Nordita, the Nordic Institute for Theoretical Physics in Stockholm, Sweden, invites applications for post-doctoral fellowships in theoretical physics. The deadline for applications is November 15, 2012. Appointments are for two years starting September 1, 2013 or some other date to be agreed upon. The fellowships are intended for scientists who have a recent PhD, completed less than 5 years before the starting date of the fellowship, and wish to carry out research in fields represented at Nordita. Candidates working in other areas will be considered when it is scientifically justified.
Nordita was founded in 1957 in Copenhagen, Denmark, but was relocated to the AlbaNova University Center in Stockholm in January 2007, where it is jointly hosted by Stockholm University and the Royal Institute of Technology (KTH). Research at Nordita covers a wide range of modern theoretical physics including astrophysics and astrobiology, atomic physics, biological physics, condensed matter physics, gravitation and cosmology, high-energy physics, nuclear physics, and statistical physics. 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. Further information about Nordita can be found at http://www.nordita.org
