The CERN Theoretical Physics Department (CERN-TH) is seeking to fill a permanent research staff position. We are looking for outstanding researchers with internationally recognised leadership in any area of theoretical particle physics, broadly defined, but special attention will be paid to candidates active in lattice gauge theory. The position is devoted to full-time research. CERN-TH has substantial stable research funding at its disposal, systematically attracts a large number of top theorists on a range of positions, and has an active programme of visiting scientists and topical workshops.

Please help us to distribute the information to potential candidates.

Diversity has been an integral part of CERN’s mission since its foundation and is an established value of the Organization. Employing a diverse workforce is central to its success. Applications from minorities and under-represented groups are strongly encouraged.

For more information and for applications, please see:

A review of potential candidates will begin 1st May 2024 and will continue until the position is filled.

Nominations are also welcome and can be sent to

All information will be treated with strict confidentiality. 


CERN-TH has created some mailing lists to keep the theory community connected and informed. If you wish to receive information from CERN-TH, you are welcome to register to our mailing lists. You can also remove your name from any of our mailing lists at any time following the same link.

Our new mail list aims at reaching all theorists worldwide interested in our main scientific activities. It will be used only for general information of broad interest.
