  • We look for a postdoctoral fellow in the early stage of their career with a Ph.D. (at the contract commencement date) in theoretical particle physics, astroparticle physics, cosmology or adjacent fields. The ideal candidate is expected to have expertise in a range of topics; they should be interested in dark matter phenomenology with focus on feebly coupled dark sectors and multi-component dark matter, in gravitational waves from first-order phase transitions, in neutrino mass models and theoretical approaches to the problem of flavour. Former foreign experience is expected.
