The Physics Department of Sapienza University of Rome invites applications for academic openings at the Associate and/or Full Professor level from any fields in Physics covered through a direct call procedure. A similar procedure resulted last year in the selection of three professors, recently endorsed by Sapienza University.
The Department of Physics has strong research groups in a number of fields over a wide range of interests. The Department of Physics is seeking established scientists with an outstanding record of high impact research, excellence and leadership. The successful candidate will be expected to actively contribute to the department’s academic program, its strategy and governance, as well as providing scientific leadership and to participate in large-scale grant applications.
The Direct Calls program of the Italian Ministry of Education, Universities and Research (MIUR), provides opportunities to fund academic positions to scientists and scholars who have been working abroad with an equivalent position for at least three years, or to recipients of European Research Council (ERC) grants. More details about Direct Calls program and eligibility criteria can be found below.
Applications must be submitted electronically at the email address firstname.lastname@example.org. Applicants are requested to submit a brief CV, a list of publications, a research statement and a teaching statement. Call closure: January 31, 2021.
The Department of Physics is committed to increasing the gender balance of its faculty and particularly welcomes applications from qualified women.
For successful candidates having held academic positions abroad, there are some tax benefits, as, for example, a tax relief on 90% of the salary that may be granted for a duration up to six years.
The Direct Calls program of the Italian Ministry of Education, Universities and Research (MIUR), provides opportunities to cover teaching posts through direct calls to Italian and foreign scholars meeting one of the following necessary requirements:
scholars who have been working abroad on a permanent teaching or research position in a foreign university or research institution (art. 1 c.9 L. n. 230/2005) for at least THREE years, and holding an academic position equivalent to that which they are applying to with this direct call;
scholars who have already worked in teaching or research capacities in Italian universities for at least THREE years on a direct call basis authorized by the Ministry of Education, Universities and Research (art. 1 c.9 L. 230/2005);
winners, as P.I., of ERC grants of at least three years duration, and that have not been completed for more than three years (art. 29 c. 7 L. n. 240/2010, Art. 7, c. 2, D. M. n. 635/2016).

The Physics Department of the University of Rome, La Sapienza, has a
long standing tradition of excellence in research. The department has
had a decisive role in the development of Modern Physics. The
department is active in all topical areas of fundamental and applied
physics and has a large number of international collaborations with
institutes in Italy (INFN, CNR, INAF, ASI, INGV) and worldwide (CERN,
KEK, PSI, SLAC, GSI, CNRS, BIFI). The Department was also selected by
the Italian Ministry of Education, Universities and Research (MIUR),
as Department of Excellence.
