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, causal sets, matrix and tensor models, the interplay of quantum gravity with matter and black-hole spacetimes.

The candidate must have completed a PhD in physics by the time of appointment and have worked on quantum gravity. Expertise on discrete quantum-gravity models, in particular causal sets, as well as coarse-graining techniques for discrete models is desirable, although not necessary.

The vibrant international research environment at CP3-Origins includes researchers focusing on quantum and classical aspects of gravity, the formal development of fundamental quantum theories of nature and their phenomenology, key questions of cosmology such as the nature of dark matter and dark energy and lattice gauge theories. There is an active international visitor program, together with international workshops, conferences and schools. This year, the quantum-gravity research team has also organized a series of online workshops on quantum gravity that contributed 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 2021. We are happy to receive your expressions of interest all year long. However, full consideration will be given to enquiries received before the 1st of December 2020.

To submit your expression of interest, please submit a CV, list of publication, research statement (including a brief overview of research to date and a proposal for future research) and at least three letters of recommendation.

For further information please contact Astrid Eichhorn at
