Position Description:    

*** this position has been closed and new applications are no longer accepted. ***

The Institute for Fundamental Physics of the Universe (IFPU,, Trieste, Italy, invites applications for a few postdoctoral research positions to start in the Fall of 2022. The positions are for two years, with a possible extension to a third year. The research fields supported by the Institute are connected to the areas of: astroparticle physics, astrophysical probes of fundamental interactions, early Universe, gravitational wave astrophysics, structures in the Universe, theory and phenomenology of gravity.

For two of the positions, applications in the following areas are strongly encouraged:
  1. Research lines in: A) Astrophysics of multi-messenger sources: GRBs, kilonovae, other transients and their precursors; B) Galaxy magnification bias: a promising probe for cosmology and dark matter nature; C) Merging of galaxy clusters: simulations and observable implications of self-interacting dark matter.
  2. Formation and evolution of galaxies, including the formation of the first stars and black holes, and the formation and evolution of virialized objects, groups and galaxy clusters.
IFPU is a newly born institute, having started its activities in the academic year 2018-2019. It is a joint initiative of International School for Advanced Studies (SISSA, and, the Abdus Salam International Centre for Theoretical Physics (ICTP), the National Institute for Astrophysics (INAF; Observatory of Trieste) and the National Institute for Nuclear Physics (INFN; Trieste Section). The Institute aims at hosting and promoting a vigorous and innovative multi-disciplinary research program focused on investigating the fundamental laws of Nature under a Cosmological and Astrophysical perspective. Postdocs at IFPU work in close connections with staff members from the supporting institutions - about 30 researches in total -  and also benefit from the extended visitor and research programs the Institute is hosting.

Review of applications will begin on December 15, 2021 and continue until the positions are filled.
