The Institute for Fusion Theory and Simulation (IFTS), Zhejiang University (ZJU) has become an important research center of plasma physics in China since its founding in 2006. We are seeking qualified candidates for tenure-track faculty positions at the level of assistant professor in the areas of magnetic fusion and high energy density physics. IFTS-ZJU welcomes applicants from all over the world. Candidates should hold a PhD in Physics or a closely related area and should have at least two years of postdoc or equivalent experience in plasma theory/simulation or experiment. The successful applicants are expected to contribute to the education and guidance of undergraduate and graduate students, and develop and maintain active, externally funded research programs. Zhejiang University offers internationally competitive salary, housing accommodation and other benefits, as well as start-up fund commensurate with his/her qualification. Applicants are invited to send inquiries, curriculum vitae, publication list and names of three references to firstname.lastname@example.org.
The Institute for Fusion Theory and Simulation (IFTS) was established in 2006 with Prof. Liu Chen as its first director. Since then the institute has grown into a major plasma theory and simulation center in China with 9 faculty members, a number of postdoctoral researchers and over 30 graduate students. Prof. Guoyong Fu is the current director.
The mission of IFTS are two folds: (1) Carry out world class research in plasma physics; (2) Train next generation of leaders and scientists for plasma physics research and fusion energy development. The research area of IFTS include magnetic fusion plasma physics, space plasma physics as well as high energy density physics. For more information please see our website at http://ifts.zju.edu.cn/
