Postdoctoral Fellow Positions at the IASTU

The Institute for Advanced Study at Tsinghua University (IASTU) is a research institute dedicated to theoretical studies of fundamental science. At present, research in physics at the IASTU is mainly focused on theoretical condensed matter, cold atom physics and the AdS/CFT correspondence. We sincerely invite applications for postdoctoral (regular or C. N. Yang junior) fellow positions in physics. Successful candidates are expected to undertake independent research or collaborate with other researchers at the IASTU. Postdoctoral fellows at the IASTU also have opportunities to visit other world-leading research institutes for international collaborations during their appointment term.
 
Regular postdoctoral Fellows are appointed to two years terms with possible extension of one more year. Outstanding applicants will be considered for Chen Ning Yang Junior Fellows at the IASTU who are expected to possess exceptional independent research ability and originality. C. N. Yang Junior Fellows are appointed to three years terms. The number of C. N. Yang Junior Fellows at any one time is normally limited to three and usually one is chosen each academic year. For both types of fellows, reappointment as Associate Member at the IASTU may be considered.
 
During 2018/2019, the yearly stipend for regular postdoctoral fellows at the IASTU will be no less than 170,000RMB. The yearly stipend for C. N. Yang Junior Fellows will be no less than 230,000RMB. Tsinghua University will provide each fellow (regular and C. N. Yang junior) a rent-subsidized on-campus apartment for living.
 
A candidate must have a Ph.D. prior to the start of the positions. Interested candidates are encouraged and invited to submit electronic application through https://academicjobsonline.org/ajo/jobs/10448 . Applications should include a CV with publication list, research statement or a summary of research interests, and contact details (including name, affiliation, and email address) of at least two references. To ensure full considerations, the application should be received by Jan. 31st, 2018 (review of applications normally starts earlier).
