Postdoctoral positions at ICTP-SAIFR

The ICTP South American Institute for Fundamental Research (ICTP-SAIFR), located at the campus of the Instituto de Física Teórica (IFT-UNESP) in Sao Paulo, announces the opening of three FAPESP one-year postdoctoral positions to begin in 2021 or early 2022. It is expected that successful postdoctoral researchers will be able to extend the positions for up to 3 years.

The FAPESP postdoctoral fellowships pay an annual tax-free salary of 88,500 Brazilian reais as well as moving costs and 13,275 Brazilian reais/year for travel and research expenses. Postdocs will also receive ICTP-SAIFR funds to invite visitors and organize events as soon as in-person activities are allowed.

Review of applications will begin in August 2021 and will continue until all positions have been filled. Candidates are recommended to send applications before August 10, 2021 by filling out the online application form here.
