Leverhulme-Peierls Fellow

Applications for this vacancy closed on 13 October 2023 at 12:00PM
The Rudolf Peierls Centre for Theoretical Physics (RPC) at the University of
Oxford is pleased to invite applications for the Leverhulme-Peierls Fellows.
These prestigious, three-year postdoctoral fellowships were created in
conjunction with the appointment of Prof Shivaji Sondhi to the Wykeham and
Leverhulme Professorship of Physics, and are intended both to support the most
talented theoretical physicists worldwide at an early stage of their careers
and to enrich the intellectual environment of the Centre. It is envisaged that
up to three appointments will be made this year.





Fellows will receive active mentoring from members of the RPC but will be
encouraged and expected to set an independent research agenda in one or more
of the research areas of the Centre, broadly construed. To that end, they will
have access to substantial travel and research funds and participate fully in
the Centre’s vibrant programme of visitors and seminars. In conjunction with
their appointment, the Fellows will be associated with a college.





Candidates should be completing or have recently (i.e. normally within the
past 3 years) completed a doctorate in theoretical physics or a closely
related discipline. Applications must be made online. Candidates will be asked
to complete an Application Form, upload a CV and a two-page statement of their
research plans, and are encouraged, where appropriate, to identify members of
the RPC with overlapping research interests. Candidates must also arrange for
**one nomination letter** and **two supporting reference letters** to be sent
by email to RPCReferences@physics.ox.ac.uk. **The nomination letter should
make specific reference to the candidate ’s potential as an independent
researcher and be accessible to a general theoretical physics audience.** The
name of the nominator and the referees should be provided on the Cover Sheet.





All application materials including nomination and reference letters must be
received by noon on Friday October 13, 2023. Shortlisted candidates will be
invited to a remote visit and interview, to take place in early November.
Successful candidates will be notified by email by November 30, 2023.
