may be obtained by e-mailing postdoc.wits@gmail.com. Applicants should apply through Academic Jobs Online with a Curriculum Vitae, a list of publications, and a statement of research interests. The cover letter should indicate a probable start date. We request three reference letters. Closing date for applications is December 15 2017. For further details and the application procedure, see here.
