Position Description:    

The group of Lorenz Eberhardt which is part of the Institute for Theoretical Physics (ITFA) at the University of Amsterdam (UvA) invites applications for a postdoctoral fellow with excellent research track record in String Theory and Mathematical Physics. The position is a full-time two-year appointment starting in Fall 2024, and may be extended to a third year upon successful performance, subject to funding and mutual agreement. The position is funded by the ERC Starting Grant ``New Handles for String Scattering Amplitudes’’ whose aim is to develop new tools in the study of string theory. The position carries with it a competitive salary and travel funds. The gross monthly salary ranges between € 3,226 to € 5.090 (scale 10) commensurate with experience. More details about the position can be found under The candidate is expected to have a PhD in theoretical physics or a suitable area of mathematics and a solid background in quantum field theory, mathematical physics and string theory, and be interested in carrying out research in string theory.

The faculty members in the string theory group are Jácome Armas, Daniel Baumann, Jan de Boer, Miranda Cheng, Lorenz Eberhardt, Ben Freivogel, Diego Hofman, Mikhail Isachenkov, Andrea Puhm, Jan Pieter van der Schaar, Erik Verlinde, Marcel Vonk.

Applications should be made via the joint postdoc applications related to theories on the unification of fundamental interactions and should consist of a CV and a research plan. The applicant should also arrange for three letters of recommendation to be submitted through the same portal. Please indicate UvA as one of the preferences on the portal. The deadline is December 17, 2023.
