The Department of Physics invites applications for tenure-track faculty positions at the Assistant Professor level. Ranks at Associate Professor or above will also be considered for candidates with exceptional record of research excellence and academic leadership. Applicants must possess a PhD degree in physics or related fields and have evidence of strong research productivity.

We seek strong experimental candidates in soft condensed matter physics (including biophysics) and  hard condensed matter physics (including low dimensional materials, materials with strong electronic correlations, and novel wave functional materials). Candidates with outstanding record in experimental atomic, molecular and optical (AMO) physics are also encouraged to apply.  Coupled with the School of Science’s faculty cluster hire in Data Analytics for Biological and Physical Sciences, we also seek theorists in statistical mechanics and data science.

Appointees are expected to assume teaching responsibilities for undergraduate and graduate courses, and to conduct vigorous research programs. Further information about the Department is available at http://physics.ust.hk

Starting salary will be commensurate with qualifications and experience. Fringe benefits including medical and dental benefits, annual leave and housing will be provided where applicable. Initial appointment will normally be on a three-year contract. A gratuity will be payable upon successful completion of contract.

Application Procedure:

Applicants should submit their curriculum vitae, together with a cover letter, a complete list of publications, a brief research statement and a teaching statement, and three reference letters, via AcademicJobsOnline.Org at (https://academicjobsonline.org/ajo/jobs/16293)

Please quote reference number "PHYS2509" in your application materials.

Screening of applications will begin immediately, and will continue until the position is filled.

We are not accepting applications for this job through AcademicJobsOnline.Org right now. Please see the job description above on how to apply.
