The International Center for Quantum Materials (ICQM, http://icqm.pku.edu.cn/), Peking University, China, invites applications for tenured/tenure-track faculty positions and postdoctoral positions in the fields of experimental and theoretical condensed matter physics; atomic, molecular, and optical (AMO) physics; solid-state based quantum information science (QIS); material physics and related areas. Established in 2010, ICQM has attracted both internationally-renowned scientists and excellent young researchers from diverse areas of condensed matter, material physics, AMO, and QIS, and enabled them to work together productively. During the next phase of enhancement, the center has a number of faculty lines (tenured and tenure-track faculty members) and around 10 postdoctoral positions open for applications.
Positions and Qualifications
We are seeking exceptional candidates for all levels of faculty positions, including distinguished chair professors, tenured full/associate professors, as well as tenure-track assistant professors. Candidates should have a Ph. D in a relevant discipline, an outstanding record of research accomplishments, and the capability to lead an independent research group. The position offered will be commensurate with individual’s work experience and research track-record. In particular, candidates applying for position of distinguished chair are expected to be internationally influential in a relevant discipline.
We are also seeking qualified candidates for postdoctoral positions. Candidates should have a Ph. D in a relevant discipline or expect a Ph. D within one year, with a substantive record of research accomplishments, and the ability to work collaboratively with faculty members in the center.
