2. Dark Matter Direct Detection and neutrinoless double beta decay (PandaX)

3. Reactor Neutrino Experiment (JUNO)

Faculty members involved are: Profs. Donglian Xu and Jianglai Liu.

Collider Experiment Group:

1. LHC/ATLAS Physics and Detector Upgrade.

2. CEPC R&D.

3. Fundamental Precision Measurements.

4. Light Dark Matter Search Experiment.

5. Advanced Accelerator Study.

Faculty members involved are Profs. Kim Siang Khaw, Shu Li, Kun Liu, Dao Xiang, Haijun Yang.

The initial appointment is for 2 years, starting from the Fall of 2022, with possible renewal for a third year. The TDLI offers a competitive salary (comparable to same-level positions in USA).
