Deadline:  2023-12-01

Location:  Yangzhou, China

The Center for Gravitation and Cosmology of Yangzhou University, China, is seeking qualified and talented postdoctoral researchers in the field of gravitation (general relativity or modified theories of gravity) with focus on black hole physics (broadly defined), gravitational wave, and analog gravity systems. Special considerations will be given to candidates with strong background in gravitational wave and analog black holes. For the latter, candidates with experimental knowledge in laser and optics are especially welcomed to apply. Strong candidates with background in other closely related fields, such as holography, quantum gravity, cosmology, will also be considered.

Applicants should have (or expected to obtain by starting date) a Ph.D. in the relevant fields to receive full considerations. We offer a 2-year contract starting from September 2024. Earlier starting date can be negotiated on a case by case basis.

Successful applicants are expected to collaborate with members of the center, but they are otherwise also free to pursue their own research interest. There is no teaching duty.

Interested candidates should submit the following documents in a SINGLE PDF file to Dr. Hao Xu at haoxu[AT] :
(1) A full curriculum vitae.
(2) A copy of PhD certificate.
(3) A full publication list, with five most significant publications clearly highlighted.
(4) A brief description of research interests, including future plans, not exceeding 1 page.

In addition, 2-3 recommendation letters should be arranged to be sent to the same E-mail address. Completed applications (including recommendation letters) should be received no later than December 1, 2023.
