The Theoretical Particle/Cosmology/Gravity group at Johns Hopkins University expects to make several postdoc appointments. The group consists of faculty members Ibrahima Bah, Emanuele Berti, Marc Kamionkowski, David Kaplan, Jared Kaplan, and Surjeet Rajendran, and roughly 10 postdocs and 20 students. Research in the group is conducted in a broad array of subjects including formal field theory, phenomenology, particle astrophysics, physical and early-Universe cosmology, astrophysics, relativity, and gravitational waves.

In particular, we are seeking to fill one position in formal field theory with Prof. Ibrahima Bah (as part of the Simons Collaboration on Global Categorical Symmetries;; another in particle theory with Profs. David Kaplan and Surjeet Rajendran; and another in cosmology (and related areas) with Prof. Marc Kamionkowski. We may also be able to make additional appointments in gravitational-wave astrophysics, general relativity, or other related areas of physics.

We seek intellectually ambitious candidates with initiative and the ability to work both collaboratively and independently in a vibrant and interactive group. The theory group is part of the Physics and Astronomy Department at Johns Hopkins University and interacts with observers and experimentalists in an array of areas of particle physics, gravity, cosmology, and astrophysics. We also benefit from close interactions with the adjacent Space Telescope Science Institute.

Applications should consist of a CV, list of publications, summary of research interests, and three letters of recommendation, submitted to AcademicJobsOnline ( Applications will be due December 1st, 2021. A Ph.D. in physics or astronomy is required. Johns Hopkins is an affirmative action/equal opportunity employer, and welcomes applications from women and members of underrepresented groups.
