Position Description:    

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

The Brandeis Quantum and Gravitational Theory Group invites applications for one or more postdocs starting in fall 2022. Our group, which includes faculty members Matthew Headrick, Albion Lawrence, and Brian Swingle, conducts research in classical and quantum gravity, quantum field theory, quantum information theory, cosmology, hard condensed-matter theory, and related areas of theoretical physics.

One position will be funded by a DOE HEP-QuantISED collaboration grant, “Complex quantum systems and the quantum universe”, involving 9 institutions throughout the United States, for which we are looking for applicants with a significant research interest in problems at the interface of high-energy theory and quantum information theory. The successful candidate will have the opportunity to participate in meetings of the collaboration and visit other universities in the collaboration. There is also a possibility of an additional postdoctoral position in our research group, funded from other sources, within the broad range of research activities we cover.

The appointments will be for two years (contingent on continuation of funding), with the anticipation of renewal for a third year contingent on funding and performance. Applicants should send a cover letter, research statement, CV, and list of publications to, and arrange for at least three letters of reference to be sent as well. For full consideration, please submit by Monday, January 3, although we may consider applications sent after that date.

Minorities and women are encouraged to apply. Brandeis University is committed to fostering a diverse and inclusive academic global community, and as an EEO/AA employer, considers applications for employment without regard to gender, race, sexual orientation, protected veteran status, disability, or any other legally protected status.
