Postdoctoral position funded by the "Atracción de Talento" grant

Kind of offer: 

The Quantum Fields, Gravity and Strings group at the IFT UAM-CSIC in Madrid (Spain) welcomes applications for one 3-year postdoctoral position funded by the "Atracción de Talento" grant (2019-T1/T1C-15568, Paolo Benincasa) awarded by the Madrid Regional Government.

The research will move at edge of the fields of scattering amplitudes, cosmology and holography, and the candidates are expected to have expertise in at least one of the following topics: scattering amplitudes, positive geometries, quantum field theory in flat and curved space-times, CFTs, holography and theoretical cosmology.

The IFT can count on a vibrant environment, with experts in all the three fields touched by the research line of this position (see ). IFT is an equal-opportunity institution, and all qualified candidates will be considered for employment without regards of ethnicity, nationality, sex, sexual orientation, gender identity, disability status or any other

Applications can be submitted online at and should include a CV, a research statement, a publication list and two or three reference letters. Also, candidates interested in this position should select "strings/gravity" as "field of interest" and "AmplitudesMeetCosmo" as one of the keywords. The deadline for applications is December the 1st 2020 (included) and the position will start at latest on September the 1st 2021, with an earlier start which can be negotiated. It is also recommended that candidates have their PhD awarded before June the 30th 2021.
