Perimeter Institute is now accepting applications for 3- and 5-year postdoc positions to start Fall 2016. After having been here a year, I can tell you that PI is amazing. This is the greatest place for fundamental physics research in the world. Stop working on problems that someone else would do anyway and come tackle the big questions with me!
Perimeter Institute for Theoretical Physics invites applications for postdoctoral positions from new and recent PhDs working in fundamental theoretical physics. Our areas of strength include classical gravity, condensed matter theory, cosmology, particle physics, mathematical physics, quantum fields and strings, quantum foundations, quantum information, and quantum gravity. We also encourage applications from scientists whose work falls in more than one of these categories. Our postdoctoral positions are normally for a period of three years. Outstanding candidates may also be considered for a senior postdoctoral position with a five-year term.
Perimeter Institute offers a dynamic, multi-disciplinary environment with maximum research freedom and opportunity to collaborate within and across fields. Our postdoctoral positions are intended for highly original and intellectually adventurous young theorists. Perimeter offers comprehensive support including a generous research and travel fund, opportunities to invite visiting collaborators, and help in organizing workshops and conferences. A unique mentoring system gives early-career scientists the feedback and support they need to flourish as independent researchers.
The Institute offers an exceptional research environment and is currently staffed with 40 full-time and part-time faculty members, 42 Distinguished Visiting Research Chairs, 55 Postdoctoral Researchers, 47 Graduate Students, and 28 exceptional master’s-level students participating in Perimeter Scholars International. Perimeter also hosts hundreds of visitors and conference participants throughout the academic year.
