SISSA, the Scuola Internazionale Superiore di Studi Avanzati in Trieste, invites expressions of interest for a faculty position from outstanding scientists with a strong research record in the broad field of formal aspects of theoretical high energy physics, preferably with a specific focus on holography, entanglement, quantum information approaches to quantum gravity and their applications to black-holes physics. The appointment procedure will be activated at the assistant professor, tenure-track, level*, or at the associate professor level, depending on the career level of the candidates. The successful candidate is expected to work as an independent principal investigator, promoting and leading research activities to complement the current expertise of the present SISSA faculty members, as well as to attract external funds, take an active part in the SISSA PhD teaching programme, and supervise graduate students (selected on a competitive basis and funded by bursaries provided by SISSA). Expressions of interest should be sent (in English and via Academic Jobs Online only) preferably by June 21 2023. They should include:

1. Curriculum Vitae and at least three reference letters. 2. Description of current research interests. 3. Publication list, indicating the eight publications of greatest interest for the selection.

The International School for Advanced Studies (SISSA) is a leading research and training institution located in Trieste, Italy. Teaching is only at graduate level. The campus is in a green area on the hills close to Trieste and is efficiently connected to the city by public transport. SISSA offers to its community first rate research facilities (e.g. High Performance Computing facilities) and services (canteen and kindergarten services located on site). SISSA has connections with the International Centre for Theoretical Physics (ICTP), the National Institute for Nuclear Physics (INFN) and the University of Trieste (UNITS). SISSA is also a founding member of several research Institutes such as IFPU and IGAP.

SISSA is an inclusive institution and we warmly welcome all expressions of interest, irrespective of gender, sexual orientation, religion, ethnicity, or political orientation. Expressions of interest are particularly welcome from individuals belonging to communities and social groups that are underrepresented in STEM academia.

*In the Italian system, a tenure-track position corresponds to a "ricercatore TD b", i.e. an assistant professor to be confirmed (on the sole basis of her/his results) as a tenured associate professor within three years after appointment.
