The National Astronomical Observatory of Japan (NAOJ) invites applications for a full professor at the Division of Science, who conducts pioneering studies by bringing new ideas and key innovations to astronomy. The successful candidate is expected to demonstrate high-impact research with broad and deep knowledge of astronomical phenomena: for instance, a study of groundbreaking theory that can open up an opportunity for planning out the next-generation telescope(s)/instrument(s); an epoch-making discovery based on observations that can build up the standard model or exceed its prediction; and so on. As one of the lead scientists at the Division of Science, the successful candidate is also expected to explore the new possibilities of astronomy, to take the initiative in promoting scientific activities that impact relevant research fields, and to broaden the horizons of research fields in the Division of Science. The responsibilities of this position require continuously demonstrating leadership and outstanding performance in research activities and also promoting collaborations among NAOJ scientists as well as collaborations among international and Japanese communities to stimulate productivity of science by making the best use of NAOJ’s facilities. Education of young scientists, including supervising students in the PhD’s program, is also required as part of the responsibility.
