Positions available

  • A postdoctoral position is available within the European Research Council (ERC) funded project "Quantum Fields and Knot Homologies". The project is devoted to research at the interface of quantum field theory, string theory, knot theory and the theory of random matrices, and experience in some of those fields will be an asset. The project is based at the Faculty of Physics, University of Warsaw (Poland), and involves collaborations with renowned scientists at Caltech, University of California Davis, Institut de Physique Theorique (Saclay, France), and Instituto Superior Tecnico (Lisbon, Portugal). The appointment apart from a salary includes an annual research and travel expense fund. Application documents should include a curriculum vitae, a list of publications, a statement of research interest, a proposed starting date, and three letters of recommendation. Applications should be made through the joint postdoc applications initiative until November 30, 2016. In exceptional cases all documents, preferably in pdf format, can also be sent by e-mail to psulkows [at] fuw.edu.pl (with "ERC postdoc application" in the subject line). All inquiries in regards to this announcement should be sent to Dr. Piotr Sułkowski (psulkows [at] fuw.edu.pl).

  • Several postdoc and PhD positions in the area of biophysics and knotted/entangled proteins are available in our neighbours' lab.
