The Institute for Theoretical Physics (IFT) in Madrid is offering PhD positions for talented Early Stage Researchers within the framework of the La Caixa International PhD program, in the fields of Particle Physics, Astroparticles and Cosmology.
The Institute of Theoretical Physics IFT CSIC/UAM welcomes applications to postdoctoral positions, starting October 2018, under various programs:
– Up to 8 positions within the IFT Severo Ochoa Excellence Center program
– One position within the grant “New Avenues in Particle Physics” (grant # FPA2016-78645-P)
– One position in Particle Astrophysics and Cosmology, with a focus on dark matter searches, funded by an “Atracción de Talento Investigador” grant (#2016-T1/TIC-1542) awarded by the Comunidad de Madrid regional government
There is a new opening for PhD positions at the IFT, including three positions associated to the Severo Ochoa Excellence Center grant.
Candidates are expected to carry out a PhD in one of the strategic research lines of the IFT, which include particle phenomenology, astroparticle physics, nuclear theory, string theory, gravitation and cosmology, lattice and quantum field theory, and quantum information theory. They should have an excellent academic track record, and are expected to hold an academic degree that grants access to a PhD program at the time of formalisation of the contract.
The deadline for applications is from October 3rd to October 18th 2017 at 15:00
