The Department of Applied Mathematics and Theoretical Physics of the University of Cambridge invites applications for up to 3 Postdoctoral Research Associate positions in Relativity, Gravitation and Cosmology. The theoretical and computational projects of direct relevance for these posts include: developing methods for testing General Relativity using gravitational waves with a focus on using effective field theory to describe possible deviations from GR; modelling of compact binary systems involving scalar and vector fields with the goal of identifying gravitational wave signatures that distinguish these from vacuum black-hole binaries; advancing observational tests of inflationary predictions from large-scale structure and the CMB, especially higher-order correlators and their estimation; studying cosmological correlators generated in the primordial universe, the general rules and symmetries they must obey.
