    • Postdoctoral position in String Theory

      The string theory group of the Department of Particle Physics of the University of Santiago and IGFAE invites applications for a two-year postdoctoral position starting not later than October 2016. The lines of research that our group is interested are the following
      • AdS/CFT, AdS/CMT, Flavor Physics, T-duality.
      • Holographic quark gluon plasma, thermalisation, time dependent numerical gravity.
      • Higher derivative gravity and causality. Memory effects.
      • Integrability and strings quantization on curved backgrounds.

      Candidates should submit a CV, a list of publications and a statement of research interests. They should also arrange for, at least, two letters of recommendation. All application material must be submitted online at the website:

      The deadline for the applications is November 30, 2015
