KMTNet (Korea Microlensing Telescope Network) is three identical 1.6m telescope systems with 2 deg X 2 deg FOV CCDs in CTIO, SAAO, and SSO, which ensures 24-hour coverage of the southern hemisphere. KMTNet ed official observations in 2015 October and we secured 17% time of all three telescopes for five years for our KMTNet Supernova Project (PI=Professor Dae-Sik Moon, University of Toronto). We are routinely observing external galaxies mainly for investigating supernovae and transient objects and we are accumulating huge amount of data on galaxies which make it possible to do researches on various objects like supernovae, variable stars/objects, galaxies, AGN, etc. For example, by repeated observations, we obtain very deep exposures with multiple filters for certain galaxies.   The ing date for the successful candidate is 1st of September 2016, which is negotiable. The positions are initially for two years, with the possibility of a third year depending on the research performance, mutual agreement or funding situation.

The positions are available as early as September 2016 and the ing date is negotiable. The period will be two (2) years with the possibility of a third year extension depending on research performance and funding situation.     KASI is one of the major partners in the GMT consortium and the Optical Astronomical Technology Group is involved in various projects to develop the GMT telescope and its first generation instruments such as the GMT Fast-steering Secondary Mirror (FSM), the G-CLEF spectrograph, and the GMTNIRS spectrograph. The group is collaborating with NOAO, SAO, the Carnegie observatories, and UT Austin for those projects. The mission of the group also includes development of technology for the telescopes and instruments of the local KASI observatories.      For one of the positions, we are particularly interested in applicants to work on the design and engineering of optomechanical and/or control systems for the GMT FSM and/or the GMT instruments.     For the other position, we are interested in applicants to work on optical metrology such as the CGH testing to examine the optical components of the GMT FSM and the GMT instruments including the 1-m aspherical off-axis mirror of the FSM.  ※ Enquiries may be addressed to: Dr. Sungho Lee (leesh@kasi.re.kr) (6) Computational Astrophysics    As of January 2016, KASI has launched Computational Astrophysics Program with a plan to establish Computational Astrophysics Group under the Center for Theoretical Astronomy. The scientific scopes of the group include studies of computation-intensive problems (gas dynamics, MHD, PIC, radiation transfer, N-body, data processing, and etc.) for various astrophysical objects, ranging from planets, stars, and galaxies, to cosmology, as well as set-ups of common computational tools (various codes, visualization, computing/data center, etc.).    Outstanding candidates in all fields of computational astrophysics are encouraged to apply for the position. The position is offered for two years, with a possibility of extending to third year. Research funds for travel and etc will be provided. The successful candidate is expected to spend a half of his/her time for researches with members of Computational Astrophysics Group and the other half for independent researches of his/her interests. In addition, he/she will help institute Computational Astrophysics Group.    The expected ing date is September 1, 2016, but negotiable. Applicants must have a PhD in astronomy or a related field at the time of appointment. For further inquiries, contact ryu@kasi.re.kr (DongsuRyu, Director of Center for Theoretical Astronomy).
