This group will focus mostly on observational and theoretical studies in
physical cosmology, ranging from the early universe to interpretation
of observational surveys.

The position is for 2 years with a possible extension to a third year.

The start date for the position is flexible.

Applicants should upload a cover letter, a curriculum vitae and a statement of
research interests and research plan to academic jobs online website https://academicjobsonline.org/ajo/jobs/10215

Expected interview dates : December 6-7-11, 2017

The Department of Physics at ENS Paris invites applications for three JRC (Junior Research Chairs) at postdoctoral level. Appointments will be for two years with a possible one year extension.
The Department aims at recruiting outstanding candidates with international experience. Research activities can be experimental and/or theoretical ; this year, the Department aims at hiring a Junior Research Chai in theoretical Cosmology. For the two other positions, the program actively encourages experimental projects through a reserved budget.

Research themes should correspond to one of the following ones :
- Quantum physics : from atoms to condensed matter
- Biophysics : from the cell to the organism
- Non-linear physics : from the laboratory to the cosmos
- Statistical and theoretical physics

Some participation in teaching within ENS-ICFP (International Centre for Fundamental Physics and its Interfaces) Master program is part of the duties

In addition to an internationally competitive salary, ENS-ICFP provides an attractive travel allowance and research funds for experimentalists. The successful candidates are fully integrated into the Department of Physics and its constituent research laboratories.

The positions are funded by the 10-year ENS-ICFP grant, obtained through the French National Excellence initiative.

Applications must be exclusively submitted through AcademicJobsOnline(https://academicjobsonline.org/ajo/jobs/9296 )and should consist of :
- A cover letter
- A complete CV including a list of publications
- A research project taking into account possible interactions with research groups/faculty within the Department of Physics at Ecole normale supérieure (no more than 4 pages of A4).
- Three letters of recommendation from senior scientists, to be uploaded on AcademicJobsOnline.

Candidates are encouraged to make early contact with faculty to construct their project and should refer to these contacts in their 4-page research statement. I

Short-listed candidates will be interviewed (videoconferences) in early December 2017.

Only applications received by October 30, 2017 will be considered. The hiring committee will make offers late in 2017. Positions will start in September 2018.

For your information, one or two additional positions will be made available by the Philippe Meyer Institute.
