The Korea Astronomy and Space Science Institute (KASI) is a government-funded research institute located in Daejeon, Republic of Korea. We conduct front-line research in various fields of astronomy, astrophysics and space sciences, develop astronomical instruments and operate facilities in Korea and overseas. For further details, please visit www.kasi.re.kr/eng/index.
  

We are currently looking for creative and outstanding researchers for Junior Research Leader (JRL) positions. The position was created to model after the Junior Research Group (JRG) Leader position of MPG (Max Planck Society) in Germany and APCTP (Asia Pacific Center for Theoretical Physics) in Korea. The position is initially offered for 3 years with a possibility of continuation based on performance. The salary will be competitive, corresponding to that of an exceptional Assistant Professor in Korean universities.
     

 Interested persons should send the followings to hradmin@kasi.re.kr: the forms (Application Form for Junior Research Leader, CV, Research Plan) downloadable at https://www.kasi.re.kr/eng/post/eng_jobopening and three or more letters of reference. Applicants must have a PhD in astronomy or a related field at the time of appointment. Applications received by April 30, 2016 will be given due consideration, but will also continue to be accepted until the position is filled. The expected ing date is July 1, 2016, which is negotiable.


Fields :
1. Computational Astrophysics
2. All Areas of Astronomy, Astrophysics and Space Sciences


1. Computational Astrophysics
As of January 2016, the 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. Funds for research expenses of about US $ 20,000 per year as well as those to hire a postdoctoral researcher will be provided. Additional research funds for further postdoctoral researchers, students, and etc may be available through the KASI research programs. The successful candidate will carry on independent research of his/her interests. In addition, he/she will help and play a role in instituting Computational Astrophysics Group.
   For further inquiries, please contact ryu@kasi.re.kr (Dongsu Ryu, Director of Center for Theoretical Astronomy). Applications for this position will be also considered for regular postdoctoral positions for Computational Astrophysics Group.


2. All Areas of Astronomy, Astrophysics and Space Sciences
The KASI invites applications for JRL Positions in optical astronomy, radio astronomy, space sciences, theoretical astronomy/astrophysics. The successful candidates are expected to conduct research independently or in collaboration with the KASI faculty. They will have full access to all the resources and facilities of the KASI. The KASI’s resources and facilities include the Gemini and the MMT through K-GMT Science Program (~15 nights per semester), 1.8-m Bohyunsan optical telescope, 1.0-m Mt. Lemmon optical telescope, IGRINS, KVN, KaVA, TRAO 14-m telescope, ALMA through East Asia Region, and the JCMT through East Asia Observatory. The salary and research supports comparable to those for the JRL of computational astrophysics will be offered,
