Nordita, the Nordic Institute for Theoretical Physics, invites applications for post-doctoral fellowships in theoretical physics.
Appointments are for two years starting 1 September, 2022 or some other date to be agreed upon.
The fellowships are intended for scientists who wish to carry out research in fields represented at Nordita. Candidates working in other areas will be considered when it is scientifically justified. Since female scientists are underrepresented at Nordita we especially encourage women to apply.
The deadline for applications is 15 November, 2021, at 23.59 CET. No applications will be accepted after the deadline, but letters of recommendation may be submitted up to one week after.
Only online applications will be accepted. The application procedure is posted on academicjobsonline.org/ajo/jobs/19885.
Nordita was founded in 1957 in Copenhagen, Denmark, and was relocated to the AlbaNova University Center in Stockholm in January 2007 where it is jointly hosted by Stockholm University and KTH Royal Institute of Technology. Research at Nordita covers a wide range of modern theoretical physics including astrophysics, biological physics, condensed matter physics, gravitation, cosmology and astroparticle physics, high-energy physics, and statistical physics/complex systems. The research activity of the local academic staff is supplemented by Nordita Scientific Programs, which bring together groups of leading experts to work on specific topics for extended periods. There is also ample opportunity for collaboration with faculty and research staff at local universities.

We have two types of postdoc positions at Nordita.
The first kind, "Nordita fellows positions", are announced once a year with a deadline in November-December and start date the following autumn. Nordita fellows can pursue their research quite independently of our existing research groups, even though of course there is a lot of collaboration. There are typically 5-6 positions per year, all for two years.
Then we have "Nordita postdoc positions" announced within a particular project, typically connected with a grant. These postdocs are hired to work on that particular subject together with the other researchers in the corresponding group. The number of announced positions of this type is irregular, and depends on the ability of our senior staff to secure grants. The duration is typically two years but can vary, and start dates may also vary.
