Fudan-FAU Joint Postdoctoral Position in Quantum Gravity
We would like to announce a joint postdoctoral researcher position at Fudan University in Shanghai, China and at Florida Atlantic University (FAU) in Boca Raton, USA.
The appointment is a full time position and is made for up to 2 years. The appointment will begin in the Fall 2018 or possible earlier. The deadline of the application is December 15, 2017.
The postdoc will be hosted by Prof. Yidun Wan at Fudan University and by Prof. Muxin Han at FAU. The selected candidate is expected to spend his research stay in both institutions (approximately 1 year at FAU and 1 year at Fudan), and work with Prof. Muxin Han and Prof. Yidun Wan and other members in their research groups.
This position is open to the candidates with background in a wide area of Quantum Gravity, including e.g. Loop Quantum Gravity, Spin Foam Models, Group Field Theory, String Theory, AdS/CFT, and other Quantum Gravity approaches. We are also interested in the candidates with background in Topological Quantum Field Theory.
Prof. Yidun Wan’s research group at Fudan University currently consists of 1 postdoctoral researcher (Dr. Yuting Hu) and several PhD students. The group is working on topics including Topological orders, Quantum Gravity, Emergent Gravity, and Quantum Simulation. The group is also collaborating with other Fudan faculties Prof. Yongshi Wu, Prof. Ling-Yan Hung, etc, and their research groups.
Prof. Muxin Han’s research group at FAU currently consists of 1 postdoctoral researcher (Dr. Antoina Zipfel) and several PhD students. The group’s research interests includes Loop Quantum Gravity, Spin Foam Models, Tensor Network approach in the AdS/CFT correspondence, and Topological Quantum Field Theory. The group is closely interacting with other FAU gravity faculties Prof. Warner Miller, Prof. Jonathan Engle, Prof. Chris Beetle, Prof. Wolfgang Tichy, and their research groups.
The salary of the position is in the range of 2500-3000 USD per month.
Interested candidates should send (1) a cover letter, (2) a CV with a list of publications, and (3) a statement of research interests to the email address: ydwan[AT]fudan.edu.cn. The applicants should arrange for 3 reference letters to be sent to the same address. All material should arrive before December 15, 2017.
