Postdoctoral research associate position on AMoRE experiment at IBS (Institute for Basic Science), Korea
The center for underground physics (CUP, https://cupweb.ibs.re.kr) at IBS in Korea invites applications for a Postdoctoral research associate position to work on AMoRE experiment. The position is full-time for an initial one-year and extendable up to three-year. The annual salary will be at least 49M KRW (roughly 46K USD) depending on skills and experience of the applicant. Candidates should have a Ph.D. in the past 5 years.
The AMoRE is an experiment to search for neutrinoless double beta decay utilizing low temperature sensors coupled with molybdate crystals containing enriched Mo-100 isotopes. We are currently running AMoRE-I with 6 kg of the molybdate crystals, and are preparing AMoRE-II experiment with 200 kg of molybdate crystals which is scheduled to begin in early 2022 at the new underground lab, Yemilab in Korea.
The successful candidate will work on some fields of the preparation of AMoRE-II detector systems, the background reduction, the data acquisition and analysis, the simulations for understanding backgrounds, etc.
Applicants should send a CV, a brief research statement, a list of publications, and two letters of recommendation to Mr. Ma-Young Kim (email@example.com). Any questions or inquires for the position shall be asked to Prof. Yeongduk Kim (firstname.lastname@example.org).
For the full consideration, the application and letters should be submitted by January 21, 2021 while the application is opened until the positions are filled.
Support Systems for International Researchers
Roughly one-third of all researchers at IBS are from overseas. These international researchers have three support options to adapt to life in Korea. First, IBS supplies a 24/7 service called the Global Help Desk which offers personalized help via email and phone and provides newsletters. Second, IBS created its own support website called Living in Korea with hundreds of pages of contents and hundreds more pictures. Third, every Center has several admin staff who help with a number of work and non-work situations. For more information on these support options, please see the related page on Living in Korea at https://centers.ibs.re.kr/html/living_en/overview/support.html
