Postdoctoral Opportunities in “Charting Fundamental Interactions”

October 9, 2018

We expect one or more openings according to funding availability in one of the following fields of theoretical physics: renormalisation group equations, (Supersymmetric) CFTs, phase diagram of theories of fundamental interactions, higher order computations, numerical methods for fundamental interactions, flavour physics, dark matter, and/or effective field theories at the Centre for Cosmology and Particle Physics Phenomenology (CP3-Origins) at the University of Southern Denmark in Odense. We are looking for outstanding and highly competitive candidates with a demonstrated potential to excel in research.

The prospective candidate will work in the group of Francesco Sannino that already counts several PhD students, postdocs and assistant professors funded by several national and intra-national research agencies. The candidate will also benefit from several extensive workshops, schools, our immense research network as well as an already established vigorous visitor programme covering all the aspects of the research project envisioned.

CP³-Origins is a centre of excellence established by the Danish National Research Foundation, dedicated to the understanding of the origins of bright and dark matter in the universe, as well as to the understanding of the mathematical underpinning of gauge theories of fundamental interactions. At the moment it contains eleven faculty members and several postdocs and PhD students in the areas of particle physics phenomenology, beyond standard model physics, astroparticle physics, lattice field theory, and cosmology. CP³-Origins offers an extremely dynamical and exciting work environment. We have close collaborations with leading scientists in Europe and the US and the centre is one of the cornerstones of our physics research program.

The appointment will be for a term of two to three years, depending on the candidate’s background, at a very competitive salary and is expected to start in the fall of 2019. We are happy to receive your expressions of interest all year long. However, full consideration will be given to enquiries received before the 7th of December every year
