Kavli Institute for the Physics and Mathematics of the Universe, the University of Tokyo
, invites applications for a Postdoctoral Position in XMASS, a direct dark matter experiment at the Kamioka Observatory.
XMASS is a single-phase liquid xenon detector to look for dark matter particles with a largest mass of 850kg and with the lowest energy threshold of 0.3 keV among the operation liquid xenon experiments. We will soon accumulate a full year of physics data after the refurbishment of the detector to reduce background. For our next step, we envision to build a 5 ton detector called XMASS1.5.
The successful candidate will be expected to participate in both software and hardware development and to analyze data. Programming skills in C++ and data analysis experience are required. Applicants must have a PhD in experimental particle/astroparticle/nuclear physics. Kavli IPMU is one of the leading institutions of the XMASS experiment.
A term of this appointment is till the end of September, 2017. Interested candidates should include a CV, research statement, publication list, and at least three letters of recommendation and upload your application to the web application system
and also notify the contact person below.
