Positions at Shanghai Center for Complex Physics (SCCP), School of Physics and Astronomy, Shanghai Jiao Tong University (SJTU), Shanghai, China.
SCCP at SJTU (http://sccp.physics.sjtu.edu.cn) with Prof. Tony Leggett of University of Illinois, a part-time faculty member of SJTU, as its director, announces three faculty (tenured or tenure-track) and four postdoctoral openings in theoretical and experimental condensed matter physics. The rank, salary, start-up, and housing supplement will be commensurate with experience and competitive with those offered by other leading universities in mainland China. Candidates of all nationalities are welcome to apply. Those appointed who do not speak Chinese will be able to carry out their teaching and other official duties in English. Several non-Chinese faculty members are currently working at SJTU School of Physics and Astronomy.
Tenured Associate and Full Professor Positions
A successful candidate should hold a Ph.D. degree and have held a faculty or equivalent position at a rank of tenure-track (or equivalent) or higher with a demonstrated track record of excellence in research, leadership and mentoring. Salary, start-up funds, housing allowance, and other provided benefits are competitive with those offered by other leading universities in mainland China.
Tenure-Track Assistant Professor Positions
A successful candidate should have a Ph.D. degree, postdoctoral experience, and demonstrated ability of performing independent research. Salary, start-up funds, housing allowance, and other provided benefits are competitive with those of other leading universities in mainland China. The tenure track typically lasts for 6 years with the tenure home at SJTU School of Physics and Astronomy. The tenure evaluation begins at the beginning of the 6th year of employment with a process and performance expectation similar to those in a US university.
A successful candidate is expected to hold a PhD degree with demonstrated research accomplishments. Appointments will be made with a 2-year contract, renewable for another 2 years. Annual salary is 220,000 RMB /year (approx. 30,000 EUR/year 34,500 USD/year). Commercial health insurance and university housing below market prices (subject to availability) will also be provided. There are also funds to attend scientific meetings and to invite researchers to SCCP to facilitate collaborative work.
Application and deadline
Interested candidates are encouraged to initiate the application process by sending a CV (including a full list of publications) to firstname.lastname@example.org before April 15, 2018.
For informal inquiries or any further information about tenured or tenured track positions, please contact Prof. Ying Liu at email@example.com. For inquiries regarding postdoctoral positions, please contact Prof. Antonio M. García-García at firstname.lastname@example.org. In addition, Prof. Ying Liu is scheduled to attend the 2018 APS March meeting and will be happy to meet any interested candidate. Please contact him in advance to arrange an individual meeting.
