Positions available

  • A postdoctoral position (for one year) is available within the project “Random matrix models”, in the “Team” program funded by the Foundation for Polish Science under the Smart Growth Operational Programme. This is an interdisciplinary project, aiming to develop the theory of matrix models and topological recursions, to understand their role in modern aspects of mathematical physics, and to employ such tools to formulate new topological and combinatorial characteristics of biomolecules. Experience of a candidate in the field of random matrix theory, topological recursions, and their applications in high energy or mathematical physics – or experience of a candidate in theoretical aspects of biophysics and various programming techniques – will be an asset. A successful candidate should hold the PhD degree not longer than 4 years. Candidates may also be invited for an interview in the second round of applications. Preferably the position is to be filled sooner than later (e.g. winter/spring 2021). All inquiries in regards to this announcement should be sent to Piotr Sułkowski (psulkows [at] fuw.edu.pl). The candidates have to conform to the conditions stated in art. 113 of Higher Education Law dated 20.07.2018 (Journal of Laws of the Republic of Poland 2020, item 85 with further amendments).

    All the documents required for the Joint Postdoc Application (select Warsaw as their preferred choice):
    https://itf.fys.kuleuven.be/postdoc-application/

    In addition, later upon request, candidates will be required to send:
    1. Application for the position.
    2. Information on the processing of personal data – information clause and consent clause – attachment to the announcement (available on the website http://bsp.adm.uw.edu.pl/bsp/druki-i-formularze/).
    3. Statement on reading and accepting the rules for job applications for a position of an academic teacher at the University of Warsaw (available on the website https://www.fuw.edu.pl/dokumenty-i-formularze.html).
    4. A PhD diploma (a formal confirmation of PhD degree or expected date
    of graduation).
    (For documents 1-4 please use the pdf-format and files 1-3 should contain a scanned signature.)
    A successful candidate should submit originals of application documents.

    The candidate should apply for the position via the Joint Postdoc Application system: https://itf.fys.kuleuven.be/postdoc-application/ and send the documents by the deadline of 30.11.2020 as well as select Warsaw as their preferred choice. The entire procedure will be concluded not earlier than 07.01.2021. All candidates will be informed individually (by e-mail) about the results of their application.

  • A full-time postdoctoral position (24 months) is available in the project NCN Sonata-Bis 9: “Quantum Information in Quantum Field Theories and Holography: Dynamics and Complexity”. The project is focused on exploring the AdS/CFT correspondence from the perspective of quantum information and quantum computation in quantum field theories. A successful candidate is expected to conduct research on dynamics of entanglement and complexity in quantum field theories and AdS/CFT. All inquiries in regard to this position should be sent to Pawel Caputa (pcaputa [at] fuw.edu.pl). The candidates have to conform to the conditions stated in art. 113 of Higher Education Law dated 20.07.2018 (Journal of Laws of the Republic of Poland 2018, item 1668 with further amendments).
