    Call for a Postdoctoral fellow
    October 21, 2021
  • Position: Postdoctoral fellow, 1 person
    In the Telescope Array (TA) Experiment in Utah, USA, an additional TALE hybrid instrument was installed to lower the energy threshold of the observation cosmic rays to be observed to below 1017 electron volts, and its operation has been ongoing since 2018. We are currently constructing the TALE infill surface detector (SD) array, which will consist of additional SDs to lower the energy threshold by one order of magnitude. We are looking for a postdoctoral fellow who will be required to conduct research in ultra-high energy cosmic ray physics in the following roles:
    - construction and operation of the TALE infill SD array,
    - operation of the TALE and related experiment,
    - data analysis of the TALE infill SD array and related experiments.
    Application Prerequisites : Applicants should have a Ph.D. in a related field by the time of employment.
