Recruitment of School of Physics in Sun Yat-sen University

 

Sun Yat-sen University (SYSU), located in Guangzhou in Southern China, is one of the mostly acclaimed top 10 universities in Mainland China. It was ranked at the 8th position by the U.S. News and the Times Higher Education in 2017. The physics program of SYSU was established at the very beginning with the establishment of SYSU in 1924 by Dr. Sun Yat-sen and was restructured into the School of Physics in 2015. We are located in the historical south campus of SYSU in Guangzhou besides the beautiful Pearl River. Enjoying the long history of the SYSU physics program since its establishment, the school has strong teams in theoretical physics, condensed matter physics, optics, and high energy physics. We have also recently set up research groups working in soft condensed matter and biophysics, energy physics, and a few other cross discipline fields. Thanks to the fast development of SYSU and the school with the strong supports in higher education from the central government, we are actively recruiting high level talents in all the disciplines all over the world. We have open positions in the following disciplines for talents at different stages of their careers. Our school will provide internationally competitive startups, salaries and relocation fees. We welcome all applicants who want to further their careers at SYSU!

 

I Recruiting disciplines

1 Condensed matter physics: Low-dimensional and surface physics, multiferroic physics, topological materials, quantum materials, neutron scattering physics, theoretical condensed matter physics, etc. Experts in angle-resolved photoemission spectroscopy, transport measurements under extreme conditions, neutron scattering, nuclear magnetic resonance, and muon spin spectroscopy are preferred.

2 Theoretical physics: Quantum many-body physics (quantum many-particle entanglement, correlated electron systems, cold atom physics, topological quantum theory, etc.), statistical physics, computational physics, particle physics and field theory, quantum information and foundation of quantum mechanics, mathematical physics and other related fields.  

3 Optics: Quantum optics, topological photonics, micro-nano photonics, nonlinear optics, biophotonics, attosecond ultrafast optics, light-matter interaction, and interdisciplines related to optics.

4 High energy physics: both phenomenology and experiment. In phenomenology, we are searching for successful candidates in both collider and non-collider based fields; In experiment, we are also searching for successful candidates in all fields, especially the ones with strong hardware experiences.

5 Soft matter and biophysics: Physics of biomolecules and cell, neuroscience and brain, biomedical instruments, soft condensed matter, etc.

6 Energy physics: Energy materials for rechargeable batteries and catalysis; Basic scientific problems during the energy transport and conversion process; Structural fundamentals upon ion storage and transport, Solid state ionics; Physical mechanisms for thermoelectricity and piezoelectricity, and so on.
