Deadline:  2013-02-25

Location:  Shanghai, China

The Department of Physics at Fudan University (Shanghai, China) have faculty and postdoc position openings in the areas of theoretical physics, including quantum field/string theory, particle theory/phenomenology/astrophysics and cosmology. The faculty positions can be either tenure-tracked at the level of associate professor or with tenure at the level of full professor, depending on the candidate experience and research record. Applicants should have a Ph.D. degree in physics, with a strong background and an excellent track record in research. The successful candidates are expected to spearhead world-class research programs, teach classes at both undergraduate and graduate level, and contribute to the development of first-class scientific capabilities in the Department of Physics. Annual salary for a regular faculty is in the range 150-350K RMB (US $23,400-54,700), plus housing compensation and other benefits. New faculty members will be provided with competitive startup resource. We also sponsor qualified candidates to apply for the national Thousand Young Talents Program, which would provide additional start-up research funds and benefits. For a qualified postdoc, a competitive package may be provided.

Current research areas at Fudan include quantum field/gravity/string theory (Yong-Shi Wu, Leonardo Modesto), and relativistic astrophysics (Cosimo Bambi). The new faculty will have an independent research group, but they are expected to join the effort of founding a new theoretical physics center at Fudan, led by Prof. Yong-Shi Wu, who holds a joint position as Distinguished Professor at the University of Utah in the United States and as a Specially Appointed Professor of Physics at Fudan.
Applicants should send their CV, statement of research and teaching interests and a publication list to Ms. Jin Miao, Department of Physics, Fudan University, Shanghai 200433, China, or to jinmiao[AT]fudan.edu.cn and cc to shenj5494[AT]fudan.edu.cn. Please arrange also three or more recommendation letters to be sent separately to the above email addresses.
