Job Announcement Text: 

The Tsung-Dao Lee Institute (TDLI) in Shanghai, China (http://tdli.sjtu.edu.cn) invites applications for several tenure-track (“Fellows”) or tenured (“Senior Fellows” and “TDL professors”) faculty positions in astrophysics. We are seeking candidates in all areas of astrophysics, from exoplanets, gravitational waves to particle astrophysics and cosmology, and from theoretical and observational astronomy to instrumental/laboratory astrophysics.

 

The Fellows (equivalent to Assistant Professor) and Senior Fellows/Professors (equivalent to Associate or Full Professors) at TDLI are expected to carry out independent forefront research and supervise students (both Ph.D. and undergraduate students). They will have a reduced teaching load compared to typical university faculty. The positions are open to researchers of any nationality, and will provide internationally competitive salary, housing subsidy, and start-up grant.

 

TDLI, 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 aims to become a top-notch physics and astronomy research institute in the world. Shanghai Jiao Tong University (SJTU) is the contractor and trustee of TDLI and is in charge of the operation of TDLI. TDLI has an internationalized environment with English as its working language.

 

TDLI has an active visitor program, and organizes many topical workshops and conferences each year to create a scientifically stimulating environment. Its astronomy division works closely with the astronomy department at SJTU (http://astro.sjtu.edu.cn/en/), which currently has an active extragalactic/cosmology research program and is eager to expand in other areas. The TDLI astronomy division also works with its particle physics division, on particle astrophysics, dark matter search and other frontiers in fundamental physics.

 

Applicants should submit their applications at https://academicjobsonline.org/ajo/jobs/19586. They should upload a cover letter, curriculum vitae (including a publication list), a research and teaching statement (four-page maximum). At least three letters should be submitted online at the same website. For other inquires please send an email to [email protected].

 

For full consideration, all application material should be received before November 15, 2021. The search will remain open until the positions are filled.

Included Benefits: 

The position comprises comprehensive university benefit packages for faculty, including generous housing subsidies, medical insurance and retirement benefits.
