The
Department of Physics at ENS Paris invites applications for
three 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. 

This
year, the Department aims at hiring a Junior Research Chair
in Statistical Physics who will actively work with the group
of G. Biroli (research topic: glassy, activated and complex
dynamics: from physics to machine learning). 

For
the two other positions, the program actively encourages
experimental projects through a reserved budget. 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  class="moz-txt-link-freetext"
