The University of Science and Technology of China is among the top-ranked research universities in China and the only one with supports from both the Chinese Academy of Sciences and the Chinese Ministry of Education.

Applicants should have a PhD in Astronomy, Physics, or a related field, and a strong record of achievement in astrophysical research, and a commitment to excellence in undergraduate and graduate education. Salary and benefit will be commensurate with qualifications. The start date can be as early as September 2014.
