 Professor position in Astrophysics

Research field: Origin of galaxies and
Cosmology

Ecole Normale Superieure (Paris) opens a full professor position in its
Physics Department, with a possibility to start as early as September
2017. French and foreign applications are welcome.

The successful applicant will establish a research program in a domain
related to the origin and evolution of galaxies, ranging from fundamental
questions in cosmology, such as the nature of dark matter and dark energy,
to the non linear physics of baryons, which leads to the emergence of the
observable Universe. The candidates must explain how they will
scientifically interact within the Physics Department, and with groups
active in their field in the Paris area. In addition a theoretical or
practical involvement into the development and the exploitation of major
observing facilities, which are expected to strongly impact their field in
coming years, would be an asset.

The successful applicant will establish a training program in Astrophysics
at ENS and take part in the broader teaching program in Physics.

Applicants must follow the instructions given at url:
http://www.ens.fr/page-accueil/informations-pratiques/recrutement/article/recrutement-des-enseignants?lang=en
before March 30th, 2017.

Weizmann Institute (Zohar Komargodski)
Yale University (David Poland)
Yang Institute, Stony Brook University (Leonardo Rastelli)

Applications should consist of a CV, a list of publications, a summary of research interests, and three letters of recommendation. Applicants must have received the Ph.D. degree prior to the start of the appointment. The cover letter should describe how the applicant will contribute to the goals of the collaboration and specify a ranked list of collaboration sites for which they wish to be considered. If relevant, the applicant may suggest a joint position if they feel it is justified by their research aims. For full consideration, applications should be received by December 1, 2016.

Application Materials Required:

Submit the following items online at this website:

Cover Letter

 Junior Research Chairs Department of Physics, ENS (Ecole normale supérieure), Paris

Closing date: Octobre 30, 2016
Expected interview dates: December 7-8-9, 2016

The Department of Physics at ENS Paris invites applications for four 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; the Department actively encourages experimental projects.

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/7419 )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
