Post-Doc positions

The TPP Group announces the following Post-Doctoral positions.

SISSA post-doctoral fellowships (particle physics phenomenology)

The theoretical particle physics group of SISSA (Trieste, Italy) is expecting to open at least one postdoctoral position with starting date in autumn 2022 and a duration of 2 years. Extensions to a third year are subject to funds availability.

For full consideration, expressions of interest should be received by November 30, 2021. Candidates have to submit through this site ( a Curriculum Vitae, Publication List, Research Statement, and the contacts of three writers of Reference letters.

Contact: Aleksandr Azatov (

People interested in more formal aspects of high energy physics are invited to apply preferably via the common European postdoc application website:

indicating SISSA among the preferred institutions.

SISSA post-doctoral positions (QFT and Q-Gravity)

The TPP group invites applications for several postdoctoral position funded by the ERC Consolidator Grant "Non-perturbative Dynamics of Quantum Fields: from New Deconfined Phases of Matter to Quantum Black Holes."

The appointments will start in Fall 2022 for a period of two years, extendable to a third year depending on performance. The successful applicants will be part of a vibrant research program at the interface between non-perturbative quantum field theory, condensed matter physics, holography, quantum gravity and mathematical physics.

Permanent members related to the program include Francesco Benini, Matteo Bertolini, Giulio Bonelli, Sergio Cecotti and Marco Serone. The group maintains close contacts with the HEP groups at the ICTP (including Bobby Acharya, Atish Dabholkar, Mehrdad Mirbabayi, Joan Elias MirĂ³, Pavel Putrov, Giovanni Villadoro), the INFN (Sergio Benvenuti) and the University of Trieste (Lorenzo di Pietro, Roberto Valandro, Michele Cirafici), as well as the Phenomenology, Astroparticle Physics, Statistical Physics (including Pasquale Calabrese, Erik Tonni) and Condensed Matter Physics groups.

Candidates interested in the positions are invited to apply preferably via the common European postdoc application website:

indicating SISSA among the preferred institutions. Applications should include CV, research statement, list of publications, and three letters of recommendation. To obtain full consideration, applications should be received by November 30, 2021.

(Only for those candidates that did not apply on the European website before the closing date, there is the possibility to apply via the Academics Jobs Online website.)
