The IBS Center for Geometry and Physics (IBS-CGP) invites applications for several senior researcher positions (position ID: SRP).

IBS-CGP is working to bring the world’s leading scientists in mathematics together with young researchers to collaborate on research projects with passion and commitment. To this end, IBS recruits based on scientific excellence and creative ideas, rather than pre-determined goals or demonstrated practical outcomes. IBS-CGP provides an open and autonomous research environment. The existing members of IBS-CGP are working in symplectic geometry, geometric topology, dynamical systems, algebraic geometry, number theory, and mathematical aspects of quantum field and string theory.

The center is located on the campus of Pohang University of Science and Technology (POSTECH) in Pohang, South Korea.

Successful candidates for senior researcher positions will be new or recent Ph.D.’s with outstanding research potential. These non-tenure-track appointments are for two or three years, and the salary range is KRW 58,000,000 – 67,000,000 (approximately USD 48,000 – 55,800). The appointment is one time renewable up to 5 years in total contingent upon the outstanding performance of the researcher.

These are purely research positions and senior researchers will have no teaching duties.

IBS-CGP offers annual research travel expenses in addition to basic research equipment and comprehensive benefits including medical and travel insurance and retirement fund.
