Estonian Science Foundation (ESF) runs two programs offering postdoc grants at Estonian research institutions:
The gravitation theory group at the Laboratory of Theoretical Physics, Institute of Physics, University of Tartu, Estonia is looking for a suitable postdoc candidate to apply for one of these grants, who would be able to contribute to or complement the
ongoing research of the group.
General research area: theoretical aspects of gravity;
Duration of the grant: 2 or 3 years.
Amount of the grant: up to 25,600 EUR per year for salary (pre-tax), 3,200 EUR per year for research costs, and a one-time relocation allowance to move in to Estonia.
Eligibility: The post-doctoral research grant can be applied for by a person who has been awarded a doctoral degree or an equivalent
qualification not earlier than five years before the start of the grant. (In case that, after obtaining the
degree, the applicant was on parental
leave or in compulsory military service, the period of qualification is extended by the period
of the parental leave or compulsory military service.)
NB! The postdoc application to ESF is submitted together by the applicant and the host institution.
Therefore interested candidates are first invited to send a CV, a list of publications, a brief research proposal, and a letter of recommendation to Dr. Piret Kuusk (firstname.lastname@example.org), head of the gravitation theory group.
The next deadline for applications is
