Researcher Position at The Center for Axion and Precision Physics Research (CAPP) , IBS
The IBS center for Axion and Precision Physics Research (IBS/CAPP) is seeking to fill one research position at a level depending on candidate qualifications:
1. Introduction of the research center
The Center for Axion and Precision Physics Research (CAPP) is funded by the Institute for Basic Science (IBS) in Korea. CAPP is located in Daejeon City at the Korea Advanced Institute of Science and Technology (KAIST). Our center aims to launch a state of the art axion dark matter experiment. CAPP will also play a leading role in the proton electric dipole moment experiment and will participate in other axion, DM, EDM, muon g-2 experiments around the world.
The IBS Center for Axion and Precision Physics Research will explore the dark-matter axion. Our first aim is to use a method suggested by Prof. P. Sikivie, to convert the axions into microwave photons inside a large volume, high magnetic field, and a high quality microwave cavity. We are also exploring different geometries that can prove to be advantageous. The axion microwave experiment is going to be launched at the KAIST campus site-using top of the line equipment and technology. The expected conversion rate is very small, of order 10-23W, making it the faintest signal possible in a realistic experiment.
2. Job description
A candidate with PhD or (Master’s with in experience) in nuclear or particle physics to work on the installation and running of the CAST-CAPP axion dark matter experiment at CERN, but need to keep as base our institute in Korea. Later on, this candidate will work in Korea at the local axion dark matter experiments.
A typical duration of the above positions is five years, but in very special cases they can be extended. Korea is a modern country with an advanced economic and technological sector. Foreigners and women are particularly welcome to apply. Salaries and benefits are competitive with international standards.
