      • UW–Madison:
      • For inquires about other postdoc positions please contact: note: applicants should have a PhD awarded within 3 years (maximum allowable is 5 years)
      • University of Alberta, Canada:
      • Postdoctoral Fellowships in Astroparticle Physics (IceCube). The fellowships will be based at the University of Alberta and may potentially involve travel to the South Pole. Experience in the field of neutrino astroparticle physics and/or dark matter searches or related experiments is an asset. The successful candidate will be expected to analyze IceCube data and lead the development of the planned detector upgrades including new optical modules. Candidates should have a recent PhD in experimental astroparticle physics, nuclear or particle physics, or in a closely related field. The original appointment will be for two years, up to three years in special circumstances, subject to funding. The stipend will be commensurate with qualifications and experience.

        The review of applications will begin on September 1st, 2017 and will continue until the opportunities are filled.
      • SungKyunKwan University, South Korea:
      • Postdoctoral Position IceCube/Hyper-Kamiokande. The research focus of the group is on neutrino astroparticle physics, searches for physics beyond the standard model/indirect dark matter searches, and neutrino geophysics. Experimental efforts focus on the IceCube neutrino telescope, IceCube-Gen2, Hyper-Kamiokande, and the sterile neutrino search with JSNS2. The group is leading the development of a novel camera system for IceCube upgrades to study ice properties. Further hardware efforts include optical sensor module R&D and calibration systems for neutrino detectors.

        For full consideration please submit your documents by August 25th, 2017.
