Postdoctoral Research Associate in Scattering Amplitudes

Applications are invited for a three-year Postdoctoral Research Associate position at the Higgs Centre for Theoretical Physics, to work on the mathematical structure of multi-loop scattering amplitudes and on the development of bootstrap methods for computing them.

Salary range: £35,333 to £42,155 (UE07) per annum

The Opportunity:

This position is funded by Dr. Andrew McLeods's Royal Society University Research Fellowship (URF\R1\221233) entitled “Harnessing the Structure of Scattering Amplitudes”. Research activities include developing a better understanding of the mathematical structure of scattering amplitudes and developing more efficient methods for their computation.
