2021 Postdoctoral Fellowship
Each year Perimeter Institute for Theoretical Physics invites applications for postdoctoral positions, including named fellowships, from new and recent PhDs working in fundamental theoretical physics.
There will be four Simons Bridge for Postdoctoral Fellowships available with one fellowship in each of the following research areas: Quantum Fields & Strings, Cosmology, Particle Physics, and Quantum Matter. These positions have a duration of two years (with a possible extension to a third year).
Research areas at Perimeter include: particle physics, quantum condensed matter, cosmology, classical gravity, mathematical physics, quantum fields and strings, quantum foundations, quantum information, and quantum gravity. Importantly, research at Perimeter focuses on the intersections of those research areas.
Most postdoctoral positions are offered for a period of three years. You may also be eligible for a named four-year postdoctoral fellowship including the Jocelyn Bell Burnell, Stephen Hawking, and Chien-Shiung Wu fellowships. Senior five-year fellowships are also available. Fellowships may, in addition, be offered jointly between Perimeter and partner institutes and universities.
Applications are due November 9, 2020, however, applications submitted after this date will be considered until all positions are filled. Referees may also continue to submit their references past this deadline.
