Position Description:    

The nuclear theory group at MIT hopes to make one or more postdoctoral appointments to begin September 1, 2021. The research interests of our group are centered around QCD, with emphases that include lattice gauge theory, chiral perturbation theory, hadron structure, factorization, effective theories, heavy quark physics, jet physics, quark-gluon plasma in QCD and other gauge theories, connections to string theory, and QCD at high density. Our current faculty group includes William Detmold, John Negele, Krishna Rajagopal, Phiala Shanahan, Iain Stewart, several postdocs and a large number of visitors. We also interact strongly with our particle theory colleagues, among whom Robert Jaffe, Hong Liu, Jesse Thaler, and Frank Wilczek have particularly strongly overlapping interests. Apply to the position at Applications should include a CV, a statement of research interests, a list of publications and the names of three senior physicists who will provide letters of recommendation. MIT is an affirmative action, equal opportunity employer.

There are also postdoctoral positions available in the CTP in high-energy theory ( and quantum information science / quantum computing ( Candidates whose research aligns with more than one of these areas, or who are unsure if their research fits the description for a given position, are encouraged to apply for all CTP positions that may be relevant to them. The CTP seeks a broad and diverse applicant pool, and welcomes applications from candidates at the intersections of (sub)fields.

For full consideration, applications should be received by 11.59pm US Eastern time on November 15, 2020, including all letters of recommendation. The application will request that you select which faculty you are most likely to interact with scientifically; this is a required question, and if you do not answer it then your application will be considered incomplete.

MIT is an equal employment opportunity employer. All qualified applicants will receive consideration for employment and will not be discriminated against on the basis of race, color, sex, sexual orientation, gender identity, religion, disability, age, genetic information, veteran status, ancestry, or national or ethnic origin.
