atNordita, Nordic insitute of theoretical physics. Closing date: 21 January
Nordita, the Nordic Institute for Theoretical Physics, was founded in
Copenhagen, Denmark, in 1957. It moved to the AlbaNova University Center in
Stockholm, Sweden, in 2007, where it is jointly hosted by KTH Royal Institute
of Technology and Stockholm University. Research at Nordita covers a broad
range of theoretical physics including astrophysics, biophysics, condensed
matter physics, gravitation, cosmology and astroparticle physics, high-energy
physics, and statistical physics/complex systems. The research activity of the
local academic staff is supplemented by Nordita Scientific Programs, which
bring together groups of leading experts to work on specific topics for
extended periods. There is also ample opportunity for collaboration with
faculty and research staff at local universities. Further information about
Nordita can be found atwww. nordita.org.
The candidate should have a strong background in modern methods related to the
use of non-Lorentzian geometry and its applications to non-relativistic
corners of quantum field theory, gravity and string theory. The candidate is
expected to further develop this research field, including new perspectives
and approaches to nonrelativistic holography.
The position includes conducting a strong research program and interacting
with colleagues and visitors at Nordita, Stockholm University, KTH Royal
Institute of Technology, Uppsala University, and elsewhere in the Nordic
countries. The successful candidate is expected to spend significant time at
Nordita, Stockholm University and KTH, building connections between condensed
matter, astrophysics and high-energy groups.
Researchers are appointed primarily for purposes of research and must hold a
Swedish doctoral degree or an equivalent degree from another country.
Special importance is given to research expertise shown, for example, through
publications. The applicant's ability to establish and develop collaborations
both in research and education is of importance.
