SISSA, the Scuola Internazionale Superiore di Studi Avanzati in Trieste, invites expressions of interest for a faculty position at tenure track level from outstanding scientists in the early stage of their career, active in the development of machine learning and artificial intelligence algorithms to molecular simulations, computational condensed-matter and materials science. The successful applicant will be part of SISSA’s ongoing and growing efforts in condensed matter, molecular simulations, and machine learning.

SISSA is the largest graduate school in Italy. The scholarships of the PhD students are entirely funded by the school budget, and PI positions are offered together with a starting grant including at least the salary for one post doc. The working environment is truly international. English is the standard language used for any scientific activity. Researchers currently employed outside of Italy may benefit from a fiscal exemption of 5-12 years according to Italian law.

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.

An expression of interest should include: - a cover letter, including a description of the candidate’s motivation to move to SISSA, - a professional CV, including a link to the candidate’s ORCID profile, containing an updated list of publications, - a motivated statement of the academic level (tenure track or associate professor) the candidate is aspiring to, - the contact info of three scientists who have agreed to be contacted to help us evaluate the candidate’s scientific profile, - a research statement of maximum one page. We will favor profiles with a strong theoretical background and an interdisciplinary CV at least partially focused on machine learning and artificial intelligence.

This call will remain open until 15/07/2023. Expressions of interest should be written in English, packaged in a single pdf file and sent exclusively via this web service.
