Postdoctoral Positions in Theoretical Quantum Physics

Wilczek Quantum Center, Shanghai Jiao Tong University


We invite applications for several postdoctoral positions in broadly defined theoretical quantum physics, including condensed matter theory, cold atom physics, statistical physics, and quantum optics/information. We will offer an internationally competitive salary as well as travel support and a research budget.  The appointment will be two years, with one more year extension subject to mutual agreement.

Some of these positions are dedicated to collaboration with Prof. Jianwei Pan’s experimental groups in cold atom physics. Research experiences in related fields will be a big plus. Applicants are also encouraged to contact members of search committee directly:
