The Chinese University of Hong Kong

Applications are invited for:-

Department of Physics
Assistant Professor(s)

(Ref. 210002MH)

The Department invites applications for tenure-track Assistant Professor positions, which will start from the academic year 2022-2023. The Department anticipates that there will be multiple positions. 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 are welcome to apply, including:

- Biophysics and Soft Matter Physics;
- Complex systems and Fluids;
- Materials Science;
- Atomic, Molecular, and Optical Physics;
- Astrophysics and Cosmology;
- Condensed Matter Physics;
- Quantum Information Science and Technology;
- Particle physics.

Applicants working in the first three directions are preferred. This does not exclude applicants of strong qualifications working in other fields.
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.

Appointments 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 positions 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 applicant's 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
