3 years postdoctoral position in theoretical physics at Tata Institute of Fundamental Research, Mumbai.

Post by rishi khatri » October 23 2018

The department of Theoretical Physics at Tata Institute of Fundamental Research, Mumbai invites applications for multiple postdoctoral positions in the broad area of Theoretical Physics including Cosmology, Astrophysics and Astroparticle physics. Appointments will be for one year and can be renewed for a maximum up to three years. Benefits in addition to the salary include medical support inside the campus and possibly on campus housing. Candidates must have submitted their PhD thesis before the expected joining date of 1 Sept 2019.

Candidates with more than one year of postdoctoral experience and with exceptional academic records will be considered for a prestigious Jawaharlal Nehru postdoctoral fellowship.

The Cosmology and Astroparticle Physics (CAP) faculty members (Basudeb Dasgupta, Rishi Khatri, Girish Kulkarni and Subhabrata Majumdar) are working on diverse areas of astroparticle physics and cosmology, e.g., neutrino astrophysics, particle cosmology, dark matter physics, Cosmological simulations, reionization, 21cm cosmology, cosmic microwave background anisotropies and spectral distortions, large scale structure, clusters of galaxies, distribution of dark matter in the Milky Way, and cosmological surveys. More information about our research can be found at the following links.


In addition to the department resources, postdocs selected in CAP group will have funding for research and travel through the Max Planck Partner groups.

Successful candidates will carry out research at the Theoretical Physics department and will have opportunities to collaborate with the members of the department, who work in topics including cosmology and astroparticle physics, condensed matter and statistical physics, electroweak particle physics, strong interaction physics including lattice QCD, and string theory and mathematical physics.

Deadline is November 15th, 2018. Applicants need to apply via Academic Jobs Online (AJO), with covering letter, full CV, list of publications, and a statement of research interests.
