Postdoctoral Position in Statistical Physics (Indo-French CEFIPRA program)

A postdoctoral position for two years is available for a candidate (Indian citizen) in statistical physics at Universite Paris-Sud, Orsay (at laboratoire de physique théorique et modèles statisques (LPTMS)). This position starts in the fall of 2012. The deadline for the application is February, 29, 2012.

The candidate is expected to carry out research in a broad area of statistical physics including stochastic processes with applications in non-equilibrium systems, the statics and dynamics in disordered systems etc. The candidate is expected to have broad interests in statistical physics with analytical and numerical expertise.

This position is part of the joint project supported by Indo-French Centre for the Promotion of Advanced Research/Centre Franco-Indien pour la Promotion de la Recherche Avancée (IFCPAR/CEFIPRA) grant 4604-3, and will include strong collaborations with three Institutes in India: Tata Institute of Fundamental Research (Mumbai), Raman Research Institute (Bangalore) and Saha Institute of Nuclear Physics (Kolkata) and also with the Institut de Physique Theorique (Ipht) of Saclay.

Applications including a CV, a list of publications, a brief description of past research and future interests should be sent to Claudine Le Vaou by email at the secretariat.lptms@lptms.u-psud.fr Applicants should also arrange for three letters of recommendation to be sent to the same address.
