Position Description:    

* this map is a best-effort approximation. Open in Google Maps directly.

The position is dedicated to the study of particle physics theory under the KAKENHI project on “Promotion of muon particle physics in an international framework.” We seek individuals who conduct researches on particle phenomenology at KEK theory center. The employees are encouraged to visit PSI/CERN/FNAL etc. for about six months during the employment period and work on topics related to muon physics.

Term: Up to the end of March 2026 with the contract renewed every year.
Start of the term: From June 1, 2023 (the starting date is negotiable).

Appl. Deadline: by March 31, 2023, Japan time
(The deadline may be extended until the position is filled.)
