Position Announcements for 2014



Associate Professor in Theoretical Particle Physics (tenured)


The Niels Bohr Institute invites applications for an associate professorship in theoretical particle physics in the Section of Theoretical Particle Physics and Cosmology.

We seek a scientist with a very strong proven record in theoretical particle physics in its broadest sense. The preference is towards quantum field theory, the Standard Model and beyond, gravity or string theory. The candidate should have an outstanding international reputation in his/her field of research as documented by a high level of original scientific production.

The section of Theoretical Particle Physics and Cosmology is involved in a wide scope of research activities centered around modern quantum field theory, modern string theory, gravity and cosmology. Research areas include the Standard Model and beyond, QCD, Supersymmetric Field Theories, Amplitude Calculations, the AdS/CFT correspondence, Black Holes, Causal Dynamical Triangulations, Physics of Cosmic Microwave Background and Neutrino Physics. For more detailed information se hetcosmo.nbi.dk. Section members are also involved in the Niels Bohr International Academy.

Inquiries about the position can be made to Prof. Robert Feidenhans'l (robert@nbi.ku.dk), Head of Department the Niels Bohr Institute or Prof. Charlotte Kristjansen (kristjan@nbi.ku.dk), Head of Section.

The position is open from April 1st , 2015 or as soon as possible thereafter.
To apply, use the electronic application system at http://employment.ku.dk/faculty/?show=681975
For details on how to apply follow the link "Apply now" at the address just given.

Application deadline: November 2nd, 2014.


PhD Position in Theoretical High Energy Physics


A PhD position in Theoretical High Energy Physics will be available with starting date between Oct 1st, and December 1st, 2014. The position is for three years and is associated to a Sapere Aude project entitled "Integrability and Beyond" directed by Charlotte Fløe Kristjansen, and funded jointly by the Danish Council for Independent Research and the Niels Bohr Institute.

The project theme is "particles versus strings in theoretical high energy and condensed matter physics". A major objective is to investigate various probe Dp-brane models and their dual defect conformal field theories with the aim of calculating observables of relevance for strongly coupled condensed matter systems. Furthermore, the possible role of integrability for such models will be analysed.

The successful candidate must hold a master degree in theoretical physics and have a good knowledge of quantum field theory, string theory and gravity. Some knowledge of the AdS/CFT correspondence and of integrability will be considered an advantage.

The PhD student will be member of the Theoretical Particle Physics and Cosmology group. PhD students form an integral part of the group, are expected to participate actively in all scientific activities (seminars, journal clubs, workshops etc.) and are also involved in other tasks, such as teaching exercise classes and maintaining our webpage. There are many possibilities for further advanced education. A number of advanced courses is regularly given (e.g. Advanced Quantum Field Theory, Advanced String Theory, Black Hole Physics, The AdS/CFT correspondence, Quantum Geometry). There is also support to participate in international PhD schools.

To apply, use the electronic application system at http://employment.ku.dk/phd/?show=676850. For details on how to apply follow the link "Apply now" at the address just given.

Application deadline: September 10th, 2014.

For further information contact Charlotte Fløe Kristjansen (kristjan@nbi.dk) at the Niels Bohr Institute.
