Position Description:    

*** this position has been closed. ***

The Center for Gravitation and Cosmology of Yangzhou University, China, is seeking qualified and talented postdoctoral researchers in the field of gravitation (general relativity or modified theories of gravity) and/or its applications in astrophysics, cosmology, or high energy physics such as holography. Candidates with background in other closely related fields, such as quantum gravity (broadly defined), theoretical and observational cosmology, black hole physics, gravitational wave physics will also be considered. Applicants should have (or expected to obtain by starting date) a Ph.D. in the relevant fields to receive full considerations. We offer a 2+1 year contract starting from September 2019.

Successful applicants will have the opportunity to collaborate with members of the center, but they are otherwise free to pursue their own research interest. There is no teaching duty.

The Center for Gravitation and Cosmology (CGC) is a young research center founded in 2017 at Yangzhou University. Yangzhou is a scenic city with rich history in the Jiangsu Province of China, primarily known for its former major role in the salt trade. It is the Southern capital of China under Emperor Yang of Sui (r. 604-617). It is believed that Marco Polo had served as a governer in Yangzhou around 1282-1287. CGC is an initiative of the BRICS-Association of Gravity and Cosmology (BRICS-AGAC), with support from the BRICS countries (Brazil, Russia, India, China and South Africa).

Interested candidates should submit the following documents in a SINGLE PDF file to Prof. Yen Chin Ong at ycong[AT]yzu.edu.cn :

(1) A full curriculum vitae. (2) A copy of PhD certificate (3) A publication list, with five most significant publications clearly highlighted. (4) A brief description of research interests, including future plans, not exceeding 2 pages.

In addition, 2-3 recommendation letters should be arranged to be sent to the same E-mail address. Completed applications should be received no later than November 30, 2018.
