Global Post-Doctoral Researcher of UESTC- Theoretical and Computational Physics of Nanomaterials and Nanostructures; Focus on Photonics and Energy.

The University of Electronic Science and Technology of China ( Chengdu, Sichuan, China ) seek candidates for postdoctoral research positions. These positions are for candidates to conduct theoretical and computational studies of nanostructures and nanocrystals, with a focus on photonics and energy, in an international research group led by Prof. Alexander Govorov. Research will be conducted in two places at two institutions, at the University of Electronic Science and Technology of China ( UESTC ) in Chengdu, China and at Ohio University in the US. An incoming postdoctoral researcher can make his/her choice of workplace in either of these places. Simultaneously, these positions involve a strong cooperation with the Institute of Fundamental and Frontier Sciences ( IFFS ) in Chengdu, led by Prof. Zhiming Wang ( ).

The research group led by Prof. Alexander Govorov is working on optical and photochemical properties of nanostructures and nanomaterials. The research topics currently pursued in the group include plasmonic nanostructures, hot electrons, plasmonic photothermal phenomena, quantum effects in plasmonic and excitonic systems, hybrid nanoscale systems, bio-assemblies, chiral bio-plasmonics, surface photochemistry, nanoscale systems for energy conversion, etc. There will be opportunities to interact with experimental groups worldwide and participate in multidisciplinary projects. Further information about the research group and relevant contact details are available at:

The annual salary is in the range of ¥ 200,000-480,000, depending on applicant's records. Additional bonuses for specific achievement will be provided.

Candidates should be highly motivated and have a strong background in theoretical condensed-matter physics, computational physics and the physics of nanostructures. A commitment to working effectively with students, faculty and staff from diverse backgrounds is required. The position has an initial duration of two years, but may be extended yearly up to three years, depending on performance and funding. To apply for this position, send an English e-mail firstly to Prof. Alexander Govorov with a full Curriculum Vitae and a cover letter.( Govorov email:govorov( at ) )

Prof. Alexander Govorov has ever been a Distinguished Professor of Physics at Ohio University in the U.S, now he is a full-time Professor of Physics at IFFS, UESTC. He is also a Chang Jiang Chair Professor at UESTC in Chengdu, China, a Fellow of the American Physical Society and a recipient of several international awards including the Walton Visitor Award ( Ireland ), the 1000-Talant Award ( Sichuan, China ), the Jacques-Beaulieu Excellence Research Chair Award ( Canada ), etc.

Prof. Zhiming Wang is a Professor of National 1000-Talents Program, the Director of the IFFS at UESTC in Chengdu,and Journal Editor-in-Chief of Nanoscale Research Letters.
