Cambridge: Postdoc in foundations of field theories

From Jeremy Butterfield:

Applications are invited for a 3 year post doctoral fellowship, funded by the John Templeton Foundation, to be held in Department of Applied Mathematics and Theoretical Physics (DAMTP), University of Cambridge, from 1 July 2012 or as soon as possible thereafter.

The post is for research in the foundations of field theories, both classical and quantum, and especially their geometric aspects; primarily in one or more of these areas: the classical geometric underpinning of quantum field theory; topological solitons ; duality transformations.

Applicants with foundational interests in quantum field theory that fall outside these areas will also be considered. The post will be held in the Centre for Quantum Information and Foundations, at DAMTP.

The closing date is Monday 23 April (noon). Interviews will be held on Thursday 26 April and Friday 27 April, at DAMTP. The reference number is: LE14871
