Deadline:  2023-08-16

Location:  Crete, Greece

The Crete Center for Theoretical Physics (CCTP) has two 2-year postdoctoral positions in theoretical high energy and gravitational physics expected to start in the Fall 2023. Candidates with expertise in black hole physics, holographic dualities, and gravitational waves as well as numerical and/or mathematical general relativity are encouraged to apply.

Funding for these positions is provided by the Hellenic Foundation for Research and Innovation. Salary is on par with that of junior faculty in Greece and the positions include funds for travel. The successful candidates, should they wish so, will also be supported to apply for the European Marie Curie fellowships in order to continue their appointments at CCTP for an additional two years.

Applicants must hold, at the time of appointment, a PhD in theoretical physics or a related area.

The CCTP faculty consists of Elias Kiritsis, Vasilis Niarchos, and Achilleas Porfyriadis. Our current postdocs are Christopher Rosen and Maurizio Firrotta. More information about the group may be found at

Interested candidates should send their CV, including a list of publications, and a statement of research interests to cctp-postdoc-apps[AT] Additionally, three letters of recommendation from senior scientists familiar with the applicant’s work should also be sent directly to the same address. Review of applications will begin on August 15, 2023 and continue until the positions are filled.

CCTP is part of a group of European institutes that collaborate on the postdoctoral application procedure, using a centralized application website hosted by the ITF at KU Leuven. Applicants who have already submitted an application for the Fall 2023 campaign may declare so, and their data will be retrieved from this centralized European postdoc database.
