South China Normal University, Institute of Quantum Matter

The Institute of Quantum Matter at South China Normal University (SCNU) and the high energy nuclear theory group in Department of physics and Astronomy at University of California Los Angeles (UCLA) has up to two “joint” postdoctoral positions. The postdocs are expected to work closely with Prof. Hongxi Xing at SCNU and Prof. Zhongbo Kang at UCLA. We provide internationally competitive salary for these postdoctoral fellows.   

The position is for a duration of two years, with a possible extension for a third year, and a high potential to be converted to a faculty member at SCNU for outstanding performance. The start date is provisionally Fall 2023, with flexibility to start earlier. Applicants are expected to have Ph.D. in theoretical nuclear or particle physics by the beginning of the postdoctoral appointment. The research interests of the group include but are not limited to hadron physics (QCD structure of the nucleon and spin physics), QCD collider physics (jet and jet substructure), QCD factorization and high order perturbative QCD calculations.   

Interested applicants should submit: 1. a curriculum vitae including a list of publications; 2. at least three reference letters; 3. a statement of research interest.   

Review of applications will begin on December 15, 2022 and continue until the positions are filled.
