Position Description:    

*** this position has been closed and new applications are no longer accepted. ***

The Center for Theoretical Physics at Ecole Polytechnique (Palaiseau, France) invites applications for up to two postdoctoral positions starting in Fall 2022, in the research group of Dr. Blaise Goutéraux funded by the ERC Starting Grant 2018-2023 'Hydrodynamics, holography and strongly-coupled quantum matter'.

We are looking for applicants with a PhD in theoretical physics and expertise in effective theories, hydrodynamics, AdS/CFT, strongly-correlated Condensed Matter systems and their intersection. Current members of the group are Blaise Goutéraux, Filippo Sottovia (PhD student), Vaios Ziogas (postdoctoral researcher). Two more postdoctoral researchers, Daniel Brattan and Ashish Shukla will join the group by early 2022.

Other members of CPHT with research interests overlapping with the group include Silke Biermann, Guillaume Bossard, Michel Ferrero, Karyn Le Hur, Marios Petropoulos, Andrea Puhm, Laurent Sanchez-Palencia and Balt Van Rees amongst others. The CPHT Condensed Matter and String Theory groups comprise several postdoctoral fellows and PhD students. Further information about the institute can be found following the link at the bottom. The Paris area is home to many other theoretical institutes at the forefront of research in theoretical High Energy and Condensed Matter physics.

Appointments will be for two years, with possible extension for another year contingent on satisfactory performance and availability of funding. We offer competitive salaries, as well as generous travel allowance.

For full consideration, the application deadline is Nov 30, 2021, although later applications may be considered if the positions have not yet been filled. All applications should be made online through Academic Jobs Online.
