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

The Astroparticle Physics group at the “Scuola Internazionale Superiore di Studi Avanzati” (SISSA) in Trieste, Italy, invites expressions of interest for a faculty position from outstanding candidates with a strong astroparticle theoretical research record on cosmological implications of beyond standard model physics, including research on baryogenesis/leptogenesis scenarios, phase transitions, axion physics, early universe tests of fundamental interactions.

The appointment procedure will be activated at the assistant professor, tenure-track, level*.

The successful candidate is expected to work as an independent principal investigator, promoting and leading research activities to complement the current expertise of the SISSA groups in Particle Astrophysics, Gravitation Theory and Cosmology, as well as to attract external funds, take an active part in the SISSA PhD teaching programme and supervise graduate students.

The deadline for receipt of the expressions of interest, in English and only via Academic Jobs Online, is September 2, 2019.

They should include:
  1.  Curriculum Vitae with a complete publication list and the names of at least three referees.
  2.  Description of current research interests.
  3.  List of ten publications of greatest interest for the selection. 
The International School for Advanced Studies (SISSA) is a leading research and training institution (PhD School) based on the beautiful sea coast of Trieste in Italy. It offers first rate facilities (also for High Performance Computing) and has close relations with the other scientific institutions in the area. In particular, together with the National Institute for Astrophysics (INAF), the International Centre for Theoretical Physics (ICTP), the National Institute for Nuclear Physics (INFN), SISSA is a founding member and supports the Institute for Fundamental Physics of the Universe (IFPU), Trieste, a newly born institute aiming 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. More information about the school, the Astroparticle Physics group and IFPU can be found at, and

*In the Italian system, a tenure track position corresponds to a “ricercatore TD – B”, i.e. an assistant professor to be confirmed as an associate professor within three years after appointment.
