Postdoctoral Research Positions in the GRASP Initiative at Harvard University

The Gravity, Spacetime, and Particle Physics (GRASP) Initiative, an exciting new opportunity led by Professor Lisa Randall, is now accepting applications for a postdoctoral fellowship in high energy theory. We anticipate a dynamic environment with interactions with many interesting visitors as well as the members of the Harvard theory group.

Positions begin in the academic year 2024-2025 and can begin as early as July 2024. The appointment would be at the rank of Postdoctoral Fellow. The initial appointment is for two years, with a third year contingent upon continued funding and research collaboration.

Applications should consist of a letter of application, CV, and research statement. Please also provide three letters of recommendation from senior scientists who know your work.

Harvard University is an equal opportunity employer and all qualified applicants will receive consideration for employment without regard to race, color, religion, sex, national origin, disability status, protected veteran status, gender identity, sexual orientation, pregnancy and pregnancy-related conditions or any other characteristic protected by law.

Applications and supporting materials should arrive by December 7, 2023 for full consideration. However, later applications may also be considered on a rolling basis.

Candidates for this position must have completed their Ph.D. degree by the appointment start date; demonstrate outstanding research in high energy theory appropriate to the level of the position; and have the ability to identify and pursue research problems independently while working well in an interactive and dynamic setting.

All applications must be submitted via Harvard University's academic positions website: https://academicpositions.harvard.edu/postings/13116

We are not accepting applications for this job through AcademicJobsOnline.Org right now. Please apply at https://academicpositions.harvard.edu/postings/13116 external link.
