|The Institut de Physique Theorique (IPhT) of CEA-Saclay (France) and University Paris-Saclay invites applications for one or more ERC funded postdoctoral positions in the context of John Joseph Carrasco's project 'preQFT: Strategic Predictions for Quantum Field Theories.' [ http://cordis.europa.eu/project/rcn/193668_en.html ] Candidates with experience and continued interest in multiloop scattering amplitudes in either formal or phenomenological gauge or gravity field theories (and/or open and closed string theory), classical Yang-Mills and General Relativity solutions (analytic or numeric), or applications of perturbative field theory techniques to cosmological / astrophysical predictions are especially encouraged to apply.
Carrasco's preQFT grant funds a new working group at IPhT engaged with theoretically motivated calculations, especially in scattering amplitudes, but also open to other sharply predictive issues in theoretical particle physics, quantum gravity, general relativity and cosmology.
The Institute is located approx. 20km southwest of Paris along the RER B line, also with dedicated commuter buses to and from various locations in Paris. Any appointment is intended to start between Jun-Dec of 2017 and will typically be fixed to 2+1 years.
Applications must be submitted electronically and include a cover letter, CV (including a full list of publications) and statement of research interests. Applicants should arrange for at least three reference letters to be submitted to Academic Jobs Online.
Review begins: 8th December 2016.
