The School of Physics at Huazhong University of Science and Technology is among the fastest-developing Physics Faculty in the world. Started in 1983 as a small department, the Faculty contains now 120 tenured and tenure-track members; many of them have honorable records: 3 are members of the National Academy of Science (2 adjunct), 3 are Yangtze-Professors, 5 won the NSF Distinguished Young Scholarship, 9 were selected into the National 1000-Young-Talents Program…… The Faculty has more than 10 high-level research groups, including the “NSF Renovation Group for Gravitational Theory and Experiment” and the “MOE Renovation Group for Ultrafast Optics”. The MOE ranking of HUST physics rose from 19th in 2007 to be 12th in 2012. And in the past 3 years, the Faculty continued be in a rapidly uprising stage: obtaining about 30 new NSF grants each year, with over 100 research projects ongoing via a total funding over 100 million RMB, publishing over 500 SCI papers with more and more in prestigious journals like Phys. Rev. Lett, Science and Nature serials.
The international impact of physics at HUST is quickly increasing. HUST is the unique university in the world which has three affiliated National Laboratories related to Physics: The Wuhan National Laboratory of Optoelectronics, National Pulsed High Magnetic Field Center, and the National Precision Gravitational Measurement Facility under construction led by the School of Physics, with a total budget of ~1 billion RMB for the coming five years. They strongly support the research of AMO, condensed matter physics, precision measurement, fundamental theoretical physics and test of fundamental physical laws, and geophysics, etc.
To build a top physics faculty, we invite outstanding physicists to join:
Fields of Interest: Precision Measurement, AMO, Condensed Matter Physics, Fundamental Theoretical Physics, Geophysics and Biophysics. The field is open for top physicist who can establish a new and world-class research group at HUST.
1) Chair professors, tenured full and associate professors, tenure-track assistant professors, and postdocs in the above fields;
2) Director of the Institute of Physics in High Magnetic Field;
3) Directors of several research groups at National Precision Gravitational Measurement Facility (see http://ggg.hust.edu.cn)
Qualification: PhD in physics or related fields, (strong potential for postdoc-position applicants to achieve) research accomplishments with international recognition, a clear research plan with potential to lead a research field, and enthusiasm in education.
To apply: please submit a cover letter (indicating the intended position and expected starting date, etc.), a detailed CV with description of research accomplishments, a research statement with estimated prospect; and request three reference letters sent directly to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Application will be accepted all over the year until positions filled.
Benefits and Support: Salary 300-500K RMB for faculty positions, 180-200K RMB for postdocs, sufficient and negotiable start-up grant and relocation fee, on-campus school for kids, and vacant positions for distinguished applicants to build a group.
