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. Kavli IPMU is on the Kashiwa campus of the University of Tokyo and has a Kamioka Satellite. More than a half of its fulltime scientific members come from outside Japan. Its annual budget is approximately $13M.
Kavli IPMU has been performing a variety of research programs on neutrinos and dark matter at the Kamioka Satellite. Kavli IPMU has a close relationship to the Institute for Cosmic Ray Research, the University of Tokyo and the Neutrino Center of Tohoku University and been conducted cooperative experiments using Super-Kamiokande, T2K, KamLAND-Zen and XMASS.
Kavli IPMU invites applications for an Assistant or Associate Professor position with interests in the area of experimental astroparticle physics, especially direct dark matter search experiments. A successful candidate will carry out the current dark matter experiment, XMASS, and be expected to play a leading role to establish a future direction of dark matter search with large-scale detectors.
Junior candidates will be considered for a tenure-track assistant professor, while exceptionally qualified candidates will be considered for a tenured associate professor position.
Applications should include at least 6 reference letters, a cover letter, a curriculum vitae, a research statement, and bibliography of publications. Applications should be submitted electronically to https://academicjobsonline.org/ajo?apply-133-8679 (AcademicJobsOnline).
Review of applications begins January 20, 2017 and will continue until the position is filled. However, we strongly recommend that all materials arrive by this date, though later submissions will be considered.
