Tenure-track and tenured faculty positions in astrophysics The Tsinghua Center for Astrophysics (THCA) in the Department of Physics at Tsinghua University invites applications for tenure-track or tenured faculty positions in observational, experimental, and theoretical/computational astrophysics.
Tsinghua University, one of the oldest and most prestigious universities in China, is undergoing a major expansion in its astrophysics program. It is envisioned that THCA will add about 10 new faculty members by 2020. The areas of growth include galaxy formation and evolution, cosmology, high energy astrophysics, exoplanets, time domain astrophysics, and gravitational waves. Successful candidates are expected to initiate vigorous research programs of their own.
The current research at THCA spans a wide range of topics, including cosmic reionization and 21cm cosmology, dark matter and dark energy, galaxy formation and evolution, circumgalactic and intergalactic media, active galactic nuclei, supernovae, and X-ray binaries. In addition, the faculty members have been developing instrumentation for X-ray satellite missions, and are also involved in several operating or planned ground-based experiments. Description of individual research programs can be found at the THCA web site (http://astro.tsinghua.edu.cn).
