Research Opportunities

ICTP visiting researcher programmes in HECAP

Short-term Visits

Opportunities for researchers from developing countries

The ICTP High Energy, Cosmology and Astroparticle Physics (HECAP) Section offers every year a number of grants for short-term visits.  The purpose of the visits is to perform theoretical studies in HECAP's areas of expertise and in close interaction with the Section's resident staff and visiting scientists.  Short-term visits may be for a maximum period of 3 months.

Scientists from developing countries are encouraged to apply. Preference will be given to requests for visits outside the summer period. Candidates should apply using the ICTP online application system.

A short research plan for the expected visit at ICTP should also be added and at least one letter of recommendation is required for junior scientists, postdocs and graduate students. The letter is to be sent separately by the referee after submission of the application.

Visit opportunities may also depend on the current pandemic situation.

Application deadline: 28 February 2022. Only successful applicants will be contacted by email.

A second call is foreseen with deadline 31 August 2022.

Postdoctoral Positions

The call for HECAP Postdoctoral Positions is now closed.

Other Visiting Opportunities

Other research and education opportunities in high energy physics are available through ICTP's Postgraduate Diploma Programme as well as its Associateship Scheme.
