Postdoctoral position in Theoretical High Energy Physics


The Department of Physics of the University of Notre Dame announces a two-year postdoctoral position in Theoretical High Energy Physics to begin in Fall 2019. The position is renewable for a third year contingent on funding and performance.

The Notre Dame High Energy faculty includes Delgado, Kolda & Martin in theory, and Hildreth, Jessop, Lannon, LoSecco, Ruchti & Wayne in experiment. The group shares many interests in common with Notre Dame's astrophysics and cosmology group. The group also maintains close ties to its neighboring institutions in Chicago and the greater Michigan-Indiana-Illinois region.

Applicants should submit (electronically) a curriculum vitae, including a list of publications and a statement of research interests, and arrange to have letters of recommendation sent by three senior physicists. These correspondences should be submitted by November 30, 2018 in order to receive full attention.
