|The ICTP South American Institute for Fundamental Research (ICTP-SAIFR) announces the opening of up to 12 FAPESP postdoctoral positions to begin in 2017. These positions will be filled in areas including astrophysics, complex systems including applications to biology, condensed matter theory, cosmology and general relativity, gravitational waves, mathematical physics, theoretical and experimental particle physics, physics of cold atoms, QCD and hadronic physics, and string theory. The FAPESP postdoctoral fellowships are for two years with possible extension for up to four years, and pay an annual tax-free salary of 82,000 Brazilian reais as well as moving costs and 12,300 Brazilian reais/year for travel and research expenses. Postdocs will also receive ICTP-SAIFR funds to invite visitors and organize activities.
Review of applications will begin in January 2017 and will continue until all positions have been filled. Although there is no strict deadline, applications before December 15, 2016 are strongly recommended for positions to begin in 2017. Candidates can apply by filling out the online application form here.
ICTP-SAIFR is a South American regional center for theoretical physics created through a collaboration of the International Centre for Theoretical Physics in Trieste (ICTP) with the São Paulo Research Funding Agency (FAPESP) and São Paulo State University (UNESP), and is located at the Instituto de Física Teórica (IFT-UNESP) campus in the center of São Paulo. ICTP-SAIFR has visitor exchange agreements with CEA-Saclay, CERN, Fermilab, IFT-Madrid, Mainz ITP, Nordita, Perimeter and the ICTP in Trieste, and has a well-funded visitor program with frequent seminars, schools and workshops in all areas of theoretical physics.
