The Physics Division of the Gran Sasso Science Institute (GSSI) invites expressions of interest for faculty positions at the Assistant Professor level (Tenure Track) from highly qualified scholars worldwide with an interest in research activity for Underground experiments at Laboratori Nazionali del Gran Sasso (LNGS).

The GSSI Physics Division hosts scientists carrying out interdisciplinary research on a variety of subjects, ranging from underground Particle Physics, gravitational wave Astronomy, Multi-messenger astrophysics, High Energy Astrophysics, Cosmic Rays and Cosmology. The GSSI is a Center for Advanced Studies, with a prominent program of graduate courses. About 40 Physics Graduate Students from all over the world are at GSSI at any given time, and part of the duties of the Faculty is to provide teaching and supervision of their research activity.

The GSSI announces two tenure-track positions this year. The present call for expressions of interest is aimed at probing the community of scientists at international level that might want to join the GSSI faculty. The experimental activities at LNGS of interest for this call include searches for Neutrinoless Double Beta Decay (CUORE, CUPID, LEGEND) and Dark Matter (DarkSide-20k, COSINUS). Also, R&D for future directional dark mass experiments is being pursued at GSSI.

Candidates willing to work in the exciting GSSI atmosphere, as tenure track Assistant Professors, are required to have a doctoral degree in physics or related fields prior to the appointment, with a proven record of achievements, a clear potential to promote and lead research activities and a specific interest in teaching at the graduate and postgraduate level to a small set of particularly skilled students.
