Faculty Positions

Assistant Professor-FRIB/NSCL Faculty

Michigan State University (MSU) is seeking outstanding candidates with expertise in reaction theory for a junior rank faculty position in theoretical nuclear science at the Facility for Rare Isotope Beams (FRIB). FRIB theory faculty members typically have joint appointments in the Department of Physics and Astronomy (PA), where they teach and supervise graduate students.

The successful candidate is expected to establish and sustain a sponsored research program in reaction theory relevant to the research conducted at FRIB, make scholarly contributions to their discipline, be an effective instructor and mentor to a diverse cohort of students at the undergraduate and graduate levels, and engage in institutional and public service.

FRIB is a world-class laboratory for nuclear science, funded by the U.S. Department of Energy Office of Science with user operations beginning in 2022. It is home to forefront experimental and theoretical research programs in nuclear physics, nuclear astrophysics, nuclear chemistry and accelerator science, with about 120 Ph.D. students in these areas. FRIB will vastly expand the range of rare isotope beams available to the research community and offer tremendous potential for scientific discovery. The new faculty member will be centrally involved in this discovery.

CRC Faculty Position in Subatomic Physics Phenomenology at the University of Regina. [Application closing date: January 23, 2022]

The Department of Physics and Faculty of Science at the University of Regina invite applications for a tenure-track faculty position at the rank of Assistant Professor who would be nominated for a Tier 2 Canada Research Chair (CRC) in subatomic physics phenomenology. The position is not contingent on a successful CRC application. The anticipated start date is July 1, 2022.

The Department of Physics is a leader in subatomic physics research with established programs in neutrino physics (T2K and Hyper-K), beyond the Standard Model phenomenology (MOEDAL, CERN), hadron structure (Jefferson Lab and the Electron Ion Collider), nuclear structure and astrophysics (TRIUMF), neutrinoless double beta decay (LEGEND), and applied nuclear science (Fedoruk Centre). We are seeking a subatomic physics phenomenologist to join our dynamic and collaborative department and develop a vigorous externally funded research program that is complementary to our existing research activities, will strengthen our role in national and in international projects, will open new avenues for future collaboration and will provide essential theoretical support for our experimental faculty.

Postdoc and Fellow Positions

Postdoctoral fellow position at the Department of Physics, Tongji University, Shanghai. [Application end date February 15th, 2022]

A postdoctoral fellow position is available at the Department of Physics, Tongji University, Shanghai. Tongji is one of the longest-standing, most selective, and most prestigious universities in China under the Project 985. It is a Chinese Ministry of Education Class A Double First Class University. According to the 2022 QS World University Rankings, Tongji University ranked 8th nationally. Applicants must have a Ph.D. in physics (or anticipate having a Ph.D. in hand by the end of 2022). The research interests of the group cover a broad range of topics. These include nuclear reactions near the neutron- and proton-drip lines with particular emphasis on halo nuclei and direct reactions. Research topics in nuclear structure include alpha decay, alpha clustering, halo nuclei, and superheavy nuclei. We attack these problems using a variety of forefront techniques including effective field theory, relativistic mean-field theory, CDCC method and Faddeev techniques. Preference will be given to expertise in nuclear reaction. More information about the group can be found at Thus applicants should have a strong research record and display significant initiative to complement their research skills. The appointment will initially be for one year. Renewal for up to two more years is highly probable, but is contingent on funding and job performance. The annual gross salary is around 260K RMB (about ~41K USD).

If you are interested in the position, please send your application (letter of motivation, curriculum vitae, publication list, 2 letters of recommendation) no later than the 15th of February 2022 via email to Dr. Jin Lei (, indicating also your earliest possible entry date.
