Inquiries of the position shall be sent to Profs. Haijun Yang <>, Jun Guo <>, Liang Li <> and Jianglai Liu <>.

The review of application will begin immediately and last until the position is filled.

INPAC (, established in 2009 by Prof. Xiangdong Ji (APS fellow 2000, Herman Feshbach Prize 2016), has about twenty faculty members working on the frontiers of fundamental science researches in nuclear and particle experiments and theories. TDLI (, initiated by Prof. Tsung-Dao Lee (Nobel Prize in Physics 1957), is a newly established national research institute. The director of the institute is Prof. Frank Wilczek (Nobel Prize in Physics 2004) and the executive director is Prof. Xiangdong Ji. TDLI supports research in high energy physics, astrophysics and quantum physics, and aims for establishing a top-notch physics and astronomy research institute. SJTU is the contractor and trustee of TDLI and is in charge of the operation of TDLI. English is the working language at both institutes and non-Chinese-speaking candidates are welcome to apply.
