Position Description:    

Four or more postdoctoral positions in theoretical physics at the Department of Physics and Astronomy, Uppsala University, starting 2017/09/01, or later as agreed upon.

The postdoctoral positions are part of several projects and grants funded by the Knut and Alice Wallenberg Foundation, the European Research Council and the Swedish Research Council. Applicants are expected to conduct research in theoretical physics related to quantum field theory and string theory. Research areas of particular interest include (but are not restricted to): supersymmetry, gauge/gravity duality, integrability, scattering amplitudes in super-Yang-Mills and supergravity, cosmology, and string phenomenology.

Employment will initially be for 2 years, with the possibility of extension for a third year.

The applicant must hold a PhD degree in theoretical physics or an equivalent title. While all applications will be considered, candidates who received their PhD in the past three years are especially encouraged to apply.

The application should contain a cover letter mentioning the applicant’s research area, a CV, a brief research statement, and a publication list. The applicant should arrange to have two letters of recommendation submitted through AcademicJobsOnline.

Additionally it is imperative that all materials in the application, except the letters of recommendation, be submitted by Dec 15th 2016 to the Uppsala University website which can be reached from this page: It is not necessary to have the letters of recommendation sent to the email address listed in the Uppsala University website if they are available on AcademicJobsOnline.

Uppsala university is striving for greater gender balance in its research and teaching staff. Applications from female candidates are especially encouraged.
