The Kavli Institute for Theoretical Physics at the University of California, Santa Barbara expects to appoint Postdoctoral Scholars in theoretical physics, beginning September 1, 2017. Postdoctoral Scholar appointments are intended to provide a full-time training program of advanced academic preparation and research training under the mentorship of a faculty member. Minimum requirements: Completion of Ph.D. degree by the start date. Additional requirements: Outstanding research in theoretical physics appropriate to level of position, ability to identify and pursue research problems independently while working well in an interactive and dynamic setting. The initial appointment will be for two-years, with the possibility of renewal for a third year, contingent on continued funding and a reasonable level of research performance.
A detailed list of the KITP programs for 2017/2018 is available at:
