Position Description:    

*** the list date or deadline for this position has passed and new applications are no longer being accepted. ***

We are seeking to fill one four-year postdoctoral researcher position in the area of the structure formation theory and dark matter <https://academicjobsonline.org/ajo/jobs/17648>

The formal affiliation will be the Kavli IPMU. Established in 2007, the Kavli IPMU aims to discover the fundamental laws of nature and to understand the Universe by bringing together mathematicians, statisticians, theoretical and experimental physicists, and astronomers. English is the official language of the Kavli IPMU and more than half of its full-time scientific members come from outside of Japan. We are building a diverse community of scientists, and we strongly encourage female applicants. 

The position is funded by the KAKENHI project, "Dark matter search using theories of cosmic structure formation"(20H05861, PI: Shin'ichiro Ando), which is the sub-group (Keikaku-Kenkyu) C02 under Grant-in-Aid for Transformative Research Areas (A), "What is dark matter? - Comprehensive study of the huge discovery space in dark matter" (PI: Hitoshi Murayama). 

 The position is for four years until the end of March 2025. The appointment can start from 1 April 2021 or later, but this can also be negotiated depending on circumstances. Applicants should have a Ph.D. in physics or related areas by the starting date of the position. 

The successful candidates will work closely with Shin'ichiro Ando (GRAPPA Institute at University of Amsterdam / Kavli IPMU) and other team members: Neal Dalal (Perimeter Institute), Takahiro Nishimichi (Kyoto U), Takashi Okamoto (Hokkaido U), Masato Shirasaki (NAOJ), and Atsushi Taruya (Kyoto U). 

The intended research projects include, but are not limited to, developing theoretical models of non-WIMP dark matter (such as axions, primordial black holes, warm dark matter including sterile neutrinos, and self-interacting dark matter) and impact on small-scale structure formation. No background in the dark matter particle phenomenology is required. 

We encourage all candidates to apply by January 15, 2021. Applicants should submit curriculum vitae (with email address and citizenship), a statement of research interests, and a list of publications. Applicants should also ensure that at least three letters of reference are submitted on their behalf. The language of the application materials and letters can be either English or Japanese. 

They should be uploaded at Application Form<https://academicjobsonline.org/ajo/jobs/17648/apply>.
