The successful candidate is expected to work as an independent principal investigator, promoting and leading research activities to complement the current expertise of the SISSA groups in Particle Astrophysics, Gravitation Theory and Cosmology, as well as to attract external funds, take an active part in the SISSA PhD teaching programme and  supervise graduate students.

The deadline for receipt of the expressions of interest, in English and only via Academic Jobs Online, is May 10, 2017. They should include:

  1. Curriculum Vitae with a complete publication list and the names of at least three referees.
  2. Description of current research interests.
  3. List of ten publications of greatest interest for the selection.

The International School for Advanced Studies (SISSA) is a leading research and training institution (PhD School) based on the beautiful sea coast of Trieste in Italy. It offers first rate facilities (also for High Performance Computing) and has close relations with the other scientific institutions in the area, including the International Centre for Theoretical Physics (ICTP), the National Institute for Nuclear Physics (INFN), and the Astronomical Observatory of Trieste (OATs). All of its activities are held in English. More information about the school and the groups can be found at, and

*In the Italian system, a tenure track position corresponds to a “ricercatore TD – B”, i.e. an assistant professor to be confirmed as an associate professor within three years after appointment.
