Position Description:    

Tenure-track Faculty Positions in Experimental and Theoretical Physics

The Department of Physics invites applications for several tenure-track faculty positions at the Assistant Professor level. An applicant must possess a PhD degree in physics or related field and provide evidence of strong research productivity.  Appointment at Associate Professor level or above will also be considered for candidates with exceptional records of research excellence and academic leadership. 

We seek experimental candidates in quantum matter and quantum information, including quantum and low-dimensional materials, materials with strong electronic correlations, cold atoms, quantum optics, and quantum enabled technologies. We also seek theoretical candidates with expertise in condensed matter theory physics, quantum science (preferably with a focus on atomic, molecular, or optical methods), statistical physics, neural networks, and data analytics.

Appointees are expected to assume teaching responsibilities for undergraduate and graduate courses, and to conduct vigorous research programs. Further information about the Department is available at http://physics.ust.hk.

Starting salary will be highly competitive and commensurate with qualifications and experience. Fringe benefits including medical and dental benefits, annual leave and housing benefits will be provided where applicable. The initial appointment prior to tenure will normally be on three-year contract terms. A gratuity will be payable upon successful completion of a contract.

Application Procedure
