Two Postdoctoral Openings in Condensed Matter Theory

Shanghai Jiaotong University - Shanghai Center for Complex Physics

Applications are invited for two postdoctoral openings in condensed matter theory in the Shanghai Center for Complex Physics (SCCP)

Appointments at the assistant professor level could be considered for exceptionally qualified candidates.

For any inquiry please contact Prof. Antonio M. García-García

Research Profile:
Candidates with a background in low dimensional superconductivity, mesoscopic physics and holographic dualities are especially encouraged to apply though other profiles, within the remit of theoretical condensed matter physics, will also be considered. 

Application: Applicants should send, in a single PDF file, a resume including list of publications, earliest date of availability, and a brief research statement to Prof. Antonio M. García-García In addition, the candidate should arrange for two or more letters of reference to be sent electronically to the same e-mail address. 

Duration: Two years with the possibility of a two year extension. 

Eligibility: Candidates of all nationalities are welcome to apply. The working language of the Center is English

Additional benefits include commercial health insurance and the possibility, constrained to availability, of university housing below market prices. There are also funds to attend scientific meetings and to invite researchers to SCCP. 

About the center:
Shanghai Center for Complex Physics (SCCP), a unit of the School of Physics and Astronomy at Shanghai Jiao Tong University ( conducts experimental and theoretical research at the interface between traditional condensed matter physics and the newer field of quantum information, including topological quantum computing, unconventional and high-transition temperature superconductors, topological quantum materials and strongly correlated many-electron systems. Professor Tony Leggett, 2003 Nobel Prize laureate, is its founding director and Professor Ying Liu is its executive director. The working language of the Center is English.
