Chinese Academy of Sciences (CAS) is the national leading research institution which brings together scientists and engineers from China and around the world to address today’s scientific and technological challenges. Institute of Mechanics is the national research centre focusing on multidisciplinary research areas underpinned by mechanics, e.g., multiscale mechanics, gas dynamics, aerodynamics, microgravity science and its applications, oceanic engineering, environment, energy, transportation, advanced manufacturing, biomechanics, and bioengineering. It has two state key laboratories in the areas of nonlinear mechanics, and high temperature gas dynamics.

CAS Postdoctoral Fellowships

The prestigious CAS Fellowships are designed to expedite the career development of promising talents who have passion in fundamental research and technological development. The appointed fellows will conduct their research in the State Key Laboratory of High-temperature Gas Dynamics (LHD), contributing to the intellectual wealth and collegiate environment of the Institute. The applicants are expected to have strong track records in one of the following areas: rarefied gas dynamics, aerodynamics, computational mechanics/materials, and high-performance scientific computing. 

Main Responsibilities

The successful candidates will perform and deliver fundamental and applied research that complements and integrates with other appropriate research activities in LHD and the Institute. The fellows will be expected to:

  • conduct research of high quality within the area of high-Mach flow and its interaction with surface materials. LHD aims to build upon its internationally excellent position in this domain.
  • demonstrate research of at least nationally excellent quality, and deliver significant publishing activity in quality peer-reviewed research journals.
  • engage with and contribute to the development of postgraduate students.
  • participate in collaborative research projects within the Institute, in China and around the world, with academic researchers in the field. 

Requirements

  • PhD in physics, engineering, applied mathematics, mechanics, or any related subject.
  • Proven ability to conduct collaborative research with academia and/or industry.
  • A number of high-quality peer-reviewed journal publications.
  • Research expertise in kinetic theory and methods, molecular dynamics, peridynamics, direct simulation of Monte Carlo, computational mechanics/materials, or high-performance scientific computing. 

The CAS fellows will be eligible to apply for a range of funding schemes available in CAS and the Institute. After 2-3 years, the fellows will be considered for permanent posts in the Institute and other talent schemes. 

More experienced candidates are also welcome to apply for Associate and Full Professorships.

In addition to the basic annual salary, the Institute provides various benefits including pension, medical insurance, housing allowance. If you want to know more about the CAS Fellowships and other talent schemes, please contact Prof Yonghao Zhang (email: yonghao.zhang@imech.ac.cn).
