The Princeton Gravity Initiative is seeking exceptional recent Ph.D. recipients in theoretical gravitational theory for an honorific postdoctoral fellowship program. The Princeton Gravity Initiative is a new collaborative effort between Princeton University's Astrophysics, Mathematics, and Physics Departments to explore the fundamental nature of gravity; see for more information. Candidates from all areas of research focusing upon gravitational theory, including gravitational wave astrophysics, mathematical relativity, early universe cosmology, and quantum gravity, will be considered.

These appointments will be at the rank of Associate Research Scholar. Several positions will be available. The appointments will be annual with the expectation of renewal for two additional years subject to satisfactory performance.

Candidates must apply only at and submit a CV, list of publications, a statement of research interests, and the contact information for three referees.
