The Department of Physics at The Pennsylvania State University is seeking to fill a postdoctoral position in theoretical high energy physics, to start any time between June 2020 and September 2020. This position is primarily for work on scattering amplitudes in gauge and gravity theories, their implications for gravitational wave physics, gauge/string duality, integrability, neutrinos and related topics. The elementary-particle theory faculty at Penn State consists of: Jake Bourjaily, John Collins (emeritus), Murat Gunaydin, Irina Mocioiu, Kohta Murase, Radu Roiban, Sarah Shandera, Anna Stasto and Mark Strikman. There are experimental groups active in astroparticle physics (Auger, HAWC, Icecube, LZ collaborations), neutrino mass measurement (Project8 collaboration), and at RHIC. There are also active programs in theoretical gravitational physics, gravitational wave physics and cosmology. Postdoctoral scholars will be members of the Institute for Gravitation and the Cosmos at Penn State. Requirements include a Ph.D. in Physics. Applications must be submitted electronically and include a cover letter, CV and statement of research interests. Applicants should arrange for three reference letters to be submitted to indicating the appropriate job number in the subject line. This is a fixed-term appointment funded for one year from date of hire, with possibility of re-funding.

Applicants questions may be sent to: Prof. Irina Mocioiu or Prof. Radu Roiban, Physics Department, The Pennsylvania State University, 104 Davey Laboratory, University Park, PA 16802, U.S.A.
