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 highly qualified post-doctoral fellows to work on the dark matter search (KIMS, COSINE), double beta decay (AMORE), neutrino experiments, and low-temperature detector development. The center operates Yangyang Underground Laboratory (Y2L) in addition to ground laboratories at Daejeon, Korea, and have a plan to construct a new underground laboratory by the year of 2019.
Candidates should have a Ph.D. in experimental physics, with experience in one or more of the following fields preferred ; low temperature detector development, fabrication of (superconducting) sensors and detectors, electronics and DAQ system, data analysis, Monte Carlo simulations, and/or R&D for new detectors. Occasional travel to Yangyang underground laboratory will be required. Candidates with outstanding capabilities will be considered as a tenure-track position at IBS. Research fellows are for a period of initial 2 years, with the possible extension for 3 more years. Starting salary ranges between $50,000 and $ 100,000 depending on career.
These positions will remain open for a minimum of 3 months after which they will close when qualified candidates are identified and/or hired.Those interested should send their CV, a brief description of their research interests in one page, a list of publications featuring three highlights, and three reference letters.
For more information, candidates should contact Hyunsu Lee (email@example.com) or Yong-Hamb Kim (firstname.lastname@example.org). Application documents should be sent to Mr. Byungjin Choi (email@example.com). Reference letters should be sent to Mr. Choi directly from the writers.
