Job Description


The Theoretical High Energy Group at the Niels Bohr Institute in Copenhagen and the Niels Bohr International Academy invite expressions of interest for a three-year postdoctoral position, starting in the Fall of 2024. 

The position will be in the quantum gravity group led by Alessia Platania. Interests of the group include infrared constraints on quantum gravity theories (particularly asymptotically safe gravity and string theory) and quantum gravity phenomenology. We are looking for an outstanding and highly-motivated postdoc with research expertise in one or more of the following areas: quantum gravity, string theory, renormalization group, effective field theory, black-hole physics.


Material to be uploaded


Interested individuals are expected to hold (or to be close to obtain) a PhD degree in Theoretical Physics or closely related areas. All required material (cover letter, curriculum vitae, research statement, and at least three recommendation letters) should be submitted by January 20th, 2024.


Institute and Benefits


The Niels Bohr International Academy and the Niels Bohr Institute High-Energy group are primary centers for fundamental research. Postdoctoral fellows can guide more junior fellows, teach courses at various levels, participate in outreach activities, and organize international meetings. We have an extensive program of visiting scholars throughout the year and sponsors conferences and workshops on various topics. Fellows receive a competitive salary (including pension) and funds for travel and computing. Danish employees have generous parental leave, state-subsidized childcare, vacation, and medical care. A favorable tax scheme generally applies to international researchers.


The University of Copenhagen wishes to reflect the diversity of society and welcomes all qualified candidates regardless of background. Applications from people belonging to minority groups are especially welcome.
