Postdoctoral Opportunities in quantum gravity

Deadline: December 11, 2019
Expected starting date: 2020, flexible
Job Location: SDU, Odense, Denmark

We expect an opening according to funding availability in quantum gravity at the Centre for Cosmology and Particle Physics Phenomenology (CP3-Origins) at the University of Southern Denmark in Odense.

The prospective candidate will work in the research team of Astrid Eichhorn, which focuses on aspects of quantum gravity, including asymptotically safe gravity, matrix and tensor models, causal sets, the interplay of quantum gravity with matter and black-hole spacetimes.

CP3-Origins is a centre of excellence established by the Danish National Research Foundation, dedicated to understanding fundamental interactions, including quantum gravity, as well as the origins of bright and dark matter in our universe, and the mathematical underpinning of gauge theories of fundamental interactions. At the moment it contains 11 faculty and several postdocs and PhD students in these areas. There is an active international visitor program, together with international workshops, conferences and schools that contribute to a stimulating research environment.

The appointment will be for a term of two years or longer, depending on the candidate’s background, at a very competitive salary and is expected to start in the fall of 2020. We are happy to receive your expressions of interest all year long. However, full consideration will be given to enquiries received before the 11th of December 2019.
