The Postdoctoral fellow will assist the gamma-ray research groups at Chiba University and at the Institute for Cosmic Ray Research (ICRR), The University of Tokyo, Japan. ICRR is a research center in the fields of cosmic ray and astroparticle physics and has a long-standing history in these fields. The high-energy gamma-ray group at ICRR / Chiba is deeply involved in the CTA project, in its construction, data analysis and interpretation of the CTA Large Size Telescopes (LSTs).

We are looking for a postdoctoral fellow who can work for the MAGIC (Major Atmospheric Gamma Imaging Cherenkov) telescopes and CTA (Cherenkov Telescope Array) projects. The successful applicant will perform physics analysis with multi-year MAGIC and LST-1 experimental data. He/ She will conduct research in multi messenger astrophysics focussing on variable and transient sources in the gamma-ray sky: 1. Within the predetermined research scope, lead and perform multi-year MAGIC and transient LST-1 data analysis. 2. Work with PhD and graduating student(s), supporting the supervision of the research activity. 3. Other duties as assigned, which may include attending scientific conferences and meetings. Since MAGIC and CTA are large international projects, applicants with an international mind are strongly encouraged.
