Inclusive science is the only possible one

The UAM-CSIC Institute of Theoretical Physics joins the celebration of LGBTIAQ+ Pride on June 28th, asserting that inclusive science is the only way forward.

Fixed-term faculty positions: ATCAM program

The Institute for Theoretical Physics UAM-CSIC, Madrid, welcomes expressions of interest for fixed-term faculty positions under the Atraccion de Talento program  (ATCAM-Modalidad 1) of the Madrid regional government.

Estreno del documental 'Territorio gravedad' con la participación del IFT

'Territorio gravedad' es un proyecto de divulgación con un marcado corte científico – humanista, que ofrece una panorámica del fenómeno físico de la gravedad, tal y como es entendido en la actualidad.

IFT takes part in the CSIC Conference on Scientific Culture and Citizen Science

The term citizen science refers to any scientific activity that aims to generate new knowledge through the participation of citizens (in the sense of conscious and intentional involvement), who can take part at various stages of the scientific process, from designing the project to collecting data, analyzing the results, or distributing them.

The largest scales of the Universe serve as a probe to fundamental physics such as the origin of cosmic structure and general relativity.
September 26, 2022 to September 28, 2022
10:00am to 2:00pm
The Swampland program gives general constraints on effective theories to be compatible with quantum gravity, therefore defining the Landscape of consistent theories.

Symmetries provide a powerful organizing principle in physics. However, there are reasons to believe that exact global symmetries do not exist in consistent quantum-gravitational theories.
September 29, 2022
3:00pm to 4:00pm
We present evidence that the renormalization of Einstein-AdS gravity can be derived from conformal structures in the bulk.
