Open research position in Theoretical Physics - Pisa, Italy

22 November 2017

The University of Pisa (Italy) has issued a call for one researcher position in Theoretical Physics within the Department of Physics "E. Fermi". The position is open to any researcher in the field of theoretical nuclear physics, high-energy physics, including lattice QCD and string theory, mathematical physics, and statistical physics. The deadline for application is December 4, 2017. We ask you to spread this information among your colleagues and potential strong candidates, especially those working in theoretical nuclear physics.

The researcher (type "ricercatore universitario di tipo a - junior" - RTDa) will have a full time contract for the duration of three years with mainly research duties and some teaching duties (essentially one course per year, about 60 hours of teaching). The position can be considered as a senior post-doc position, by international standards. However, it is not a tenure track position.

All the information can be found at: (There is only an Italian version)

In particular, the admission procedure requires:
-Ph.D. (or equivalent title)
-12 publications will be evaluated by a committee to form a shortlist

Expected start: within the middle of the year 2018 The salary will be approximately 35 kEUR per year (gross salary). The researcher will have access, as the other members of the theory group, to funds for travels, both from the University of Pisa and from INFN - Pisa branch.

Postdoctoral Positions - Global Talent Fellowships

06 November 2017

The Galician Institute of High Energy Physics, IGFAE, at the University of Santiago de Compostela, invites applications for research associate positions within its Global Talent Program.

This new program aims to recruit outstanding postdoctoral researchers capable of preparing and leading a competitive research project within the institute. The search is very broad and include High-Energy Particle Physics (both Theory, Phenomenology and Experiment), Astroparticle Physics and Cosmology, and Nuclear Physics. Opening new lines of research, that would complement those existing in the Institute at present, is encouraged.

The positions are for three years with additional funds for research and the possibility to supervise PhD students and postdocs. Permanent positions for those candidates succesful in an ERC application will be available by the (external) Oportunius program.

Interested candidates should submit

• A recent CV
• List of Publications
• Statement of Research Interest, including a small plan for the near future
• At least three letters of recommendation

via Academic Jobs Online

The positions will be open until filled with the deadlines

• December 1st - to be considered in the December meeting of the selection board
• March 15th - to be considered in the April meeting of the selection board

IGFAE is a Maria de Maetzu Excellence Unit. The Global Talent Program belongs to this funding scheme. More information about the activities of the Institute can be found at

Postdoc position at Argonne National Laboratory

06 November 2017

The Low Energy Nuclear Physics Group at the Physics Division of Argonne National Laboratory has an opening for a post-doctoral research fellow in Experimental Nuclear Physics and Nuclear Data. We are seeking an enthusiastic and well qualified candidate who can take a leading role in an experimental program that utilizes the unique capabilities of Gammasphere spectrometer for discrete and calorimetric gamma-ray studies following beta decay of neutron-rich nuclei produced at the CARIBU facility. Experience in gamma-ray spectroscopy and GEANT simulations is desirable. The initial appointment will be for two years, with possibility for additional one year renewal contingent upon mutual agreement. Review of applications will begin immediately and will continue until the position is filled. Interested candidates should send a curriculum vita with a list of publications and the names of three contact references to Dr. M.P. Carpenter ( and Dr. F.G. Kondev (, Physics Division, Argonne National Laboratory.

Nuclear theory postdoc opportunity at the University of North Carolina

03 November 2017

The University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill (UNC) invites applications for a two-year postdoctoral fellowship in nuclear theory (with Prof. Jonathan Engel), to begin around September 1, 2018. Candidates should have experience in nuclear-structure theory (or other kinds of many-body theory), nuclear astrophysics, or fundamental symmetries in nuclei. It is anticipated that research will focus on double-beta decay, r-process nucleosynthesis, time-reversal noninvariance and atomic electric dipole moments, and nuclear structure, including both ab initio methods and density functional theory.

Applicants should submit a curriculum vitae, a statement of research interests, and the names of three people who can write letters of recommendation to the UNC website at by January 1, 2018. Evaluation of applications will begin shortly thereafter.

The University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill is an equal opportunity and affirmative action employer. All qualified applicants will receive consideration for employment without regard to age, color, disability, gender, gender expression, gender identity, genetic information, national origin, race, religion, sex, sexual orientation, or status as a protected veteran.
