Deadline:  2022-01-31

Location:  Rome, Italy

The Physics Department of Sapienza University of Rome invites applications for academic openings at the Associate and/or Full Professor level from any fields in Physics covered through a “direct call” procedure.

The Department of Physics has strong research groups in a number of fields over a wide range of interests and is seeking established scientists with an outstanding record of high impact research, excellence and leadership. The successful candidate will be expected to actively contribute to the department’s academic program, its strategy and governance, as well as providing scientific leadership and to participate in large-scale grant applications.

The Direct Calls program of the Italian Ministry of Education, Universities and Research (MIUR), provides opportunities to fund academic positions to scientists and scholars who have been working abroad with an equivalent position for at least three years, or to recipients of European Research Council (ERC) grants. More details about the Direct Calls program and eligibility criteria can be found on the call webpage:

In particular, the “Gravity theory and gravitational wave phenomenology” group at Sapienza University of Rome [] is willing to support applications from outstanding candidates. The research activities of the group include gravitational-wave modelling and phenomenology, black-hole and neutron-star physics, tests of gravity and of the nature of compact objects, and strong-gravity tests of dark matter. Staff members of the group are also involved in activities such as supervision of students, networking, fund raising, scientific policy making, etc.

Staff members of the gravity theory group at Sapienza currently include Leonardo Gualtieri and Paolo Pani, as well as 7 postdocs, 10 PhD students, and several master students, with strong connections to other research groups at Sapienza and worldwide. The group is part of the LISA and ET Consortia and of the “Amaldi Research Center for gravitational physics and astrophysics” at Sapienza, of the RISE H2020-MC network “Gravitational Universe: Challenges and Opportunities (GRU)”, and of the INFN Specific Initiative TEONGRAV – Gravitational Wave Sources. The group is funded by several national and international grants.
