Research Associates, Postdoc Fellowships: SYSU 1425 views

Research associates and Postdoc Fellowships at the Sun Yat-sen University (SYSU).

Sun Yat-sen University (SYSU) was founded in 1924 and currently hosts four campuses: three in the cosmopolitan city of Guangzhou, and one in Zhuhai, a beautiful seashore town next to Macau. SYSU has developed into a comprehensive university covering a wide range of disciplines including arts, science, and technology.

The School

The School of Physics and Astronomy is situated in the Zhuhai campus. It is committed to cutting-edge research of the highest quality in astrophysics, cosmology, gravitation, quantum physics, space science, and theoretical physics. In particular, it plays the leading role in the commissioning of TianQin: a space-borne gravitational wave detector. It also aims to produce undergraduates and graduates with a strong foundation in physics and astrophysics. The Astrophysics group currently has interests in cosmology, large-scale structures, gravitational wave astrophysics, and high energy astrophysics. The group has recently installed a cluster dedicated to numerical simulations. Group members are involved in projects including TianQin, and science involving CAS South America Center for Astronomy (CASSACA), Fermi, H.E.S.S.-II, and SDSS-IV.
