The School of Natural Sciences will have several openings for members in theoretical physics and astrophysics for the academic year 2013-2014. The positions are at a postdoctoral or higher level and applicants will be selected on the basis of their ability to do research in the areas of astrophysics, theoretical biology, mathematical physics, quantum field theory, particle phenomenology, string theory and quantum gravity.

Postdoctoral members frequently collaborate with each other, with faculty members at the Institute or Princeton University, and with researchers at other institutions. Postdoctoral appointments are for three years with full salary support. We also have openings for long-term (5 year) members and Bahcall Fellows. Salary is above post-doctoral level and is commensurate with qualifications. In addition to exceptional qualifications for pursuing his or her individual research, the successful candidate for a long term membership should be interested in talking to, and possibly collaborating with, other post-doctoral members. Women and minorities are encouraged to apply.

Beginning September, 2013 we will offer a few Junior visiting professorships. Applicants should be at least five but no more than ten years following the receipt of their Ph.D. Support would be provided to spend a period between one term and one year at the Institute. Your duties will consist of doing your own research and helping to make the environment at the IAS stimulating to the young Members of the school.
