Dear Colleagues,

We will start a new research project
"Elucidation of New Hadrons with a Variety of Flavors (New hadrons)"
supported by Ministry of Education, Culture, Sports, Science and
Technology (MEXT) from April 2010. In order to make significant
achievement in the theoretical research, we will hire several
young researchers of postdocs and/or assistant professors.

This is a large joint project formed by several research groups
in Japan. The candidates are hosted by one of the institutions
as listed below, and expected to work for theoretical hadron physics,
particularly for exotic hadrons with various flavors. We encourage
their considerations of large sets of experimental data taken from
KEK/Belle, J-PARC and LEPS, which are the main research bodies of
this project from the experimental side. Young candidates who have
a strong intention to work with them, or those who have new idea
are also desired.

We encourage applications of strong candidates.

RCNP, Osaka University
