The Center for High Energy Physics (CHEP) at Kyungpook National University, Daegu, Korea has a total of three openings for two types (Research Professor and Postdoctoral Research Associate) of positions in the research areas of experimental high-energy physics or experimental astroparticle physics. . The exact number of jobs in each type of position will be determined by the selection committee after reviewing all applications.

CHEP is involved in various high-energy and astroparticle physics experiments, including collider experiments (CMS and Belle), underground experiments (COSINE and AMoRE) and space experiments (ISS-CREAM). CHEP was also one of the pioneering institutes in the development of scintillators and the precision characterization of photosensors for applications in particle and radiation physics as well as various
interdisciplinary applications.

The start date for the positions is September 1, 2022. The term of employment for the positions is initially two years, and can be extended up to a maximum of two additional years based on mutual satisfaction. The annual salaries for the research professor and postdoctoral research associate positions are 45 million and 36 million Korean won, respectively.
