LD (5+1 year) Staff Positions

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 th.ld.staffsearch@cern.ch. 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 th.ld.staffsearch@cern.ch.

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.
