Opening of Postdoctoral Researchers at Center for Nuclear Study, University of Tokyo

CNS has several devices in RIBF in RIKEN Nishina Center and pursues the experimental nuclear physics such as nuclear astrophysics and nuclear structure/reaction studies with radioactive isotope beams. We also have branches of fundamental physics with radioactive heavy elements, high-energy nuclear physics, nuclear theory and development of ion sources.

JOB TITLE: postdoctoral researcher, a few positions available

FIELD: Experimental and theoretical nuclear physics.
The successful candidates will work on experimental nuclear physics with radioactive isotopes mainly by using the devices of CNS (CRIB, SHARAQ, Ge array (GRAPE), OEDO, Active Target, etc), on fundamental physics with radioactive heavy elements, on high energy nuclear collisions at ALICE at LHC, or on nuclear structure theory.

ELIGIBILITY: They must hold a recent Ph.D degree in experimental/theoretical nuclear physics, or a related field by April 1, 2019.

One-year fixed-term employment contract, renewable up to March 31, 2022, according to research budget, research activity, and research achievements. The start of the employment is April 1, 2019 (negotiable).
