Two Postdocs of Theoretical High-Energy Physics, Niels Bohr Institute

Updated: about 1 month ago
Deadline: 15 May 2021

Faculty of Science

University of Copenhagen

We plan to fill two postdoc positions:

The first position is in the field of integrability and scattering amplitudes in gauge theories. The ideal candidate has recently or will soon complete the PhD and has a background in Yangian symmetry, non-planar integrability and phenomenological aspects of scattering amplitudes. The positions is open for 36 months.

The second position is in the field of the formal study of the structure of scattering amplitudes in gauge theories. The ideal candidate has previous experience as a postdoc and has a background in the study of Regge limitsof scattering amplitudes as well as elliptic and Calabi-Yau functions that occur in scattering amplitudes beyond polylogarithms, alsowith respect phenomenological applications. The position is open for 24 months

The postdoc’s duties will include research within the field of scattering amplitudes (in the case of the first position also in the field of integrability) as well as teaching. The post may also include performance of other duties.

Further information on the Department is linked at https://www.science.ku.dk/english/about-the-faculty/organisation/ . Inquiries about the position can be made to Matthias Wilhelm.

The positions is open from September 1st 2021or as soon as possible thereafter.
