Position Description:    

*** The account for Institute of Theoretical Physics, University of Amsterdam has expired, and no new applications will be accepted. ***

The Amsterdam Cosmology Group (ACG) invites applications for two postdoctoral fellowships starting in the Fall of 2019. Preference will be given to researchers with a strong track record in the field of Theoretical Cosmology broadly defined. The positions are under the supervision of Prof. Daniel Baumann.

The ACG currently consists of four faculty members (Daniel Baumann, Ben Freivogel, Marieke Postma, Jan-Pieter van der Schaar), five postdocs and nine PhD students. The group is part of Institute of Physics (IoP) of the University of Amsterdam (UvA) and the Delta Institute for Theoretical Physics (D-ITP). The members of our group are interested in a wide range of topics in theoretical cosmology ranging from the dynamics of the early universe to the formation of large-scale structures in the late universe. The successful applicants would be embedded in a vibrant research environment at the IoP, which includes very active groups in high-energy physics (ITFA) and astroparticle physics (GRAPPA). Further information can be found on the ACG website:

The successful applicant will be free to pursue his/her own research program and/or collaborate with any of the faculty, postdocs and students in the group on topics of mutual interest.

Applications for this job should contain a curriculum vitae, a list of publications and a research statement plus three letters of recommendation. The material should be uploaded through Academic Jobs Online. Applications received before December 7 will receive full consideration. For informal enquiries about the positions please contact Prof. Daniel Baumann (dbaumann[at]uva[dot]nl).
