I am part of the joint ICTP/SISSA statistical physics group

ICTP offers each year several of 2-year postdoc positions and every other year a 5-year senior postdoc position named after L.Boltzmann in condensed matter theory and statistical mechanics.

Other short-term positions for exchange students (in particular from developing countries) exist.

For the details on how to apply see our group page.

The following Google calendar contains the events (seminars, conferences and visitors dates) hosted by our group.

* I am currently on sabbatical in the New York/Princeton area (CUNY, Columbia and Princeton U.) and will return to Trieste in 2015
