Position Description:    

The group of Prof. Daniel Baumann at the Institute of Physics (University of Amsterdam) invites applications for several postdoctoral positions starting in the fall of 2024. The positions are financed by the ERC Synergy Grant project “UNIVERSE+: Positive Geometry in Particle Physics and Cosmology”. The principal investigators are Nima Arkani-Hamed (Princeton), Daniel Baumann (Amsterdam), Johannes Henn (Munich) and Bernd Sturmfels (Leipzig). The team aims to create a new mathematical language to describe physical phenomena at all scales, from the interactions of elementary particles to the large-scale structure of the Universe. For more information, see

While the advertised positions are at the University of Amsterdam, the hired researchers will be part of the larger UNIVERSE+ team. We encourage and facilitate regular exchanges between the participating host institutions. Given the cross-disciplinary nature of the research, we are particularly interested in candidates that can facilitate the exchange of information across the boundaries of the different research areas.

Applications received before Dec 17, 2023 will receive full consideration.
