Two Postdoctoral Research Scholar Opportunities Arizona State University Beyond Center for Fundamental Concepts in Science

The Beyond Center for Fundamental Concepts in Science (http://beyond.asu.edu) at Arizona State University invites applications for up to two postdoctoral research scholars to work on the theory of life’s origins, with emphasis on the deep conceptual foundations.  These full-time, benefits-eligible positions are renewable on an annual basis (July 1 – June 30), contingent upon satisfactory performance, availability of resources, and the needs of the university. Applicants must be within five years of receipt of their Ph.D. to be considered for initial appointment and for subsequent annual renewal. 

 

Ideal candidates will be able to apply theory directly to experimental data, and be adventurous enough to develop radically new ideas.  A background in physics or computer science is preferred, but promising candidates across all disciplinary backgrounds will be considered.  The candidate will work under the direction of Prof. Sara Walker (see emergence.asu.edu for more details of the research program) and will also interact with other faculty in the Beyond Center including Paul Davies, and faculty in the Center for Biosocial Complex Systems, a collaboration between Arizona State University and the Santa Fe Institute. 

 

Minimum Qualifications: PhD in a related field by the time of appointment.

 

Desired Qualifications: background in physics or computer science.

 

Applicants should send a cover letter, curriculum vitae, and a statement of research interests in pdf format to Jeanette Perez at perezjr@asu.edu.  They should also arrange for three letters of recommendation to be sent to the same address.  Initial review of complete applications will begin on September 30, 2018 is preferred, if not filled, every week thereafter until the search is closed.  Further enquiries should be emailed directly to Sara Walker (sara.i.walker@asu.edu) or Paul Davies (paul.davies@asu.edu). 

 

A background check is required for employment. Arizona State University is an equal opportunity/affirmative action employer committed to excellence through diversity. Women and minorities are encouraged to apply.

 

 

Arizona State University is a VEVRAA Federal Contractor and an Equal Opportunity/Affirmative Action Employer. All qualified applicants will be considered without regard to race, color, sex, religion, national origin, disability, protected veteran status, or any other basis protected by law.
