Position Description:   URMs  

We seek candidates for the rank of associate professor or assistant professor in experimental cosmology and astrophysics using low-temperature detectors. We are interested in outstanding scientists with excellent track records and international recognition. The position is for five years, with the possibility of renewal or promotion to a tenured position(*) based on satisfactory job performance, continuing availability of funds, and ongoing operational needs. Salaries are comparable to those at other prestigious institutions. Financial support for starting-up research will also be provided. The appointee will work with one or more of the following PIs in QUP's low-temperature research cluster: Maurice Garcia-Sciveres, Masaya Hasegawa, Kaori Hattori, Masashi Hazumi, Adrian Lee, and Noriko Yamasaki. Projects in which the PIs are involved include LiteBIRD, low-mass dark matter search with TES, solar axion search, Simons Array, and Simons Observatory. 
 (*)As the host of QUP, KEK has committed to acquiring tenure positions for outstanding senior researchers hired at QUP (see the link.) 

Applicants should have a Ph.D. in Physics or a related field and more than three years of working experience after receiving a Ph.D. with an outstanding record in experimental cosmology, particle physics, or related fields.

As a WPI research center, QUP is designed to establish an international environment where more than 30% of researchers are non-Japanese. English is the official language of QUP. We will build a diverse community of scientists and strongly encourage female and international applicants. About 40% of initial PIs at QUP are female.

The posting shall remain open until the positions are filled. However, for full consideration, we encourage all candidates to apply by Jan 31, 2024. Applicants should submit curriculum vitae (with an email address and citizenship), a research statement, and a list of publications. Applicants should also ensure that at least five letters of reference are submitted on their behalf.
