The Institute for Fundamental Physics of the Universe (IFPU, www.ifpu.it/), Trieste, Italy, invites applications for two postdoctoral research positions to start in 2024.

IFPU is a joint initiative of International School for Advanced Studies (SISSA, www.sissa.it/ap/ and www.sissa.it/app/), the Abdus Salam International Centre for Theoretical Physics (ICTP, https://www.ictp.it/) and the National Institute for Astrophysics (INAF; Observatory of Trieste, https://www.oats.inaf.it/index.php/en/). The research fields supported by the Institute are astroparticle physics, astrophysical probes of fundamental interactions, early Universe, gravitational wave astrophysics, structures in the Universe, theory and phenomenology of gravity. The Institute aims 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.

Postdocs at IFPU work in close connections with staff members from the supporting institutions - about 30 researches in total - and also benefit from the extended visitor and research programs the Institute is hosting. The positions are for two years, with a possible extension to a third year.

The first postdoctoral position is related to topics closely connected to the research activity of the Astrophysics and Cosmology group at SISSA, including solar system, astrobiology, high-energy astrophysics, AGN, stellar and galaxy evolution, galaxy clusters, IGM, large-scale structure, cosmology and gravitational wave astrophysics. We particularly encourage applications from scientists with research records on spectrophotometric and astrochemical properties of high-z galaxies. For this position completed applications should be received no later than November 15th, 2023.

For the second position, the successful candidate is expected to conduct research in topics of interest for the Astronomical Observatory of Trieste and INAF. These include solar system, astrobiology, high-energy astrophysics, AGN, stellar and galaxy evolution, galaxy clusters, IGM, large-scale structure and cosmology. For this position completed applications should be received no later than December 11th, 2023.

All applications will be considered for both positions, but at different times, according to the deadlines.
