The International Center for Hadron Astrophysics (ICEHAP) at Chiba University, Japan, invites applicants for a Full Professorship in the field of high energy neutrino astronomy and its applications to multi-messenger astronomy. The successful candidate is expected to be a leader in developing a strong research program to probe astronomical phenomena with the multi-messenger observations driven by the detection of high energy neutrinos with the IceCube neutrino observatory and its future upgrade, the IceCube-Gen2 facility.

 ICEHAP at Chiba University is one of the world-leading research groups on high energy neutrino astronomy. Achievements led by ICEHAP include the first discovery of the PeV-energy neutrinos, world-leading cosmic neutrino searches in the ultra-high energy region, discovery of the anti-electron-neutrino induced Glashow resonance, as well as the first identification of an astronomical source emitting ultrahigh-energy neutrinos with IceCube 170922A. Information about the history and scientific results from IceCube can be found at . ICEHAP also plays several core roles in the development and production of optical detectors for the on-going IceCube Upgrade, and is currently deeply involved with the design of the detectors to be deployed for IceCube-Gen2. Futher details are described at ICEHAP and Chiba university provide generous research support, including dedicated funds for personnel, computing facilities, and laboratory equipment for detector development should it fit the proposed research program. The successful candidate is also expected to acquire external research funding and establish a competitive research project in the field of particle astrophysics and multi-messenger astronomy. Cross-appointment arrangements can be made, if necessary, for a highly qualified candidate.

Applicants must hold a Ph.D or equivalent in physics or a closely related field, and several years of post-doctoral experience. The review of applications will begin April 18th, 2022, however, applications will be accepted until the position is filled.

Citizens of all nations are welcome to apply. Chiba University is an equal opportunity employer and values diversity. We are particularly interested in candidates who can contribute to the diversity of our academic community. ICEHAP is committed to promoting cross-disciplinary research of neutrino astronomy and relevant fields in a multi-cultural environment. About half of the researchers in the Division of Neutrino Astronomy are non-Japanese citizens.
