Postdoctoral Position in Theoretical Particle Physics

Job Description

The Department of Mathematical Sciences at Durham University invites applications for a two year postdoctoral position in the area of holography, in the Centre for Particle Theory, to begin in October 2017. The position is funded by an STFC consolidated grant in “Particles, Strings and Cosmology”. Candidates with strong track records in holography, string theory, cosmology, elementary particle theory, and related areas are encouraged to apply. Applications are particularly welcome from women and black and minority ethnic candidates, who are under-represented in academic posts in the University. The position involves working with members of the Maths CPT group and independently further our research in this area.

Deadline: 2 January 2017

Alumni/careers Videoconference is a success

On Wednesday 15th June 2016, five of our former students gave up some of their time (thanks to their current employers) to tell a group of our current undergraduates about their careers. They were also put on the spot, answering questions ranging from second year module choices to working hours.

Athena SWAN Bronze

The Department of Mathematical Sciences is delighted to announce it has been awarded Athena SWAN Bronze in the most recent round of applications. The application was led by Professor Paul Mansfield, and supported by a diverse self-assessment team consisting of academic staff, a retired School Master, postdocs, graduate students and undergraduate students of both genders. We have come a long way in the last three years, increasingly reflecting on gender issues in STEMM subjects, and we plan to continue to improve the quality of our working environment so that it is truly inclusive, for academics, students and administrative staff alike. We wish to thank all who helped us and will help us on the journey ahead.
