Position Announcements for 2013




Two postdoctoral positions in theoretical high energy physics at the NBI


Two two-year postdoctoral positions in the theoretical high energy group at the Niels Bohr Institute in Copenhagen will be available starting in the Fall of 2014.

Postdoc position 1 is associated with the project "Duality and Integrability" directed by Charlotte Kristjansen and funded by the Danish Council for Independent Research (Natural Sciences). Applicants should have a strong background in quantum field theory, string theory and the AdS/CFT correspondence and an interest in Integrability.

Postdoc position 2 is associated with the project "New horizons in particle and condensed matter physics from black holes" directed by Niels Obers and funded by the Danish Council for Independent Research (Natural Sciences) and the Niels Bohr International Academy. Applicants should have a strong background in string theory, quantum field theory, black hole physics and the gauge/gravity correspondence.

Applications should be submitted via this application form, which is part of a web-based postdoc application procedure used by a group of institutes in Europe. The deadline for application is Dec. 1st, 2013. In order to indicate special interest in position 1 or 2, candidates are invited to send a short email to Charlotte Kristjansen (kristjan AT nbi.dk) or Niels Obers (obers AT nbi.dk) respectively. In addition, for local administrative reasons, we request applicants to upload their application also at the AJO listing of the NBIA.

PhD position in theoretical high energy physics


A PhD position in theoretical high energy physics will be available with starting date Oct 1st, 2013. The position is for three years and is associated to the project "New horizons in particle and condensed matter physics from black holes" directed by Niels Obers, and funded jointly by the Danish Research Council and the Niels Bohr Institute.

The project aims at further developing recent insights into black hole physics and effective methods to describe their dynamics, as well as using these advances in a holographic setting to study new applications in particle and condensed matter physics.

The successful candidate must hold a master degree in theoretical physics and preferably have a good knowledge of gravity, string theory and quantum field theory.

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) and further topical PhD courses at the NBI, while there is also support to participate in international PhD schools.

For further information contact N. Obers at the Niels Bohr Institute.
