|The newly founded Delta Institute for Theoretical Physics (D-ITP) and the Department of Physics and Astronomy at Utrecht University invite applications for a postdoctoral position starting in Fall 2017, in the field of High Energy Physics with particular focus on Theoretical Cosmology. The position is under the supervision of Enrico Pajer.
The D-ITP unites the existing institutes for theoretical physics at the University of Amsterdam, Leiden University, and Utrecht University. In 2013, the consortium has been awarded 18.3 million euros from the Netherlands Organization for Scientific Research (NWO). Every year the D-ITP has a significant number of openings for postdoctoral and PhD positions. Furthermore a nation-wide cosmology research program of the Foundation for Fundamental Research on Matter (FOM) has recently been funded under the name ``Observing the big bang: the quantum universe and its imprint on the sky". Ten additional postdoc and PhD positions in Theoretical Cosmology are being filled. The program involves researchers from five Dutch institutions (A. Achucarro (PI), A. Boyarsky and K. Schalm from Leiden University, B. Freivogel and J.P. van der Schaar from Amsterdam University, E. Pajer and T. Prokopec from Utrecht University, D. Roest from Groningen University and M. Postma from Nikhef). More recent hires are D. Baumann (Amsterdam University) and A. Silvestri (Leiden University).
The Department of Physics and Astronomy at Utrecht University has a strong theoretical physics group, whose current faculty member in high energy physics are Bernard de Wit (Nikhef/UU), Thomas Grimm, Umut Gursoy, Eric Laenen (adjunct professor), Enrico Pajer, Tomislav Prokopec, Gerard ’t Hooft and Stefan Vandoren.
Applications for this job should contain a curriculum vitae, a list of publications and a research statement plus three letters of recommendation. The material should be uploaded through Academic Jobs Online. Applications received before December 11 will receive full consideration. If you have any question about the details of this position please contact Enrico Pajer at the email address enricoDOTpajerATgmailDOTcom.
