The Tsung-Dao Lee Institute of Shanghai Jiao Tong University is searching for postdoctoral scholars to work on particle astrophysics and multi-messenger astronomy. We are seeking highly qualified individuals with interest and experience in astrophysics and particle physics, especially those with expertise in detection and data analysis of gamma rays, cosmic rays, and neutrinos. The successful applicant will collaborate with Prof. Hao Zhou on gamma-ray data analysis, Galactic/extragalactic astrophysics, and developments of next-generation experiments. 

Tsung-Dao Lee Institute (TDLI) in Shanghai, China ( http://tdli.sjtu.edu.cn ), initiated by Prof. Tsung-Dao Lee (Nobel Prize in Physics 1957), is a newly established national research institute and the current director is Prof. Frank Wilczek (Nobel Prize in Physics 2004). TDLI supports research in high-energy physics, astrophysics and quantum physics, and has an internationalized environment with English as its working language. The TDLI astrophysics division works closely with other divisions of TDLI as well as the astronomy department at Shanghai Jiao Tong University ( http://astro.sjtu.edu.cn/en/ ). 

Prof. Zhou's primary research area is experimental particle astrophysics and Galactic gamma-ray astrophysics . The group plays important roles in HAWC ( http://hawc-observatory.org ) and LHAASO ( http://english.ihep.cas.cn/lhaaso ) and is also involved in the developments of next-generation astro-particle experiments such as GRAND ( https://grand.cnrs.fr ) and SWGO( http://www.swgo.org ). The successful applicant will have the opportunity to analyze gamma-ray data from HAWC and/or LHAASO, study gamma-ray sources such as pulsar wind nebulae, supernova remnants, microquasars, Fermi bubbles, active galactic nuclei, and gamma-ray bursts, perform multi-wavelength and multi-messenger analyses, and develop hardware and software for future astro-particle experiments. 

Applicants must have a Ph.D. degree in astronomy or physics completed before the starting date. Experience in data analysis and computer programming in astrophysics or particle physics is expected. Applications by researcher with experience in gamma-ray, cosmic-ray and/or neutrino detection techniques or analysis/interpretation of particle astrophysics data are particularly encouraged. 

Applications will be reviewed as they arrive and will be accepted until the position is filled. The anticipated starting date of the appointment is March 2021, but can be negotiated. Interested candidates should provide a curriculum vitae (including a list of publication) and a research statement, and arrange for three letters of recommendation to be sent to Prof. Hao Zhou ( hao_zhou@sjtu.edu.cn ). Any other inquires can be sent to the same email address.
