    Postdoctoral Position in Classical and Quantum Theory of Gravity,

    APCTP, Pohang, Korea:


    Applications are invited for one postdoctoral position in the Junior Research Group “Classical and Quantum Theory of Gravity” headed by Prof. Dong-han Yeom at the Asia Pacific Center for Theoretical Physics (APCTP), Pohang, Korea.


    APCTP (, founded in 1996, is a non-governmental organization aiming for an international center dedicated to excellence in research and the training of young scientists in the Asia-Pacific region. APCTP offers a great research environment with strong connections to a number of active theoretical and experimental research groups at the Pohang University of Science and Technology (POSTECH). APCTP has broad international agreements with many leading institutions around the globe for scientific exchanges.


    Research interests of this group include the following topics:

    Ø  Quantum gravity and quantum cosmology

    Ø  Quantum field theory in curved spacetime

    Ø  Early universe and inflationary cosmology

    Ø  Applications for physical cosmology, including CMB and gravitational wave physics

    In addition, we encourage applicants for broad interests of research topics, including various approaches to quantum gravitystring theoryquantum field theorymodified gravitygravitational physics, and cosmology. Especially, applicants with good numerical (computer programming) skills are highly recommended.


    The initial appointment is for one year and extendable up to two years depending on research performances and funding situations. The starting date of the appointment is negotiable but should be no ‘earlier’ than the 1st of September of 2018.
