2013 Perimeter Institute Postdoctoral Fellowships

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, quantum fields and  
strings, quantum foundations, quantum information and quantum gravity. We  
also encourage applications from scientists whose work overlap these  
categories or falls in more than one of them. 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.

We welcome all candidates to apply by November 16, 2012, however  
applications will be considered until all positions are filled.

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 independent young theorists and offer exceptional support  
including a generous research and travel fund, opportunities to invite  
their own collaborators as visitors, and the possibility of organizing  
workshops and conferences.

Perimeter Institute is located west of Toronto, in Waterloo, Canada and  
was founded in September 1999 as an independent Institute supporting  
research in foundational areas of theoretical physics. The Institute  
offers an exceptional research environment and is currently staffed with  
32 full-time and part-time faculty members, 26 Distinguished Research  
Chairs, 42 Postdoctoral Researchers, 31 Graduate Students, 30 exceptional  
Masters level students participating in Perimeter Scholars International,  
and hosts hundreds of visitors and conference participants throughout the  
academic year.

Applicants should submit: curriculum vitae, a statement of research  
interests, a list of publications and arrange for at least three letters  
of reference to be sent on their behalf. Applications (including  
recommendation letters) must be submitted through Perimeter Institute's  
online application form.

Perimeter Institute is an equal opportunity employer. All qualified  
candidates are encouraged to apply; however applications from women and  
minorities are especially welcome.
