The Division of Science was established in April 2019 as a new division of NAOJ. It aims to develop new fields of growth in natural sciences for further advancement of astronomy by leveraging strategies. We invite applications for a project research staff (postdoc) who will conduct research on stellar evolution and their consequence in the early universe mainly with Dr. Takashi Moriya, Dr. Masami Ouchi, and Dr. Tomoya Takiwaki at Division of Science. A successful candidate is expected to work on stellar evolution with a focus on low-metallicity multiple systems and quantify their effects on highly ionized elements observed at high redshifts, reionization, formation of double compact binary systems, and supernovae in the early universe. The successful candidate is expected to work together with theorists and observers at Division of Science by modeling stellar evolution and comparing the models with major observational results.
The successful candidate is expected to start the job on 1 April 2021 or as early as possible after 1 April 2021. The term of employment will be three years after the appointment starts.
