The faculty members and research information can also be found on Candidates are expected to have a Ph.D. in theoretical physics or related areas prior to the time of employment. They should also have an established academic background and provide evidence of future research potential.
The positions are generally made for a term of two years and can be extended for an additional year subject to performance review and funding situation. The starting date of the positions is flexible. The positions offer competitive salary and benefits, including research fundings, housing subsidies and travel expenses. The applicants may also apply for “Boya postdoctoral fellow” in March 2024, which provides even more benefits (see
Peking University Boya Postdoctoral Fellowship Call for Applications 2023).

Interested applicants should provide a cover letter, a Curriculum Vitae, a publication list, a statement of research interests, and arrange at least three reference letters. In the cover letter, please indicate the research area (1-8) and the hosting faculty member. The applicants are encouraged to contact with the faculty members. If there are any questions, please contact Ms. Lv Lv ( or Prof. Yinan Wang  ( ).


The materials and reference letters should be submitted on this page before the deadline (December 15, 2023).
