*** the listing date or deadline for this position has passed and new applications are no longer accepted. ***

The Particle and Nuclear Division of the Tsung-Dao Lee Institute (TDLI) at the Shanghai Jiao Tong University [http://tdli.sjtu.edu.cn/EN/] invites applications for several TDLI fellow positions (tenure-track associate professors at the School of Physics and Astronomy of SJTU) in experimental and theoretical particle and nuclear physics and cosmology. Highly qualified candidates will also be considered for tenured positions.

TDLI fellows are expected to carry out independent research projects, supervise students, and develop courses in line with our emphasis on particle and cosmology within the major in physics program. The positions are open to researchers of any nationality, with highly competitive salary, housing subsidy, and start-up grant.

The division has three research groups focusing on some of the fundamental problems in particle and nuclear physics and cosmology. We are conducting a broad-area search for candidates with a strong research record in areas including, not limited to, the following:

Underground Experimental Group: 1. Dark Matter Direct Detection. 2. Neutrinoless Double Beta Decay. 3. Reactor and Cosmic Neutrino Experiments. Faculty members involved are: Profs. Jianglai Liu,Donglian Xu, Xin Xiang and Hualin Mei.

Collider Experiment Group: 1. LHC/ATLAS Physics and Detector Upgrade. 2. CEPC R&D. 3. Fundamental Precision Measurements. 4. Light Dark Matter Search Experiment. 5. Advanced Accelerator Study. Faculty members involved are: Profs. Kim Siang Khaw, Shu Li, Kun Liu, Dao Xiang, Haijun Yang.

Theory group: current research areas include physics beyond the Standard Model, neutrino and flavor physics theory and phenomenology, early universe quantum field theory and applications to baryogenesis and dark matter, quantum gravity, quantum chromodynamics and lattice gauge theory, effective field theory, and nuclear astrophysics. Faculty members involved are: Profs. Jason Evans, Shao-Feng Ge, Sophia Han, Hong-Jian He, Xiao-Gang He, Yuichiro Nakai, Michael Ramsey-Musolf, Evangelos Sfakianakis, Luca Visinelli, Frank Wilczek and Tsutomu Yanagida.

Applications should be submitted through Academic Jobs Online system and must include a cover letter, curriculum vitae including information on date of birth and date receiving the PhD degree, research statement, publication list and at least five reference letters. The deadline is Dec.10,2023.

TDLI has an international environment with English as its working language, and invites candidates of all nationalities. The TDLI seeks to promote equal opportunity and diversity in physics. Members of under-represented groups in physics are particularly encouraged to apply. For inquiries about the position and TDLI, please contact Ms. Zi Yang (hep.tdli@sjtu.edu.cn) and Prof. Xiaogang He (hexg@sjtu.edu.cn) for theory group, Prof. Jianglai Liu (jianglai.liu@sjtu.edu.cn) for underground experiment group and Prof. Haijun Yang (haijun.yang@sjtu.edu.cn) for collider experiment group. You can also approach any of the faculty members for inquiries.
