    KITP Seeks A Deputy Director

    The Kavli Institute for Theoretical Physics seeks to appoint a Deputy Director, starting as early as September 1, 2017. The Deputy Director works closely with the Director in planning the Institute's 12 yearly research programs and plays a prominent role in outreach planning, documentation of outcomes, and in many aspects of administering the Institute.

  • Charlie Munger Invests $65,000,000 to Build a Residence for KITP's Visitors

    Charlie Munger has announced his $65,000,000 donation to the Kavli Institute for Theoretical Physics. This donation will be used to build and furnish a Residence for the KITP's visiting scientists. Designed with physicists in mind, this 75,000 square foot facility will house the majority of KITP's thousand yearly visitors and their families in a comfortable and intimate setting that inspires informal scientific interactions. The visitor offices and intense collaborative interactions that are the hallmark of KITP's mission will, of course, remain in Kohn Hall.
