The String Theory group at the Institut de Physique Théorique (IPhT) of CEA Saclay invites applications for multiple postdoctoral positions in quantum gravity, quantum field theory and AdS/CFT, funded by the following ERC grants:
** "Deconstructing the string landscape" (Mariana Graña)
** ''Scattering Strings and Other Things: A Modern Approach to Quantum Gravity and the Conformal Bootstrap'' (Eric Perlmutter)
** "The Quantum Structure of Black Holes and the Recovery of Information" (Nick Warner)
The appointments will start in Fall 2021 for an initial period of two years, with a third year subject to performance evaluation and funds availability.
Permanent members of the String Theory group include Iosif Bena, Mariana Graña, Monica Guica, Ruben Minasian, Eric Perlmutter, Pierre Vanhove and Nick Warner. The group maintains close contact with members of the scattering amplitudes group (Gregory Korchemsky, David Kosower) and the Mathematical Physics group (François David, Bertrand Eynard, Ivan Kostov, Sylvain Ribault, Didina Serban), as well as the Physics Beyond the Standard Model, Cosmology, Nuclear and Statistical Physics groups.
The IPhT has a very active research environment spanning all areas of theoretical physics, a vibrant visitor program, and strongly-coupled interactions with the other physics institutes in the Paris area (http://string.lpthe.jussieu.fr).
Interested candidates are invited to submit an application by November 30 via the common European online postdoc interface:
