-With its huge breadth of research interests and expertise, the Center for Theoretical Physics at MIT is a great place to do postdoctoral research.  ​Please ​[[jthaler@jthaler.net|contact me]] for further information about the group.  ​Formal CTP postdoc applications are available on [[http://​academicjobsonline.org/​ajo/​MIT/​CTP/​|Academic Jobs Online]].+With its huge breadth of research interests and expertise, the [[http://​ctp.mit.edu/​|Center for Theoretical Physics ​(CTP)]] ​at MIT is a great place to do postdoctoral research.  ​There are also opportunities to engage with the [[http://​iaifi.org/|Institute for Artificial Intelligence and Fundamental Interactions (IAIFI)]].  ​Specific postdoctoral opportunities to collaborate with me and my group include: 
 + 
 +  * [[http://​academicjobsonline.org/​ajo/​MIT/​CTP/​|Postdoctoral positions in the CTP]] (typical deadline mid-November) 
 +  * [[https://​iaifi.org/​fellows.html|IAIFI Fellowship]] for researchers working at the intersection of physics and AI (typical deadline late September) 
 +  * [[https://​physics.mit.edu/​research/​pappalardo-fellowships-in-physics/​|Pappalardo Fellowship]] for exceptional postdoctoral candidates (requires nomination in early September)
  
-Exceptional postdoctoral candidates should consider applying for the [[http://​mit.edu/​physics/​research/​pappalardo/​index.html|Pappalardo Fellowship]] at MIT.  In addition, there is often funding for LHC-related research through the [[http://​www.pas.rochester.edu/​~orr/​LHC-TI/​Home.html|LHC Theory Initiative]],​ and I am happy to sponsor one LHC-TI fellow each year.

-To do meaningful research in theoretical particle physics at the undergraduate level, you must have taken at least a course on Relativity (8.033) and a full year of Quantum Mechanics (8.05/​8.06).  ​My preference is to work with students who have taken some graduate-level courses at MIT.  Funding is available through the [[http://​web.mit.edu/​UROP/​|UROP]] program.  ​Please ​[[jthaler@jthaler.net|contact me]] about possible projects.+To do meaningful research in theoretical particle physics at the undergraduate level, you must have taken at least a course on Relativity (8.033) and a full year of Quantum Mechanics (8.05/​8.06).  ​I often work with students who have been exposed to some graduate-level courses at MIT, though there are also research projects available for students with extensive programming experience.
