Tenure-track position in underground astroparticle experiments

Tenure-track position in underground astroparticle experiments

The Center for Underground Physics (CUP, http://cupweb.ibs.re.kr/html/cup_en/) at the Institute for Basic Science (IBS, http://www.ibs.re.kr/eng.do ) in Daejeon, Korea invites outstanding researchers for tenure-track positions to lead researches on the underground particle astrophysics. At present CUP is conducting dark matter search experiments (KIMS, COSINE), a double beta decay experiment (AMORE), and a neutrino experiment (NEOS). CUP develops low-temperature phonon-scintillation detectors based on MMC sensors for the AMoRE and KIMS-LT and also develops ultra-low background crystal growing techniques. We further conduct R&D for new detection technology for future underground experiments. The center operates Yangyang Underground Laboratory (Y2L) in addition to the ground laboratories at IBS headquarter in Daejeon, and have a plan to construct a new underground laboratory by the year of 2019.

Candidates  should have a strong research experience in either ultra-low level radiation measurements and purification or low temperature detector development.  The position is for tenure-track researchers at IBS, and the tenure evaluation will be made within six years from the starting year.

Those interested should send their CV, research plan in one page, a publication list featuring three highlights, and three reference letters by Jan 31, 2017. For more information, candidates should contact Yeongduk Kim (ydkim@ibs.re.kr). Application documents should be sent to Mr. Byungjin Choi (bjchoi@ibs.re.kr). Reference letters should be sent to Mr. Choi directly from the writers.
