“Severo Ochoa” postdoctoral positions in Theoretical and Experimental Particle Physics, Astroparticle Physics, Cosmology and Instrumentation R&D at IFAE Barcelona
The “Institut de Física d’Altes Energies” (IFAE) in Barcelona announces the opening of several (up to 5) postdoctoral positions for outstanding young scientists. These positions are funded under the Severo Ochoa Program for Scientific Excellence, a distinction recently awarded to IFAE.
The contracts will have an initial duration of 2 years, can be extended for up to 2 more years subject to mutual satisfaction, and will enjoy competitive salary and conditions, commensurate with the qualifications of the candidate.
Interested candidates with a promising record of scientific excellence in the areas of research of IFAE, namely theoretical particle physics, experimental particle physics (ATLAS and T2K), astroparticle physics (MAGIC and CTA), observational cosmology (DES, PAU and Euclid) and instrumentation development (ATLAS upgrades and medical imaging), should fill the application form at
and upload the requested information, which includes a cover letter, a CV, a statement of interest and the names and email addresses of between 3 and 5 possible referees.
The application review process will begin as early as December 1st, with an application deadline of December 15th, 2013. In case of a positive evaluation, hiring could proceed immediately after selection.
More calls are planned during 2014.
