Several postdoctoral positions will be available in the HECAP Section with expected starting date in October 2022. Appointments will be for 2+1 years.

Postdocs working on cosmology and astroparticle physics will also participate in the initiatives of the IFPU (Institute for the Fundamental Physics of the Universe), a collaboration between ICTP, the Trieste Observatory and SISSA.

HECAP members are currently working on: String theory including D-branes, Black Holes, Gauge/string theory duality, Phenomenological String theory/M theory; Particle Phenomenology including Physics beyond the Standard Model, Dark Matter, Axions, Higgs and Collider physics, Neutrino physics and astrophysics; Cosmology including Large Scale Structures, Physics of the Early Universe, Present Acceleration; Topological field theories and Localization.

The Section presently comprises 8 staff members, 4 emeritus scientists, 10 postdoctoral researchers, a number of associated faculty members from other institutions as well as up to 200 other short/long-term visitors per year.

There is also a close collaboration between ICTP scientists and the International School for Advanced Studies (SISSA), the Department of Theoretical Physics of Trieste University, the Trieste section of the INFN, the Trieste Observatory and the University of Udine. The Section is also actively involved in the ATLAS experiment at the CERN LHC.

The ICTP takes seriously its commitment to equal opportunity and diversity in hiring, and its global mission to promote science in the developing world.
