The Particle and Nuclear Division of Tsung-Dao Lee Institute (TDLI) and The Institute of Nuclear and Particle Physics (INPAC) in School of Physics and Astronomy, Shanghai Jiao Tong University (SJTU) jointly have 2 immediate postdoctoral research fellow positions to work on the calorimeter R&D projects (including the Crystal ECAL and Analog HCAL simulation and design, prototyping, beam test, DAQ and electronics, scintillator productions, …) to be deployed at future Dark Photon/Light Dark Matter search experiment at Shanghai HIgh repetitioN rate XFEL and Extreme light facility (SHINE) and future linear/circular colliders.
The initial appointment is 2 years (renewable) with possible promotion to the prestigious “T.D. Lee postdoctoral fellowship”, and a senior project driven long-term research scientist position based on mutual satisfaction. The candidate should have a Ph.D. in experimental particle physics or nuclear physics. The successful candidate is expected to work and base at Shanghai.
We offer an internationally competitive salary and stipends plus additional housing benefits in Shanghai. We will also provide support in funding applications. Prior hardware experience will be advantageous.
Interested candidates should provide a CV with research experiences and publications, a statement of research interests, and at least three support letters.
Application materials and inquiries of the position shall be sent to Prof. Shu Li (firstname.lastname@example.org)
The review of application will begin immediately and last until the position is filled.
For full consideration, applications should be received by Oct. 25, 2021.
TDLI is a newly established prestigious national research institute in China, initiated by Prof. Tsung-Dao Lee (University Professor Emeritus at Columbia Univ., USA; Nobel Prize in Physics 1957, Albert Einstein Award 1957), directly approved by China’s Central Government, co-funded by Ministry of Science and Technology, the Ministry of Education, the Municipal Government of Shanghai and National Science Foundation of China. Shanghai Jiao Tong University is retained and approved by the government to operate the new Institute as its contractor and trustee, supporting world-class fundamental physics research in high energy physics, astrophysics and quantum physics. English is the working language at the institute. TDLI has an international working environment and provides diversified culture experiences. Non-Chinese-speaking candidates are equally highly encouraged to apply.
TDLI aims for establishing a top-notch physics research institute that is similar to the Niels Bohr Institute at Copenhagen and Institute of Advanced Studies at Princeton. The central government has strongly committed to this endeavor. The Institute aims to undertake three basic missions: 1) provides a platform to foster academic training, exchange, and collaborations for worldwide physicists; 2) hosts cutting-edge research programs on most fundamental questions in particle physics, cosmology and quantum physics with potential expansion to include other related areas such as the application of quantum mechanics to bioprocesses; 3) actively engages in general public science education.
