Center for Nuclear Study

The University of Tokyo





Dear colleagues,

The Center for Nuclear Study at the University of Tokyo is calling for applications for postdoctoral research fellows in the field of experimental and theoretical nuclear physics. Details can be found below. We would appreciate it, if you could distribute the advertisement to potential candidates. Sincerely,

Susumu Shimoura

Director of Center for Nuclear Study, University of Tokyo

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, 2020.


One-year fixed-term employment contract, renewable up to March 31, 2023, according to research budget, research activity, and research achievements. The start of the employment is April 1, 2020 (negotiable). Health and unemployment insurance plans are available.

SALARY: ~ 300,000 yen/month (gross). Additionally commuting expense will be covered.


(1) CV with UTokyo format (2) List of Publication/Talks/etc. (3) Research summary and future plan at CNS (4) Names and contact details of reference The above materials have to be uploaded to the file server with the PDF file. We will inform you on the URL of the file server and also the password. Please contact with email before you submit your application materials.

DEADLINE OF APPLICATION: January 22th (Wed.) 2020

After initial screening with the application form, interviews will be arranged in the end of January. Interviews will take place at Wako campus. They consist of a presentation of your research achievements and plans followed by an interview. For applicants from abroad, the interview will be conducted via Skype or TV conference system.

Dr. Javier Menéndez receives Zdzisław Szymański Prize

Dr. Javier Menéndez from the Center for Nuclear Study* received Zdzisław Szymański Prize for the year 2019.

(Excerpt from Univ. Warsaw web page)
The Prize has been awarded to the Laureate “for outstanding contributions to theoretical studies of nuclear structure, in particular for profound insights relevant to the search for neutrino-less double beta decay and the detection of dark matter.“
According to the Prize Regulations, the Prize consists of a certificate citing the contributions made by the Laureate and of a honorarium for the lecture delivered by the Laureate.
This Prize is awarded every second year to one individual for outstanding accomplishments in the area of theoretical or experimental studies of the properties of atomic nuclei. The Prize is awarded by the Dean of the Faculty of Physics of the Warsaw University, based on the recommendations of the Selection Committee (chair = Prof. Marek Pfützner) of the Prize.
