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

Closing date: November 8, 2020

The Physics Department of the Ecole Normale Supérieure (ENS Paris) invites applications for one or 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 ENS Physics Department. 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 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 within ENS Physics Department is optional. - Three letters of recommendation from senior scientists, to be uploaded on AcademicJobsOnline.

Short-listed candidates shall be invited for interview (videoconferences) early December 2020.

Applications registered by November 8, 2020 will receive full consideration. Positions are to start in October 2021, but this is slightly negotiable.

For information, additional positions (experimental or theoretical) are available with ENS-ICFP - International Centre for Fundamental Physics and its interfaces:
