100xCiencia.3, the successor to last year’s 100xCiencia.2, is almost here. The subject of this year’s event will underscore the importance of scientific education, citizen science and the participation of society in the present and future of science. The 100xciencia.3, co-organized by CNIO and SOMMa, will gather together SOMMa members and other attendees to share ongoing projects on science education, citizen science and public engagement that can encourage society and us to continue working together. Different stakeholders relevant for science and society will participate in roundtables focused on timely and important topics.
The Institute of Theoretical Physics IFT UAM-CSIC participates in the “La Caixa Junior Leader” program, which finances 22 3-year postdocs with additional money for research specifically for Centers of Excellence, for candidates satisfying the mobility rule, and 10 postdocs for those not.
In a recent event in Madrid, the alliance of the Severo Ochoa and María de Maeztu research centres and units (SOMMa) expressed its concern about the reduction of financing for R+D+I, and the administrative problems that constrain Spanish science. As well, the alliance presented the “SOMMa Position Paper: Actions required to safeguard science competitiveness” to all Spanish parliamentary groups in order for them to address these problems as soon as possible.
The IFT joins the OpenHPC Consortium
The IFT has joined the OpenHPC Consortium, a Linux Foundation Collaborative Project whose mission is to provide a reference collection of open-source HPC software components and best practices, lowering barriers to deployment, advancement, and use of modern HPC methods and tools. OpenHPC components and best practices will enable and accelerate innovation and discoveries by broadening access to state-of-the-art, open-source HPC methods and tools in a consistent environment, supported by a collaborative, worldwide community of HPC users, developers, researchers, administrators, and vendors.
The SOMMa Alliance aims at promoting Spanish science of excellence, and safeguarding its competitiveness
The Severo Ochoa Centres and Maria de Maeztu Units Alliance (SOMMa) gathers research centres and units that received the Spanish Severo Ochoa and María de Maeztu excellence awards respectively. Thanks to the support of the Spanish State Secretariat for Research, Development and Innovation, these centres and units have joined efforts to promote, (more…)
There is a new opening for PhD positions at the IFT, funded by 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. (more…)
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 IFT participates in the new Alliance of Severo Ochoa Centres and Maria de Maeztu Units of Excellence
The alliance´s target is to internationally promote and strengthen the centres and units accredited with this distinction, to give their research a higher profile.

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
– One three year postdoctoral position for research in Gauge/Gravity Duality to be funded by a Grant ‘Atracción de Talento 2017’ (2017-T1/TI C-5258)
The IFT has received today the Severo Ochoa Excellence Award from The Ministry of Economy, Industry and Competitiviness.
SO (IFT) is based on the grant awarded by the Spanish Secretary of State for Research, Development and Innovation, recognizing the IFT as the center of excellence for research in theoretical physics, after detailed evaluation by an international panel of world-leader researchers in different areas. The initial recognition for the period 2013-2017 has been extended to the period 2017-2021.
There is a new opening for PhD positions at the IFT, including three positions associated to the Severo Ochoa Excellence Center grant.
