APCTP

Leaders of Independent Junior Research Group (JRG) 2020

The Asia Pacific Center for Theoretical Physics (APCTP) opens a few positions for leaders of Independent Junior Research Group (JRG) in theoretical physics and related fields.

The APCTP (https://www.apctp.org), founded in 1996, is a non-governmental organization aiming for an international center dedicated to excellence in research and the training of young scientists in the Asia-Pacific region.

JOB DESCRIPTION:

The aim of these positions is to strengthen the research capacity of the Center by forming new JRGs. The Center has sixteen member countries and forms a research network center of the Asia Pacific region in the field of theoretical physics through various academic activities. We encourage applications in the area of theoretical physics, including but not limited to astrophysics, condensed matter physics, nuclear/hadron physics, particle physics, string theory, and statistical physics. Current JRGs at the Center can be found at the following link at https://www.apctp.org/sub02/index44.php?mcode=44. Each JRG leader is well ensured academic independence and encouraged to build his/her own research group. Leaders are also expected to promote and take advantage of the connection with other research institutions in the Asia Pacific region and beyond.

REMUNERATION:
Funding is initially available for three years, renewable up to two additional years depending on the research performance and the availability of resources for the program. An annual salary, including severance pay, will start from KRW 65,000,000 depending on research experience and qualification. In addition to the salary, a rent-free house, personal office space, and research grant of KRW 80,000,000 per year along with part of relocation costs are provided. The grant can be used for hiring postdoctoral fellows and students, as well as for covering research activities. The starting date is expected to be April 1, 2020, but is negotiable.

APPLICATION:
You should apply by sending the application form which can be downloaded at the APCTP website (https://www.apctp.org/myboard/read.php?Board=job&Board=job&id=24) via email by October 3, 2019 (UTC +09:00). You must submit with your application:

  1. a curriculum vitae;
  2. a short description of research accomplishments with a publication list;
  3. a statement of proposed work;
  4. two letters of recommendation (reference letter), arranged to be sent directly from your referees by the same deadline.

NOTE: Each document submitted for items 1 to 4 above must be in English, and the first 3 should be combined in a single PDF file, unsigned and not encrypted.
