Antonello Scardicchio

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.
