Postdoctoral Fellow in Fundamental Theory - Department of Physics

Postdoctoral Fellow in Fundamental Theory - Department of Physics

Stockholm University

Stockholm, Sweden

Project description

The project “Holographic spacetimes from simple quantum theories” led by Professor Bo Sundborg aims to use AdS/CFT, or more generally gauge/gravity duality, to derive quantum physics of geometry from quantum field theory. The physics of black holes, worm holes, domain walls, and primordial cosmology, all of independent interest, constitute test beds and motivation for these ideas.

Main responsibilities

  • Research in the field indicated by the project description, or relevant to this field.

Qualification requirements

  • Postdoctoral positions are appointed primarily for purposes of research. Applicants are expected to hold a Swedish doctoral degree or an equivalent degree from another country;
  • Qualified applicants holds a PhD in theoretical physics.

Assessment criteria

The PhD degree should have been completed no more than three years before the deadline for applications. An older degree may be acceptable under certain circumstances.

In the appointment process, special attention will be given to research skills and experience in one or several fields related to the project, e.g. QFT, theoretical gravity, higher spin theory, CFT, bootstrap, correlation functions, inflation, scattering, and interest in connections between these fields. The research proposal can be important in this assessment.
