Three or more postdoctoral positions in theoretical physics at the Department of Physics and Astronomy, Uppsala University, starting 2021/09/01, or later as agreed upon.

The postdoctoral positions are part of several projects and grants funded by the Knut and Alice Wallenberg Foundation, the European Research Council, the Swedish Research Council and the Ragnar Söderberg Foundation. Applicants are expected to conduct research in theoretical physics related to quantum field theory and string theory. Research areas of particular interest include (but are not restricted to): supersymmetry, gauge/gravity duality, integrability, conformal bootstrap, scattering amplitudes, gravitational waves, cosmology, and string phenomenology.

Prerequisites: The holder of a postdoctoral researcher position must have a PhD degree in theoretical physics or equivalent.

The application should contain a cover letter mentioning their research area, a CV, a brief research statement, and a publication list. The applicant should arrange to have two or more letters of recommendation made available on AcademicJobsOnline. Contact information for the letter writers should be included in the application.
