Philippe Meyer Junior Research Chairs in Theoretical Physics, Department of Physics, Ecole Normale Supérieure, Paris


Closing date: November 5, 2018


The Physics Department of the Ecole Normale Supérieure (ENS Paris) invites applications for two Junior Research Chairs in theoretical physics, at the postdoctoral level, funded by the Philippe Meyer Institute for theoretical physics.


The Philippe Meyer Institute aims at outstanding candidates in theoretical physics. Appointments will be for two years with a possible extension for a third year. Salary is competitive, according to international experience and qualification.


The successful candidates will carry out theoretical physics research at the Physics Departement of the ENS (which includes Laboratoire de physique théorique, Laboratoire de physique statistique, Laboratoire Kastler-Brossel, Laboratoire Pierre Agrain, and Laboratoire de radioastronomie). For more information about the research in the Physics Department, please consult the website


Projects in particle and astroparticle physics, field and string theory, statistical physics and its applications in condensed matter physics, biophysics and information theory, are especially welcome.

Applications must be exclusively submitted through AcademicJobsOnline

and should consist of:

-        A cover letter

-        A complete CV including a list of publications

-        A research statement of no more than 4 pages. Indication of possible interactions with research groups/faculty within the Physics Department of the ENS is optional.

-        Three letters of recommendation from senior scientists, to be uploaded on AcademicJobsOnline.


Short-listed candidates may be invited for interview (videoconferences) early December 2018.


Applications received by November 5, 2018 will receive full consideration. Positions will normally start in October 2019, but this is slightly negotiable.


For information, additional positions (experimental or theoretical) will be made available by the ENS-ICFP - International Centre for Fundamental Physics and its interfaces,
