Permanent Research Professor Positions
The ICTP South American Institute for Fundamental Research announces the opening of two permanent research professor positions in theoretical physics. Although the search will concentrate in the areas of high-energy theory and cosmology, candidates from all areas of theoretical physics are encouraged to apply. The search committee is chaired by Peter Goddard (IAS Princeton), and the search committee members are Marcela Carena (Fermilab), David Gross (KITP, Santa Barbara), Leo Kadanoff (U. Chicago), Martin Rees (Cambridge), Robert Wald (U. Chicago), Edward Witten (IAS Princeton) and Matias Zaldarriaga (IAS Princeton). The institute will have a large number of postdocs and visitors, and three additional permanent research professors will be hired in the near future.
In addition to performing research and organizing activities, the new professors will assist in the teaching and supervising of Masters and PhD students of IFT-UNESP. For highly qualified candidates, the salary is 150,000 Brazilian reais (approximately 90,000 US dollars) and additional research grants are available from state and national funding agencies. The new professors will also have automatic joint visiting positions at the ICTP in Trieste.
Review of applications began in February 2012 and will continue until the positions are filled. There is no application deadline and candidates can still apply by filling out the online application form.
