Call for Applications for Associate Director Position of "Center for Underground Physics" in the Institute for Basic Science (IBS)
IBS invites applicants for the position of Associate Director who are senior-level researchers with high research potentials, and are able to run his or her own research group in collaboration with the directors within their Research Centers.
1. Introduction of the research center
The Center for Underground Physics (CUP), established as a headquarter research center of Institute for Basic Science (IBS) in 2013 aims to conduct basic researches for beyond standard model physics to deepen our understanding on the origin and structure of the universe. We try to find out if the neutrinos are Majorana or Dirac particles, establish the theory for neutrino mass, and further understand the origin of the asymmetry of matter-antimatter in the universe by confirming the neutrinoless double beta decay process (AMoRE experiment). We try to find the weakly interacting massive particles (WIMP), one of most promising candidate for dark matter, by conducting experiments using ultra-low radioactivity crystal detectors (COSINE experiment). In addition, we are developing new detection techniques for more precise experiments than the current ones. CUP operates a 700-meter deep underground laboratory at Yangyang, and also constructing a deeper and wider new underground laboratory at Handuk iron mine. We will produce the worldwide new experimental results by integrating three major techniques, growing ultra-low radioactivity crystals by high-level purification technique, ultra-low temperature detector technique, ultra-low radioactivity measurement technique.
