Senior Professorship in the School of Theoretical Physics

The Dublin Institute for Advanced Studies (DIAS) is a statutory research body dedicated to fundamental research. Established in 1940, it was modelled on the Institute for Advanced Study in Princeton. Erwin Schrödinger, followed by Walter Heitler and John L. Synge were the early Senior Professors and Directors of the School of Theoretical Physics.

The Governing Board of the School of Theoretical Physics wishes to nominate an exceptional scientist for appointment by the President of Ireland to the position of Senior Professor in the School. Hence, DIAS is now seeking applications for this senior permanent position from the highest calibre scientists who are operating at the forefront of their field in any area of theoretical physics.

The successful candidate will have an established international research reputation and will be capable of leading an innovative research programme in the School. As this is a dedicated research position, there are no undergraduate or teaching responsibilities but mentoring of research scholars and fellows is expected. Additional information about the position can be found here
