Junior Research Chairs, LabEx ENS ICFP, Department of Physics, ENS (Ecole normale supérieure), Paris

Closing date: October 30, 2019

Expected interview dates: December 9-10-11, 2019

The Department of Physics at ENS Paris invites applications for two JRC (Junior Research Chairs) at postdoctoral level. Appointments will be for two years with a probable one-year extension.

The Department aims at recruiting outstanding candidates with international experience. Research activities can be experimental and/or theoretical; this year, the department aims at hiring a Junior Research Chair in Theoretical Biophysics (research topic: biological physics: from decision theory to navigation). The other position is open either for theoreticians or experimentalists. Experimental projects are encouraged through a reserved budget.

Research themes should correspond to one of the following ones:

- Quantum physics: from atoms to condensed matter

- Biophysics: from the cell to the organism

- Non-linear physics: from the laboratory to the cosmos

- Statistical and theoretical physics

Some participation in teaching within ENS-ICFP (International Centre for Fundamental Physics and its Interfaces) Master program is part of the duties;lang=en

In addition to an internationally competitive salary, ENS-ICFP provides an attractive travel allowance and research funds for experimentalists (150 000 euros). The successful candidates are fully integrated into the Department of Physics and its constituent research laboratories. For more detailed information regarding the research undertaken at the Department of Physics, please consult our website

The positions are funded by ENS-ICFP grant, obtained through the French National Excellence initiative.

Applications must be exclusively submitted through AcademicJobsOnline and should consist of:

- A cover letter

- A complete CV including a list of publications

- A research project taking into account possible interactions with research groups/faculty within the Department of Physics at Ecole normale supérieure (no more than 4 pages of A4).

- Three letters of recommendation from senior scientists, to be uploaded on AcademicJobsOnline.

Candidates are encouraged to make early contact with faculty to construct their project and should refer to these contacts in their 4-page research statement.

Short-listed candidates will be interviewed (videoconferences) in early December 2019.

Only applications received by October 30, 2019 will be considered. The hiring committee will make offers in late 2019. Positions will normally start in September 2020, but this is negociable.


For your information, one or two additional positions will be made available by the Philippe Meyer Institute.
