Message from Hitoshi Yamamoto:
As the LHC collects data at an excellent rate, there is wide
expectation that we may very soon see hints of the Higgs particle as
well as new physics at the Terascale. Meanwhile, the International
Linear Collider (ILC) will have a much greater sensitivity for the
physics within its energy reach and is actively being developed as
the next accelerator at the energy frontier. Achieving the physics
goals at the ILC calls for a highly granular detector with
unprecedented resolutions, which requires concentrated R&D efforts.
We have been awarded the JSPS Grant-in-Aid "A global research and
development program of a state-of-the-art detector system for ILC"
lasting five years, enabling us to extend our research toward the
realization of the ILC. We offer a wide range of research
opportunities, including physics analysis at the ILC, detector design
and optimization, hardware R&D such as the silicon vertex detector,
TPC tracking detector, and calorimeters with silicon and scintillator
readouts, detector integration, and site studies.
The success of this project depends on highly motivated, young
researchers. We are looking to fill 7 or 8 positions (postdoctoral
research associate or project assistant professor) whose salary will
be covered by the grant. The position announcement are posted
individually by the following institutions: Saga University, Kyushu
University, Shinshu University, the University of Tokyo, High Energy
Accelerator Research Organization (KEK), and Tohoku University.
