Candidates for CIDEGENT Senior Postdoctoral Fellowships 2022 on particle, astroparticle and nuclear physics and their applications


The Instituto de Física Corpuscular (IFIC, Valencia, Spain) invites expressions of interest for applications to the CIDEGENT Senior Postdoctoral Fellowships 2022 call. We welcome applications related to all research lines of the Institute.

IFIC is a joint center of the Spanish Research Council (Consejo Superior de Investigaciones Científicas, CSIC) and the University of Valencia devoted to research in Nuclear, Particle and Astroparticle Physics, both experiment and theory, and applications to Medical Physics and other fields of Science and Technology.

Research lines at IFIC includes experimental astroparticle, neutrino, nuclear and accelerator-based high energy physics, as well as applications. The institute is involved in the following experiments: ATLAS, MoEDAL, LHCb, Belle-II, LCC, ANTARES, KM3NeT, NEXT, T2K, DUNE, NUSTAR@FAIR, BRIKEN, ISOLDE, n_TOF and AGATA. Theoretical research includes: high-energy physics phenomenology; high energy theoretical physics: quantum black holes, supergravity and cosmology; theoretical astroparticle physics and cosmology; QCD and strong interactions; effective field theories in hadron and nuclear physics.

The duration of the grant is 4 years, with a possible extension of 2 additional years. The grant includes a gross salary of €53,000 per year for the applicant, plus a budget of up to €50,000 per year to implement a research project. Applicants must meet one of the following requirements:

a) to be beneficiary of an ERC Starting or Consolidator grant hosted in a university or research centre outside the Comunitat Valenciana;

b) to have passed Phase 1 of the ERC (Starting/Consolidator) grant evaluation process or have been a beneficiary of a Ramón y Cajal or MSCA-IF grant;

c) to have at least 6 years’ experience following the award of their doctorate and have completed one or more post-doctoral stays in internationally renowned research centres outside the Comunitat Valenciana that add up to a period of at least three years.

The official deadline for applications is January 27, 2022. Only a limited number of applications will be endorsed by IFIC. Please send your expression of interest no later than January 3, 2022 to:, including a CV and a 1-page summary of the research project you would submit to this call if selected by IFIC.
