Finding Jobs

At KEK, we conduct research using a device called an “accelerator.” We are an Inter-University Research Institute Corporation that provides domestic and international researchers with a place for shared use of large accelerators that cannot be installed at individual universities.

Here, you will enjoy challenging the unknown, such as phenomena and ideas that no one has ever known before, and the fascination of finding and sharing them widely to expand the boundaries of our knowledge.
