The CERN Theoretical Physics Department (CERN-TH) is seeking candidates for Limited Duration (LD) research staff positions. We are looking for outstanding researchers in all areas of theoretical particle physics, broadly defined. The positions have a duration of 5 years (usually extended to a sixth year) and are devoted to full-time research. CERN-TH has substantial stable research funding at its disposal, systematically attracts a large number of top theorists in a range of positions, and has an active programme of visiting scientists and topical workshops.

Candidates can express their interest by applying here, providing a CV and a list of three names and e-mail addresses of references, which the Search Committee may contact. Nominations are also strongly encouraged and can be submitted via All information about applicants, nominators and nominees will be treated in strictest confidence. Applications submitted before 23 November 2020 will receive immediate consideration in the ongoing search. However, CERN-TH has regular openings for LD staff positions and all applications, irrespectively of their submission dates, will be kept for a period of two years and considered in subsequent searches. For any enquiry regarding the positions, please contact

Diversity has been an integral part of CERN’s mission since its foundation and is an established value of the Organization. Employing a diverse workforce is central to its success.

CERN-TH has created some mailing lists to keep the theory community connected and informed. If you wish to receive information from CERN-TH, you are welcome to register to our mailing lists. You can also remove your name from any of our mailing lists at any time following the same link.

Our new mail list aims at reaching all theorists worldwide interested in our main scientific activities. It will be used only for general information of broad interest.
