Job description:

The Physics Laboratory at Ecole Normale Supérieure de Lyon (LPENSL) and the Institut de Physique des Deux Infinies (IP2I), are seeking applications for a joint postdoctoral fellow position in theoretical high energy physics, financed by the LabEx “Institut des origines de Lyon (LIO)”. The position will involve studies of models in string theory and quantum gravity including, but not limited to, topics such as holography and AdS/CFT, supergravity, string/M-theory and matrix models. The appointment is for two years.

Required job qualifications:

Applicants must hold a PhD or equivalent degree in physics by start date, and have research experience in theoretical high energy physics.

Application procedure:

The application should include a curriculum vitae, a research statement and three reference letters sent separately. All documents should be sent by email to the following address:

Research applications will start being reviewed on December 14, until the position is filled.

The theoretical physics research activities of the LPENSL and IP2I groups cover a large range of subjects in quantum gravity, string/M-theory and supergravity. More information can be found at:
