Senior Researcher and Postdoctoral research associate positions in Low-Temperature Detectors for Underground Astroparticle Physics
The Center for Underground Physics at Institute for Basic Science, Daejeon in South Korea has immediate openings for Senior Researcher and Postdoctoral research associates position in underground astroparticle physics. Successful candidates will be involved in low-temperature detector development for experiments on astroparticle physics including searches for neutrinoless double beta decay (AMoRE) and direct detection of dark matter. Most of the work will be carried in IBS laboratories in Daejeon, YangYang Underground Laboratory, and Yemilab at Jeounseon. Collaborative research on new experiments and novel detector technologies will be a part of the activities.
Candidates should have a Ph.D (in case of Postdoctoral Research Associate position should have a Ph.D in the past 5 years) and a strong experimental background in one or more of the following fields: cryogenic particle detection, characterization and fabrication of detector sensors, studies on condensed matter at low temperatures, Monte Carlo simulations, and other relevant subjects. The annual salary will be at least 49M KRW (roughly 46K USD) depending on skills and experience of the applicant.
For Senior Researcher, initial contract would be for two year, with possible extension up to three more years and for Postdoctoral research associates position, initial contract would be for one year, with possible extension for two more years. Those interested should send their CV, a brief description of their research interests in one page, a list of publications featuring three highlights, and two reference letters by January 21, 2021.
For more information, candidates should contact Yong-Hamb Kim at email@example.com. Application documents should be sent to Mr. Ma-Young Kim at firstname.lastname@example.org. Reference letters should be sent to Mr. Kim directly by the writers.
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
