1. Postdoc Job information from Fudan University

The Institute of Modern Physics at Fudan University in Shanghai now invites applications for postdoctoral researcher positions starting in fall 2020 or earlier. The positions are for two years, with a possible extension for one additional year.

The local research group at Fudan focuses on experimental nuclear physics study from low energy to intermediate and high energies. Related topics include, but are not limited to, radioactive ion beam physics, R&D of detector and electronics, collective dynamics in large and small colliding systems, QCD phase transition and critical point, chirality, vorticity, polarization effects in Quark-Gluon Plasma. There is also a strong connection with theorists from the same group.

Interested applicants are required to submit a detailed CV, a list of publications, statement of research interests and three letters of recommendation, (or for more details and information about the positions) to:

Dr. Deqing Fang (dqfang@fudan.edu.cn) or

Dr. Qiye Shou (shouqiye@fudan.edu.cn).

Review of applications will start immediately, and will continue until the positions are filled.

Fudan University was founded in 1905, and today is one of China's highest-rated and most dynamic research universities. It has long attracted the best students from throughout China, but its focus is increasingly international. Institute of Modern Physics, Fudan University is located in the main Handan campus, has ~50 employees (including ~40 scientists), and has graduate programs in particle physics and nuclear physics, atomic and molecular physics, and plasma physics. We encourage an open and collaborative research environment, and provide you the resources to pursue your scientific interests.

2. Research positions - LHCb experiment

Job description:

The LHCb group at the South China Normal University (SCNU) is inviting applications for one or two postdoc research associate positions that can open immediately.

The SCNU group joined the LHCb experiment in June 2018, is interested in Heavy Ion physics and Electroweak (EW) physics, and the development and maintenance of the DAQ system and physics analysis algorithms. The group is also planning to participate the LHCb Phase II upgrade.

Successful candidates are expected to work on physics analysis together with one or two services tasks such as preparation of the run 3 data taking and/or the phase II upgrade subject to the candidates' interests and the group needs.


Successful candidates will be based at SCNU in Guangzhou with frequent travels to CERN. Besides the gross salary provided by the university (See the university job post at Nature Careers: https://www.nature.com/naturecareers/employer/12036), a decent travel per-diem will be provided by the team funding for periods staying at CERN.

Successful candidates should have a PhD in Particle Physics or Nuclear Physics and fluent English communication skills, preferably under 35 years old.

Candidates holding a PhD in theoretical Particle Physics or Nuclear Physics are also encouraged to apply.

The positions are opened immediately for an initial period of 2 years, with a possible extension of 1 more year and a possible promotion to a tenure-track level position (please refer to: https://www.nature.com/naturecareers/employer/12036 ). 

Interested candidates should send a full CV (including publication list), a statement of research interests, and arrange 2-3 recommendation letter to be sent to Prof. Hengne Li (Hengne.Li@m.scnu.edu.cn). 

Complete application will be reviewed immediately, job starting date is flexible subject to the discussions with successful candidates.

The application deadline is 31 Dec., 2020, but applications will be considered until the positions are filled.


Letters of Reference should be sent to:


3.  Postdoc Positions - STAR group @Shandong University


The Key Laboratory of Particle Physics and Particle Irradiation (MOE) at Shandong University seeks a postdoctoral research fellow to join our Experimental High Energy Nuclear Physics efforts on the STAR experiment at RHIC.

The STAR group at Shandong University is taking important roles in heavy ion physics analyses, including collective dynamics in large and small systems, jet and energy loss, EM probes, heavy flavor, QCD phase transition and critical point. The team also has pronounced experience on detector R&D.

The successful applicant is expected to help continue SDU’s key role in STAR’s heavy ion program, with the opportunity to work on STAR’s forward upgrade. This postdoc will be based at Shandong University in Qingdao, China with frequent travels to BNL in USA. The appointment is initially for two years with the possibility of renewal based upon satisfactory job performance and continuing availability of funds.

The Post Doctoral Scholar will contribute to papers that will be published in research journals, and travel to scientific workshops and conferences. The postdoc is also expected to begin developing an independent research program on STAR and work with, mentor, and educate graduate and undergraduate students as part of the postdoc's professional development.

Applicants must possess a Ph.D. in experimental nuclear physics or experimental particle physics by the time of appointment. Applicants should provide a CV and a short statement of research interests and experience to zhenyuchen@sdu.edu.cn, as well as arrange for at least three letters of reference to be emailed directly to the same address. Review of applications will begin on 15 Aug 2020 and continue until the position is filled. Applications are still encouraged after this date.
