Position Description:    

We invite application for one or two joint postdoctoral appointments. The successful candidate will carry out theoretical study of many-body systems with a focus on cold atomic gases. Examples research topics include strongly correlated atomic gases, superfluids, dipolar gases, and topological phases of matter. The candidate is expected to have a strong background in many-body physics, familiar with either analytical or numerical techniques. Research experience in many-body physics and/or quantum gases is preferred.

This joint position will be mainly based at Xi'an Jiaotong University in China. The candidate will be invited to visit George Mason University (GMU) for 6-8 months within the initial appointment. A competitive annual salary commensurate with experience and traveling stipend will be offered. Additional stipends from GMU will be provided to compensate the local expenses during the visits. The starting date can be as early as Fall 2017. The initial appointment will be two years, and renewable afterward subject to funding availability and mutual agreement.

Applicants should submit a CV, a list of publications, a statement of research interest, and have three letters of reference directly sent, all by email to Prof. Bo Liu (Xi'an Jiaotong University, or Prof. Erhai Zhao (George Mason University, Informal inquiries are also welcome. Application review will start immediately. The position will remain open until filled. Additional information about our research is available at and
