Visiting Fellow Applications

Department of Theoretical Physics, TIFR

The Theoretical Physics Department of the Tata Institute of Fundamental Research selects a few postdoctoral Visiting Fellows every year in December-January and in May-June. These are one-year positions but can be renewed for maximum up to three years. These positions are available to anyone who has a Ph.D. degree in Theoretical Physics or who has submitted a thesis to a recognized Ph.D.-granting institution for such a degree. Benefits in addition to the salary include medical support inside the campus and possibly on campus housing.

Candidates with more than one year of postdoctoral experience and with exceptional academic records will be considered for a prestigious Jawaharlal Nehru postdoctoral fellowship which has internationally competitive salary.

Successful candidates will carry out research at the Theoretical Physics department and will have opportunities to collaborate with the members of the department, who work in topics including cosmology and astroparticle physics, condensed matter and statistical physics, electroweak particle physics, strong interaction physics including lattice QCD, and string theory and mathematical physics.

Applications for the midyear selection is now open. Deadline is April 30th, 2018. Applicants need to apply via Academic Jobs Online (AJO), with covering letter, full CV, list of publications, and a statement of research interests.
