We are happy to announce that we are inviting applications for an STFC funded Postdoctoral position in the following area: the Dark Universe and Gravity, including dark matter (in particular primordial black holes, axion like particles and light scalar fields), dark energy and modified gravity (with particular emphasis on the cosmological constant problem, clockwork gravity and string cosmology).
The position is available from October 2024 on a fixed-term contract until 30th September 2026. Hours of work are full-time (36.25 hours); however, applications are also welcome from candidates wishing to work part-time (minimum 29 hours per week). Please specify in your application if you wish to work part time and the number of preferred hours. Job share arrangements may be considered.
If successful, you will have the opportunity to work with a diverse set of researchers in the Particle Cosmology and Astronomy groups in the School of Physics and Astronomy, and with the closely connected Gravity group in the School of Mathematical Sciences. You will also be a member of the Nottingham Centre of Gravity.
You will need to have, or be close to completion of, a PhD in physics or mathematics related to the subject and have a track record of academic publications in a related area to the research proposal at an appropriate level for the career stage. Applicants should submit a CV, publications list (if not included in the CV) and research proposal (up to 4 pages).
As part of our commitment to improving equality, diversity and inclusion within the school, shortlisted candidates will be given the opportunity to talk to a member of staff representing women, racially minoritised staff, LGBTQIA+ or disabilities communities. This will be separate to the assessment process and will play no role in the decision to appoint.
Informal enquiries may be addressed to Prof. Edmund Copeland, email: Ed.Copeland@nottingham.ac.uk. Please note that applications sent directly to this email address will not be accepted.
