The Kavli Institute for Theoretical Physics (KITP) at the University of California, Santa Barbara expects to appoint Postdoctoral Scholars in theoretical physics, beginning September 1, 2019. Postdoctoral Scholar appointments are intended to provide a full-time training program of advanced academic preparation and research training under the mentorship of a faculty member. Minimum requirements: Completion of Ph.D. degree by the start date. Additional requirements: Outstanding research in theoretical physics appropriate to level of position and ability to identify and pursue research problems independently while working in KITP’s uniquely collaborative setting. The initial appointment will be for two-years, with the possibility of renewal for a third year, contingent on continued funding and a reasonable level of research performance.
The application must consist of a curriculum vita, publication list,
statement of research interests, and three letters of reference.
Apply by November 15, 2018 for primary consideration. Later applications will be considered only as long as openings exist.
The department is especially interested in candidates who can contribute to the diversity and excellence of the academic community through research, teaching and service.
The University of California is an Equal Opportunity/Affirmative Action Employer and all qualified applicants will receive consideration for employment without regard to race, color, religion, sex, sexual orientation, gender identity, national origin, disability status, protected veteran status, or any other characteristic protected by law.
