Position Description:    

The Junior Research Group (JRG), “Holography and Black Holes”, of Asia Pacific Centre for Theoretical Physics (APCPT), Pohang, Korea invites applications for two postdoctoral fellow positions starting between April and September 2023. The starting date of the appointment is negotiable. 

APCTP, founded in 1996, is an international organization dedicated to excellence in research and the training of young scientists in the Asia-Pacific region. APCTP offers a great research environment with strong connections to a number of active theoretical and experimental research groups at the Pohang University of Science and Technology (POSTECH). APCTP has broad international agreements with many leading institutions around the globe for scientific exchanges. 

The Junior Research Group " Holography and Black Holes" led by the JRG leader, prof. Junggi Yoon, has a broad interest on theoretical high energy physics. The postdoctoral fellow will primarily collaborate with Junggi Yoon on various topics such as (but not limited to) 

  • Holography, dS/CFT, large N models, numerical simulation for matrix models
  • Quantum information theory and black hole information problem
  • Low-dimensional quantum gravity and higher spin gravity 

The appointment is initially for one year but will be extended up to two additional years depending on the research performance. 

Review of application will continue until the positions are filled, but priority will be given to the application received by 20 Dec. 2022.
