Deadline: 15 August 2022
The Astrophysics Research Centre pursues both a theoretical and experimental approach to studies of the gravitational field. A post doctoral fellow is sought to support the theoretical and mathematical areas of the Centre. The Centre staff pursue advanced studies on extended field theories such as Lovelock gravity, Einstein-Gauss-Bonet gravity, f(R, T) theory, Rastall theory and other modified theories. A number of fascinating unsolved problems exist in these directions and the use of computer algebra tools such as Mathematica, Maple, GrTensor II have opened up new avenues of study. The fellow is expected to strengthen the Centre’s research interests in these areas and to also infuse novel ideas on field theory amongst faculty and students. The fellowship is for the 2023 academic year, with the possibility of extension to 2024 based upon satisfactory outputs of the successful candidate.
The incumbent will report to Prof. S. Hansraj.
