Open research position in Theoretical Physics - Pisa, Italy

11 July 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 July 31, 2017. We ask you to spread this information among your colleagues and potential strong candidates, especially in those working in theoretical nuclear physics.

The researcher (type "ricercatore universitario di tipo b - senior" - RTDb) 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 80 hours of teaching). At the end of the three years, if the researcher has obtained the "abilitazione scientifica nazionale" (national scientific abilitation, see or, she/he will be automatically hired by the University of Pisa as associate professor. Therefore, this RTDb position is equivalent to a tenure track position, by international standards.

All the information can be found at:

"Pubblicato sulla Gazzetta Ufficiale n. 49 del 30 giugno 2017 Scadenza presentazione domande 31 luglio 2017" (There is an Italian and an English version)

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

Expected start: end of year 2017 The net salary will be approximately 42 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.

Please do not hesitate to contact one of the following persons for further information and/or help in filling the application form.
