Here you will find any information about current job vacancies at the Centre for Theoretical Cosmology. We may also, from time to time, post details of relevant positions within other groups or centres at DAMTP.
Postdoctoral Research Associates in Theoretical Cosmology and General Relativity
Limit of tenure applies*
A PDF of this advert can be found here.
Applications are invited for a number of postdoctoral positions from candidates qualified to undertake research in the following areas:
- Two positions in Theoretical Cosmology, funded by an ERC grant or an STFC consolidated grant. One position is likely to be filled by a candidate with expertise in early universe and inflationary perturbation theory, while for the second position we hope to attract candidates working on related connections to observational cosmology (particularly the CMB and large-scale structure). Start date on or before 1 October 2014. Limit of tenure 2-3 years from start date.
- One position to work on General Relativity, funded by an STFC consolidated grant, which will focus on modelling of astrophysical compact objects as sources of gravitational waves in the framework of GR and alternative theories of gravity. Candidates should have a good track record in one or more of the following areas: gravitational wave source modelling and astrophysics, numerical relativity, computational fluid dynamics, alternative theories of gravity, stellar collapse and black holes. Start date on or before 1 October 2014. Limit of tenure 2-3 years from start date.
Applications should be submitted online at:
Applicants should have a PhD in theoretical physics or equivalent. They should indicate their areas of interest but there is no need to submit multiple applications if more than one of the above positions are of interest.
Deadline for applications: 12 December 2013.
* Limit of tenure for the positions funded by the ERC grants is 2 years. Limit of tenure for the posts funded by the consolidated grant is up to 3 years.
