The ICTP South American Institute for Fundamental Research (ICTP-SAIFR) announces the opening of two Simons-FAPESP tenure-track research professor positions to begin in 2023. Candidates from all areas related to theoretical physics are encouraged to apply, with preference in the areas of gravitational wave physics, cosmology, particle physics, quantum information/quantum matter, statistical mechanics, complex systems and biological physics. The international search committee is chaired by Michael Green (Cambridge U.) and include William Bialek (Princeton), Ignacio Cirac (MPI Garching), Leticia Cugliandolo (Sorbonne), Scott Dodelson (Carnegie Mellon), David Gross (KITP) and ICTP-SAIFR council members.

ICTP-SAIFR is a South American center for theoretical physics created in 2011 as a collaboration of the International Centre for Theoretical Physics (ICTP) with the São Paulo State University (UNESP) and the São Paulo Research Funding Agency (FAPESP). It is located at the Instituto de Física Teórica (IFT-UNESP) campus in downtown São Paulo and has a large number of postdocs and visitors. In addition to performing research and organizing activities, the new professor will assist in the teaching and supervising of Master’s and PhD students of IFT-UNESP.

Salary will be commensurate with qualifications and experience, and will include fellowships from both the Simons Foundation and FAPESP. Additional grants are available for research/travel and salary from state and national funding agencies, and the professor can use ICTP-SAIFR funds for graduate students, postdocs and visitors, as well as participate in ICTP-SAIFR exchange agreements with the ICTP Trieste, Perimeter, Princeton-CUNY, KITP, Mainz, CERN, Fermilab, Saclay, Nordita, IFISC and IFT-Madrid.

Although applications will be accepted until the position is filled, candidates are strongly encouraged to apply before January 15, 2023 by filling out the online application form here with a cover letter explaining why you would be a good hire at ICTP-SAIFR, your curriculum vitae, research project and publication list, and the names of at least 3 researchers who will send recommendation letters.
