Project Assistant Professor in the Field of Experimental Physics of Radiation Imaging-I

The Kavli IPMU invites applicantions for a fixed-term project assistant professor position in the field of experimental physics of radiation imaging. The successful candidate will have experiencef developing signal processing circuits for molecular imaging systems such as Positron Emission Tomography (PET) or Single Photon Emission Computed Tomography (SPECT), in particular, of design and fabrication of dedicated LSIs for analog-digital-mixed signal processing. Experience in data analysis and 3D image reconstruction in molecular imaging is also desirable. A Ph.D. in physics or engineering is required.

The appointment will be made as soon as a decision isreached, and last through to the end of March, 2021.

The application should include a CV, research statement, publication list, and at least 6 letters of recommendation. The complete application should be uploaded here no later than January 9, 2018.

The Kavli Institute for the Physics and Mathematics of the Universe (Kavli IPMU), the University of Tokyo Institutes for Advanced Study, has the ambitious goal to discover the fundamental laws of nature and to understand the universe from the synergistic perspectives of mathematics, theoretical and experimental physics, astronomy, and statistics. It is an international research institute with English as its official language, established in October 2007. More than a half of its full­-time scientific members come from outside Japan.

We seek to build a diverse, highly interactive membership. Female and international candidates are strongly encouraged to apply.
