Job description: 
The Tsung-Dao Lee Institute in Shanghai, China invites applications for T. D. Lee Fellow in the areas of exotic quantum states andmaterials, quantum computation,
quantum optics, atom optics and quantum metrology. We welcome highly promised and top-rated applicants in condensed matter physics, atomic-molecular-optical physics, quantum information/computation, or a related field.

T. D. Lee Fellow is a six-year appointment with an annual salary starting from 500K RMB, and an optional tenure-tracked faculty position offered through the co-sponsor Shanghai Jiao Tong University (SJTU). Housing subsidization options are offered for the positions through SJTU.

The Tsung-Dao Lee Institute is a newly established prestigious international research institute in China, supporting world-class fundamental physics research in quantum physics, high energy physics, and astrophysics. English is the working language at the institute.

A minimum of two years of postdoctoral research experience is required. Applicants should submit a CV, a brief research statement, a list of publications and five recommendation letters.

The Tsung-Dao Lee Institute was founded in 2016 in Shanghai, China. It is jointly established by the Ministry of Science and Technology, the Ministry of Education, the Municipal Government of Shanghai, and jointly funded by 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. The TDLI aims to boost researches in basic sciences and interdisciplinary fields via undertaking 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.
