Princeton University - Princeton, NJ (30+ days ago)4.3


The Princeton Gravity Initiative is seeking exceptional recent Ph.D. recipients in theoretical gravitational theory for an honorific postdoctoral fellowship program. The Princeton Gravity Initiative is a new collaborative effort between Princeton University's Astrophysics, Mathematics, and Physics Departments to explore the fundamental nature of gravity; see https://gravity.princeton.edu for more information. Candidates from all areas of research focusing upon gravitational theory, including gravitational wave astrophysics, mathematical relativity, early universe cosmology, and quantum gravity, will be considered.

These appointments will be at the rank of Associate Research Scholar. Several positions will be available. The appointments will be annual with the expectation of renewal for two additional years subject to satisfactory performance.

Candidates must apply only at https://www.princeton.edu/acad-positions/position/8781 and submit a CV, list of publications, a statement of research interests, and the contact information for three referees. To ensure full consideration, all materials, including letters of reference, must be received by November 15, 2018. For more information, contact Frans Pretorius at fpretori@princeton.edu.
