Postdoctoral position in theoretical cosmology at the IFT UAM-CSIC

Kind of offer: 

It is a pleasure to announce the opening of a postdoctoral position in theoretical cosmology at the IFT UAM-CSIC, Madrid. The selected candidate will join the Group of Dr. Matteo R. Fasiello.

The focus area will be early universe physics including inflation and cosmological gravitational wave backgrounds. Dr. Fasiello is actively involved also in the LISA Collaboration.

All candidates with general expertise in theoretical cosmology are encouraged to apply.

The appointment is for two years, subject to yearly performance review. The salary is commensurate with experience. The position comes with a dedicated travel budget. The funds associated with this position are bound to a very specific timeline, with September 1st 2023 as the ideal starting date.

The position may be later extended to a third year by relying on funding from a different grant.

The Instituto de Fisica Teorica ( houses a thriving Cosmology Group with several PhD students and a lively group of highly motivated postdocs. More broadly, the Institute offers a welcoming and vibrant research environment, with a wide range of experts in cosmology & gravitation, lattice & quantum field theory, nuclear theory, particle & astro-particle physics, quantum information theory, and string theory.

Candidates are invited to send (i) a curriculum vitae, (ii) a list of publications (if not included in the cv), (iii) a brief research statement to, ensuring the subject line includes "postdoc2023”. Candidates should make sure at least two letters of recommendation are sent to the same address by the deadline, ideally with a subject line including "postdoc2023 rec”.

The deadline for the applications is July 15th 2023. However, review of applications will continue until the position is filled. Candidates must have received their PhD by the start date.
