Several postdoctoral positions will be available in the ICTP's High Energy, Cosmology and Astroparticle Physics (HECAP) section with expected starting date on Oct. 2018. Appointments will be for 2+1 years.

Outstanding candidates with a proven record of independent research are also welcome to apply for a special senior postdoc position of 3+2 years, enjoying extra benefits.

Post-docs working on cosmology and astro-particle physics will also participate in the initiatives of the new IFPU (Institute for the Fundamental Physics of the Universe), a collaboration among ICTP, the Trieste Observatory and SISSA.

Members of the Section are currently working on:
  • String theory including D-branes, Black Holes, Gauge/string theory duality, Phenomenological String theory/M theory
  • Particle Phenomenology including Physics beyond the Standard Model, Dark Matter, Higgs and Collider physics, Neutrino physics and astrophysics
  • Cosmology including Large Scale Structures, Physics of the Early Universe, Present Acceleration
  • Topological field theories and Localization
The Section presently comprises 6 staff members (plus 2 expected to join by Fall 2018), 4 emeritus scientists and 9 postdoctoral researchers, as well as up to 200 other short/long-term visitors per year. There is also a close collaboration between ICTP scientists and the International School for Advanced Studies (SISSA), the Department of Theoretical Physics of Trieste University, the Trieste section of the INFN, the Trieste Observatory and the University of Udine. The Section is also actively involved in the ATLAS experiment at the CERN LHC.

Each application should include:
  • Curriculum vitae
  • Statement of research interests
  • Publication  list
  • Three letters of recommendation
The application deadline is Dec. 3, 2017. The selection will be made immediately thereafter.
