The goals of the ECT** a) to arrange in-depth research on topical problems at the forefront of contemporary developments in theoretical nuclear physics b) to foster interdisciplinary contacts between nuclear physics and neighbouring fields such as particle physics, astrophysics, condensed matter physics and the quantal physics of small systems c) to encourage talented young physicists by arranging for them to participate in the activities of the ECT*, by organising training projects and establishing networks of active young researchers d) to strengthen the interaction between theoretical and experimental studies.

Scientific activities at ECT*
Joint Position in Hadronic Physics ECT* - HadronPhysics I3 The ECT* (European Center for Theoretical Studies in Nuclear Physics and Related Areas) and the Hadron Physics I3 open a joint position for a Research Associate (assistant professor level) at ECT*. The successful candidate is expected to contribute to the scientific activities of ECT* and carry research in the field of hadronic physics (including Quantum Chromodynamics and hadron structure, matter under extreme conditions and ultrarelativistic heavy ion collisions). The initial appointment is for 3 years with a possibility of extension depending on scientific policy considerations and availability of resources. …………………………………………………………………………………………… Deadline for applications and receipt of recommendation letters is January 15, The selection will be carried out by a joint committee ECT* - HadronPhysics I3.

From NuPECC Long Range Plan NuPECC recognizes that in the last decade not enough attention has been put into maintaining the expertise and activity in theory at universities across Europe. The current situation requires vigorous and instant action to ensure that the physics goals presented in the LRP can be realized. In this context, NuPECC also recognizes the very positive role played in nuclear theory by the ECT* in Trento, especially in its mission of strengthening unifying contacts between nuclear and hadron physics. Therefore the future support for this Center should be maintained and expanded.
Protocol of Agreement between NuPECC and ECT* (renewed in 2003 for five years) NuPECC as a part of its efforts to strengthen and coordinate nuclear physics and nuclear science, will assist ECT* in its initiatives aimed at securing financial support, on a international basis, for the scientific activities of ECT*.
