Position Description:    

The MIT Center for Theoretical Physics hopes to have an opening for one or more postdoctoral positions in high-energy theory to begin September 1, 2021. Current faculty in the CTP are: Soonwon Choi, William Detmold, Netta Engelhardt, Edward Farhi, Jeffrey Goldstone, Alan Guth, Daniel Harlow, Aram Harrow, Roman Jackiw, Robert Jaffe, Hong Liu, John Negele, Krishna Rajagopal, Phiala Shanahan, Tracy Slatyer, Iain Stewart, Washington Taylor, Jesse Thaler, Frank Wilczek, and Barton Zwiebach. The interests of our group cover all areas of particle physics, phenomenology, cosmology, astroparticle physics, quantum field theory, quantum information, quantum gravity, string theory, and research connecting high energy physics, condensed matter physics, mathematics, and other related areas. 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 quantum information science / quantum computing ( and nuclear theory ( 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.
