  • Dr. Thiago Araujo
  • Ioannis Kalogerakis
  • Yuta Sekiguchi

My research group is supported by the Swiss National Science Foundation.


    I expect to fill one postdoc position (2 years with a possible extension of one year subject to availability of funding) for fall 2020. To apply, please use the Joint European postdoc application (selecting Bern as one of your preferences).

    If you are interested in doing your master thesis in my group, please contact me (however, there is no funding available). For Master students at U. Bern, the prerequisite for doing a Master thesis with me is having passed the QFT I and ACTP exams with at least grade 5.
