Institute for Advanced Study at Tsinghua University (IASTU) invites applications for postdoctoral positions starting in the Fall of 2024. Highly qualified candidates with interests in AdS/CFT, quantum gravity and quantum information theory, holographic condensed matter systems, quantum chaos and random matrix theory, quantum cosmology and related fields are encouraged to apply.

Current IASTU faculty working in these areas include: Bartlomiej Czech, Yingfei Gu and Zhenbin Yang. The group currently includes three postdocs, with more appointments in the pipeline. Our group collaborates closely with other groups in Beijing that have overlapping interests, including the Yau Mathematical Sciences Center, the Institute for Interdisciplinary Information Sciences, Tsinghua University Physics Department, Peking University, The Kavli Institute for Theoretical Sciences and The Chinese Academy of Sciences--all within easy walking or biking distance from IASTU.

IASTU is an elite research institute at one of China's leading universities, dedicated to theoretical studies of fundamental science. Members of the Institute conduct world class research in the AdS/CFT correspondence, condensed matter theory, cold atom physics, astrophysics and other disciplines.

Applications will be considered for regular postdoctoral fellowships and for C.N. Yang Junior Fellow positions. Regular postdoctoral fellows are appointed for two-year terms with a possible extension of one more year while C.N. Yang Junior Fellows are appointed for three-year terms. C.N. Yang Fellowships are reserved for candidates of exceptional ability and independence; the number of concurrent C.N. Yang fellowships is strictly limited to three and usually one is chosen each academic year.

During 2024/2025, compensation for postdoctoral fellows will range from RMB 180,000 to RMB 300,000, depending on the type of fellowship (regular, C.N. Yang, or others) and qualifications. These amounts may be supplemented from other sources, at a level commensurate with the candidates' qualifications and experience. In the last two years, all postdocs have received compensation no less than RMB 300,000 per annum. Overall, the packages are generous and internationally competitive. Both types of appointments include ample funding for academic travel. Tsinghua University will provide each fellow (regular and C.N. Yang Junior Fellow) a rent-subsidized on-campus apartment.

A candidate must have a Ph.D. prior to the start of the positions. Interested candidates should submit an electronic application here at www.academicjobsonline.org. Complete applications will include a cover letter (optional), a CV with a publication list, a research statement and three letters of reference. Applications submitted by December 20 will receive full consideration.
