The Galician Institute of High Energy Physics, IGFAE, at the University of Santiago de Compostela, invites applications for research associate positions within its Global Talent 2 Program. As Maria de Maetzu Excellence Unit, IGFAE Global Talent Program aims to recruit outstanding postdoctoral researchers capable of preparing and leading an ambitious research project within the Institute. Several positions are available in an extensive search that includes High-Energy Experimental Physics, Astroparticle Physics and Cosmology (including gravitational wave research), Nuclear Physics and Theoretical Physics, including phenomenology and more formal aspects, as well as Quantum Information and Computing. Opening new lines of research, complementing those already existing at the Institute, is encouraged.
The positions are for a maximum of three years with additional funds for research and the possibility to supervise PhD students and postdocs.
