Three post-doctoral positions

The physics department of ENS invites applications for three independent postdoctoral positions in theoretical physics as Junior Research Chair holders (JRC),

- One JRC position is funded by the LabEx ENS-ICFP, and integrated into the physics department and its research laboratories, LPENS and LKB.

- Two JRC positions are funded by the Philippe Meyer Institute for theoretical physics. The successful candidates will be affiliated to this Institute, while also fully integrated into the physics department of ENS.

Position Description

Initial appointments are for two years with a possible extension for a third year. In addition to an internationally competitive salary, we offer an attractive travel allowance. The physics department of ENS aims at recruiting outstanding candidates with international experience. All domains of theoretical physics will be considered but projects within the following fields are particularly encouraged. If possible, a connection with experiments of the physics department will be welcome.
