Position Description:    

We anticipate having a postdoctoral opening in theoretical physics, including cosmology, particle physics, and astrophysics, within the Tufts Institute of Cosmology. The position is expected to begin September 1, 2019, and its duration will depend on funding and progress. 

The postdoc will work with Prof. Mark Hertzberg, in addition to opportunities to work with other professors in the group, Larry Ford, Ken Olum, and Alex Vilenkin, as well as other professors in the greater Boston area. The group also includes other postdocs, long-term visitors, graduate students, and has a joint seminar series with MIT. 

The research will be at the interface of theoretical cosmology, particle physics, and astrophysics. Interests include early universe cosmology, aspects of dark matter including axions and other models, applications of effective field theory, quantum gravity, foundations of general relativity, particle theory, astrophysical puzzles, and other subjects.

Applicants are invited to send their C.V., publication list, a statement of research interests, and to arrange for three letters of reference to be sent. It is strongly preferred to upload applications at https://academicjobsonline.org/ajo/jobs/12553. If necessary, applications can be emailed to mark.hertzberg (at) Tufts.edu in a single pdf.

Applications received by December 10, 2018 will be given full consideration.
