The NAOJ ALMA Project invites applications for a Project Research Staff (postdoctoral researcher) for ALMA Joint Scientific Research Program to conduct the research project “Study of dust-obscured activities in galaxies and their evolution” using ALMA data (including archival data). The successful candidate will spend 100% of the time for this project in collaboration with Professor Kotaro Kohno at the University of Tokyo. The successful candidate is required (1) to publish one first author paper per year, and (2) to submit one ALMA proposal per year. The successful candidate may supervise students for the purpose of carrying out this project.
The application deadline is February 5, 2021, 15:00 (JST)
Applicants must have a Doctoral degree or equivalent in a relevant field. The successful candidate will be employed by NAOJ, and will be stationed at the University of Tokyo. In case the PI of the project (Prof. Kotaro Kohno) moves to another university or institute, the successful candidate is expected to accompany the PI. However, if such an arrangement is deemed difficult by the new university/institute, the successful candidate will be relocated to NAOJ in Mitaka and continue the proposed research project.
The term is until 31 March 2022. For a researcher who has been employed by NINS (National Institutes of Natural Sciences) after April 1, 2013, their term will be set so that the total employment period from April 1, 2013 will be less than 10 years. Any researcher who has been employed as a NAOJ Project Research Fellow for a total of five or more years is not eligible to apply for this position. The starting date is negotiable, but as soon as possible after appointment.
