Kavli Institute for the Physics and Mathematics of the Universe (Kavli IPMU), The University of Tokyo Institutes for Advanced Study, has the ambitious goal to discover the fundamental laws of nature and to understand the universe from the synergistic perspectives of mathematics, theoretical and experimental physics, astronomy, and statistics. It is an international research institute with English as its official language, established in October 2007. More than a half of its full-time scientific members come from outside Japan.

We seek to build a diverse, highly interactive membership. Female and international applicants are strongly encouraged.
