The McGill University Centre for High Energy Physics invites applications for postdoctoral positions to start in September of 2022.

The successful applicant will join an exciting theoretical physics group, including Robert Brandenberger, Simon Caron-Huot, Jim Cline, Keshav Dasgupta, Sarah Harrison, Alexander Maloney, and Katelin Schutz, as well as several postdoctoral researchers. Research in our group covers string theory, field theory, particle phenomenology, astroparticle physics, mathematical physics and cosmology. We have strong ties to the research groups in astrophysics, nuclear theory, condensed matter theory and mathematics.

To be considered for a postdoctoral position, applications should be received by December 1, 2021. To apply, the applicant should submit a cover letter, a curriculum vitae, a list of publications, a statement of research interests and at least three letters of recommendation. Applications should be submitted through the academic jobs online website.

Several special fellowships exist for exceptional applicants. Applicants whose research area is in cosmology can be put forward for a fellowship supported in part by the Lorne Trottier Chair in Astrophysics and Cosmology at McGill and may be nominated for a Canadian Institute for Theoretical Astrophysics (CITA) National Fellowship. Applications which are received by November 15, 2021 will automatically be considered for these fellowships.

Applicants whose research area is in mathematical physics are encouraged to apply for a CRM-ISM postdoctoral fellowship to perform research with one of the faculty in our group. For information on how to apply, please consult the CRM Website.

McGill University is committed to diversity and equity within its community. We welcome applications from: women, Aboriginal persons, persons with disabilities, ethnic minorities, persons of minority sexual orientation or gender identity, visible minorities, and others who may contribute to diversification.
