Job description: 
The T. D. Lee Institute in Shanghai, China invites applications for T. D. Lee junior research fellow and postdoctoral research fellow positions in the areas of experimental and theoretical particle physics. We welcome highly promised and top-rated applicants who have obtained a Ph.D. degree or who are expecting one prior to starting the position, in nuclear physics, particle physics, or a related field. For junior research follow, a minimum of two years of postdoctoral research experience required, the initial appointment is for 5 years with an annual salary around 500k RMB. For postdoctoral research follow, the initial appointment is for 2 years with possible renewal for a third year and an annual salary around 300k RMB. We subsidize housing options through the co-sponsor Shanghai Jiao Tong University.

The appointee can choose to work on the following areas: theoretical particle physics, collider physics (eg. ATLAS, BES3, CEPC R&D), the PandaX xenon-based dark matter experiment, the PandaX-III high pressure gas 136Xe neutrinoless double-beta decay experiment, and the JUNO reactor neutrino experiment. Prior hardware and analysis experience with rare-event searches, noble liquid/gas detectors, or liquid scintillator detectors will be advantageous.


The T. D. Lee Institute is a newly established prestigious national research institute in China, supporting world-class fundamental physics research in high energy physics, astrophysics and quantum physics. English is the working language at the institute.


Applicants should submit a CV, a brief research statement, and a list of publications to Dr. Sheng Li at lisheng@sjtu.edu.cn. Three letters of recommendation should be forwarded to the same address.
