The String Theory group at the Institut de Physique Théorique (IPhT) of CEA Saclay invites applications for postdoctoral positions in quantum gravity, quantum and conformal field theory, AdS/CFT and black hole physics.

The appointments will start in Fall 2022 for an initial period of two years, with a third year subject to performance evaluation and funds availability. The positions will be funded by the ERC Starting Grant ''Scattering Strings and Other Things: A Modern Approach to Quantum Gravity and the Conformal Bootstrap''.

Permanent members of the String Theory group include Iosif Bena, Mariana Graña, Monica Guica, Ruben Minasian, Eric Perlmutter, Pierre Vanhove and Nick Warner. Other members of the IPhT with overlapping interests include Brando Bellazzini, François David, Bertrand Eynard, Gregory Korchemsky, David Kosower, Ivan Kostov, Sylvain Ribault, Didina Serban and Raffaele Tito D'Agnolo. The IPhT has an active research environment spanning all areas of theoretical physics, a vibrant visitor and lecture program, and strongly-coupled interactions with the other physics institutes in the Paris area (http://string.lpthe.jussieu.fr).

Interested candidates are invited to submit an application by November 30 via the common European online postdoc interface:


On that form, applicants should indicate their preference for Saclay (IPhT).

Note: this position is distinct from https://academicjobsonline.org/ajo/jobs/20187. Interested candidates should apply for both positions.
