Faculty Positions at the Institute of Theoretical Physics Chinese Academy of Sciences

The Institute of Theoretical Physics at the Chinese Academy of Sciences (ITP-CAS) (http://english.itp.cas.cn) is calling for applications for faculty positions in 2023. Research areas include but not limited to: 1) Theoretical particle physics and nuclear physics, 2) Quantum field theory and superstring theory, 3) Gravitational theory, astrophysics and cosmology, 4) Statistical physics, theoretical biophysics and bioinformatics, 5) Condensed matter theory, 6) Quantum physics, quantum information and interaction between light and matter, 7) Theory of intense laser matter interactions, and 8) New areas of theoretical physics or related interdisciplinary fields. Excellent young scientists working on theoretical study of intense laser matter interactions and new areas of theoretical physics or related interdisciplinary fields are particularly encouraged to apply. ITP-CAS will provide a competitive salary and good working conditions for successful applicants.

1. Tenure-track associate professors (through Overseas Excellent Young Scientists Fund Program)

The applicant should be under 40 years old and have held full-time research positions in overseas institutions for more than 36 months after receiving his/her Ph.D. degree. When submitting the applications, the applicant should have been working less than one year with a full -time position in the mainland of China or have not taken a full time position in the mainland of China.

The successful applicant should work full-time in the mainland of China more than 3 years.

2. Tenure-track associate professors (through CAS Talents’ Program)

The applicant should be under 40 years old and have a minimum of three years’ research or working experience in an overseas institution after receiving his/her Ph.D. degree.

3. Fixed-term (3 to 5 years) associate professors

The applicant should be under 40 years old and have a minimum of two years’ research experience after receiving his/her Ph.D. degree.

4. Research assistants (through CAS Special Research Assistants’ Program)
