Postdoc positions in the QFT and Strings group at ETH Zurich

Monday, 25 November, 2019

The groups led by Niklas Beisert and our member Matthias Gaberdiel at ETH Zurich invite applications for postdoc positions in theoretical or mathematical physics, starting in the autumn of 2020.

Positions are usually for two years, with the possibility of an extension to three years, depending on performance.

The research interests of the group include quantum field theory, quantum gravity, string theory, conformal field theory, integrability and scattering amplitudes. The group also maintains close connections to the group of our member Giovanni Felder in Mathematics.

To apply please submit a curriculum vitae, list of publications and statement of research interests electronically via the website jobs.itp.phys.ethz.ch/postdoc until 1 December 2019. Please also arrange for three letters of recommendation to be written on your behalf. Referees will be asked to upload the letters following your application.

Further information regarding the position or the application can be obtained from Niklas Beisert or Matthias Gaberdiel.
