Center for Theoretical Physics of the Universe (CTPU) ( at Institute for Basic Science ( in Korea invites applications for postdoctoral positions in Theoretical High Energy Physics, Cosmology and String Phenomenology, which can start anytime in March - September (later time is negotiable), 2020. The initial appointments will be for 2 years, and can be extended for an additional year subject to the performance review and funding situation.

The research group at CTPU involves 6 faculty members (Kiwoon Choi, Sanghyeon Chang, Kenji Kadota, Chang Sub Shin, Seodong Shin and Seung-Joo Lee (to join on April 2020)) and 12 postdoctoral research fellows. We also have affiliate faculty members (Myeonghun Park and Kyu Jung Bae) who are actively working with our group members. The official language at the center is English.

Research interests of our group cover broad areas of high energy physics and cosmology, including physics beyond the Standard Model, collider phenomenology, dark matter, early Universe cosmology, large scale structure of the Universe, string compactifications and their phenomenological consequences.

We have strong ties to the cosmology group at KASI ( We also have close relations with the experimental centers hosted by IBS, the Center for Axion and Precision Physics Research ( and the Center for Underground Physics (

Applications should include CV, publication list, research statement and at least three letters of recommendation. For a full consideration, application materials including the letters should be submitted by December 15, 2019 through Academic Jobs Online.
