The Institute for Fundamental Physics of the Universe (IFPU, www.ifpu.it/), Trieste, Italy, invites applications for several postdoctoral research positions to start in the Fall of 2020. Available positions include:
– Three positions – for two years, with a possible extension to a third year – for theoretical and phenomenological research in the areas supported by the Institute: astroparticle physics, astrophysical probes of fundamental interactions, early Universe, gravitational wave astrophysics, structures in the Universe, theory and phenomenology of gravity;
– One additional position – for two years – in the area of gravitation theory [gr-qc], with focus on phenomenological aspects of black holes beyond general relativity;
– Two additional positions – for two years – in the area of dark matter phenomenology and theory.
IFPU is a newly born institute, having started its activities in the academic year 2018-2019. It is a joint initiative of International School for Advanced Studies (SISSA, www.sissa.it/ap/ and www.sissa.it/app/), the Abdus Salam International Centre for Theoretical Physics (ICTP), the National Institute for Astrophysics (INAF; Observatory of Trieste) and the National Institute for Nuclear Physics (INFN; Trieste Section). The Institute aims at hosting and promoting a vigorous and innovative multi-disciplinary research program focused on investigating the fundamental laws of Nature under a Cosmological and Astrophysical perspective. Postdocs at IFPU work in close connections with staff members from the supporting institutions – about 30 researches in total – and also benefit from the extended visitor and research programs the Institute is hosting.
Applications, via Academic Jobs Online (https://academicjobsonline.org/ajo/jobs/15438), should include curriculum vitae, research statement, publication list and three reference letters.
Review of applications will begin on December 12, 2019 and continue until the positions are filled.
