Sun Yat-sen University (SYSU) was founded in 1924 and currently hosts five campuses: three in the cosmopolitan city of Guangzhou, one in Shenzhen, and one in Zhuhai, a beautiful seashore town next to Macau. SYSU has developed into a comprehensive university covering a wide range of disciplines including arts, science, and technology. At the heart of the Pearl River region, it aims to become a leading educational and academic institution in southern China.
The School of Physics and Astronomy is situated in the Zhuhai campus. It is committed to cutting-edge research of the highest quality in astrophysics, cosmology, gravitation, quantum physics, space science, and theoretical physics. In particular, it plays the leading role in the commissioning of TianQin: a planned space-borne gravitational wave detector. It also aims to produce undergraduates and graduates with a strong foundation in physics and astrophysics.
The Astrophysics group currently has interests in cosmology, large-scale structures, dark matter and dark energy, gravitational wave astrophysics, computational and numerical astrophysics, high energy astrophysics, as well as stars and planets; while applicants in all fields in astrophysics and cosmology are equally welcome.
Faculty positions at all levels (i.e., professors, associate professors) are available. Salaries for outstanding candidates will be very competitive, while various salary packages and benefits are available. Details in Chinese language can be found on our webpages (http://spa.sysu.edu.cn/cn/content/413). Applicants should send a curriculum vitae with a list of publications and major research achievements to Dr. Pak-Hin Tam (email@example.com).
Applicants should have an excellent track record of publications in leading scientific journals. Demonstrated success in obtaining research grants are preferred but not necessary. Successful candidates will be expected to contribute to academic strategic planning, management and administration as appropriate, and support the development and delivery of undergraduate and graduate teaching.
