Three Postdoctoral Research Assistants in ‘The Analytic Conformal Bootstrap’

We invite applications for three Postdoctoral Research Assistant positions to work with Professor Luis Fernando Alday at the Mathematical Institute, University of Oxford. These are three year fixed-term positions and funded by ERC.

The successful candidates will be part of a team exploring and developing different aspects of conformal field theories, and their broad range of applications, with emphasis on analytic results.

The successful candidates will work under the supervision of Professor Luis Fernando Alday but will be encouraged to interact with each other and other members of the Mathematical Institute and Theoretical Physics team. In addition, the team will also be composed by two D.Phil. students. Furthermore, regular visits from and to external collaborators are foreseen.

The successful applicants will be expected to have, or be close to completing, a PhD in an area related to theoretical or mathematical physics. They will possess sufficient specialist knowledge in the discipline to work within established research programmes with the ability to manage their own academic research and associated activities.
