The Astroparticle Physics and Astrophysics groups at the “Scuola Internazionale Superiore di Studi Avanzati” (SISSA) in Trieste, Italy, invite expressions of interest for a faculty position from outstanding candidates with a strong theoretical research record in the fields of Gravitational Wave Physics, Strong Gravity and Gravitational Astrophysics.
While it is currently foreseen that the appointment procedure will be activated at the assistant professor, tenure-track, level*, a more senior position may be considered.
The successful candidate is expected to work as an independent principal investigator, promoting and leading research activities to complement the current expertise of the SISSA groups in Particle Astrophysics, Gravitation Theory and Cosmology, as well as to attract external funds, take an active part in the SISSA PhD teaching programme and supervise graduate students.
Expressions of interest should be in English and only via Academic Jobs Online. They should include:
1. Curriculum Vitae with a complete publication list and the names of at least three referees.
2. Description of current research interests.
3. List of ten publications of greatest interest for the selection.
