    Call for Associate Professor (KAGRA)
    November 22, 2022
  • Position: Associate Professor (tenure track, annual salary system),1 person
    KAGRA, the Large-scale Cryogenic Gravitational-wave Telescope, is preparing for international joint observations with LIGO and Virgo. We will continue observations and upgrades of KAGRA in order to contribute to gravitational wave astronomy. Sensitivity is the most effective factor to produce scientific results in international joint observations. It is essential to enhance the sensitivity of KAGRA by promoting the commissioning of KAGRA in collaboration with LIGO and Virgo, while giving KAGRA its unique characteristics as cryogenic mirrors. We are broadly seeking one Associate Professor who will play a central role in these roles and be responsible for generating scientific results from KAGRA. This Associate Professor will also be involved in the management of KAGRA Observatory.
    Application Prerequisites : Applicants shall have a Ph.D.
