Recruitment information
Positions are open for highly motivated graduates. Candidates interested in the field of particle cosmology/astrophysics are welcome to contact me. Background in physics and/or astronomy is preferable. Applications to the Graduate Program must be done through the qualification of the School of Physical Sciences, USTC. The particle cosmology group at USTC invites applications for postdoctoral positions. The successful applicant will join an exciting research group under the supervision of Dr. Yi-Fu Cai as well as extensively interacts with other research groups in the field of large scale structure, galaxies, astro-experiments and observational cosmology. We also have strong ties to the Interdisciplinary Center for Theoretical Study in the field of theoretical physics. More information can be found on my webpage.
