Position Description:    

*** The account for Magnetized Plasma Physics and Astrophysics Group, APCTP has expired and new applications are no longer accepted. ***

The Junior Research Group (JRG), “Magnetized Plasma Physics and Astrophysics”, of Asia Pacific Centre for Theoretical Physics (APCTP), Pohang, Korea invites applications for one or more postdoctoral fellow positions starting Fall 2023. The target starting date is Sept 1st, but is negotiable.

APCTP, founded in 1996, is an international organization dedicated to excellence in research and the training of young scientists in the Asia-Pacific region. APCTP offers a great research environment with strong connections to a number of active theoretical and experimental research groups at the Pohang University of Science and Technology (POSTECH). APCTP has broad international agreements with many leading institutions around the globe for scientific exchanges.

The postdoctoral fellow will primarily collaborate with the JRG leader, Prof. Young Dae Yoon, on various topics pertaining to fundamental magnetized plasma physics such as magnetic reconnection, magnetogenesis, plasma relaxation and self-organization, magnetized turbulence, wave-particle interaction, and stochastic heating. There are also opportunities to work on the field of accelerator and beam dynamics. A PhD in physics or a closely related field is required by the starting date. Applicants from historically underrepresented backgrounds are especially welcome.

The appointment is initially for one year but will be extended up to two additional years contingent upon funding and research performance

Applicants should submit a cover letter, a research statement (2 pages), and a curriculum vitae including a publication list and contact information for two references via the Academic Jobs Online website (https://academicjobsonline.org/ajo/jobs/24784). These positions remain open until filled, but applications received by 20th of May 2023 will receive full consideration.
