Postdoctoral Research Fellow in High Energy Theoretical Physics:
Simons Fellow in Celestial Holography
About the Opportunity
The Postdoctoral Research Fellow will conduct research on the
interface of high energy theory, general relativity and
mathematical physics, focusing on celestial holography and related
topics, including conformal field theory, AdS/CFT, amplitudes and
symmetries of asymptotically flat spacetime.
This position is funded by the Simons Collaboration on Celestial
Holography, made up of 13 PIs at 10 institutions around the world.
The position carries with it the benefit of substantial
opportunities for travel and scientific interaction. This includes
funded travel to Collaboration meetings, workshops, and schools, as
well as the potential for intra-collaboration research
Performs basic or applied research of a limited scope, primarily
using existing theories and methods. Assists the supervisor in the
interpretation and publication of results and grants. Primary
responsibility is ensuring that the research is complete.
Must have a Ph.D. in Physics or related field; be able to undertake
substantially full-time research or scholarship; work under the
supervision of a senior scholar. Solid background in high energy
theoretical and mathematical physics including, but not limited to,
quantum field theory and general relativity.
