Applications are invited for:-

Department of Physics
Assistant Professor(s)

(Ref. 190001IC)

The Department invites applications for tenure-track Assistant Professorship(s), which will start from the academic year 2020-2021. The Department anticipates that there will be multiple posts. Appointment at the level of Assistant Professor is expected but a more senior appointment will be considered for candidates with exceptional qualifications.
Applicants in areas in physics currently being pursued in the department, particularly in experimental studies, are welcome to apply, including:

- Astrophysics and Cosmology;
- Atomic, Molecular, and Optical Physics;
- Biophysics and Soft Matter Physics;
- Complex Systems and Fluids;
- Condensed Matter Physics;
- Materials Science;
- Quantum Information Science and Technology; and
- Particle Physics.
Applicants should (i) have a relevant PhD degree with postdoctoral research experience; (ii) demonstrate a track record of research accomplishments, potential for establishing a significant externally funded research programme; and (iii) have a strong interest in teaching at undergraduate and postgraduate levels.

Appointment(s) will normally be made on contract basis for up to three years initially, which, subject to mutual agreement, may lead to longer-term appointment or substantiation later (substantive appointment may be considered during the second three-year contract).

Applications will be accepted until the post(s) is/are filled.

Application Procedure
Applicants should submit an online application and attach a full resume, research plan, teaching statement, copies of academic credentials, a publication list and/or abstracts of selected published papers (if any), together with names, addresses and fax numbers/e-mail addresses of three referees to whom the applicants' consent has been given for their providing references (unless otherwise specified).

The University only accepts and considers applications submitted online for the post(s) above. For more information and to apply online, please visit
