About the employer

The Theoretical Physics Institute (IPhT) is a laboratory of fundamental research, located in Saclay, about 20 km south-west of Paris.

The research performed at the IPhT aims at better understanding the laws which govern our universe and its organization. It encompasses most of the great subjects of modern theoretical physics:

  • High energy physics (QCD and hadronic matter, physics beyond the standard model, supersymmetric gauge theories)
  • Cosmology (large scale structures in the Universe, dark matter, dark energy)
  • Quantum gravity and string theory
  • Exact methods and mathematical physics (integrable systems, conformal theories, matrix models, enumerative geometry, classical and quantum dynamical systems)
  • Condensed matter physics and quantum physics (high Tc superconductivity, quantum magnetism, cold atoms)
  • Statistical physics and out of equilibrium physics (disordered systems, glasses, exclusion models, fluid dynamics)
  • Biophysics (biopolymers, biological networks), complex systems and dynamical networks

The IPhT comprises about 90 staff members and also hosts permanently many short term visitors.
