Postdoctoral Fellowships: Condensed Matter and Statistical Physics (CMSP)
International Centre for Theoretical Physics (ICTP) seeks applications for postdoctoral positions starting Fall 2018 from outstanding young scientists of any nationality with a strong research record; women are particularly encouraged to apply. With about 30 group members (faculty, visitors, postdocs and graduate students), an intense programme of workshops and conferences, and close collaborations with local scientific institutions such as SISSA, Elettra, and the University of Trieste, the CMSP group provides a vibrant international research environment for postdoctoral fellows. Postdoctoral fellows are also encouraged, and supported, to participate in activities in developing countries in order to promote the mission of the ICTP.
ICTP offers internationally competitive remuneration and a number of benefits including a pension contribution and special allowances for family members. Appointments will be made for two years, with the possibility of renewal for one more year. Preference will be given to applicants in the areas of expertise of the CMSP group.
Preference will be given to applicants in the areas of expertise of the CMSP group:
- Physics of Nanostructures
- Equilibrium and Non-equilibrium Many-body Quantum Systems
- Atomistic, Molecular, and Electronic Structure Simulations
- Materials for Renewable Energy Applications.
Eligibility: Young scientists of any nationality with a strong research record are eligible to apply. Women are particularly encouraged to apply. Fellows must have completed a PhD in Physics or related disciplines prior to the start of their Fellowship. Candidates who have obtained their PhD after 2013 will be given priority.
Candidates should apply using the ICTP online application system. They are required to arrange for the submission of three letters of recommendation by established researchers. Incomplete applications will not be considered.
