Introduction of recruitment platform
2020 X-lab is an innovative international research platform initiated by Shanghai Institute of Microsystem and Information Chinese Academy of Sciences, focusing on fundamental scientific research. The platform is dedicated to promoting the frontier basic research of the Institute and providing independent and robust resources and an outstanding intellectual environment for young investigators.
Focusing on innovation and the future development, the laboratory’s mission is to cultivate young researchers and fertilize innovative technologies. With the spirit of fair, independent and innovation, we welcome and encourage outstanding young researchers with professional knowledge and great aspirations to join us.
Salary will be competitive and commensurate with your talents (annual salary of 400,000~600,000 RMB Yuan). For each research group, 3-5 million RMB Yuan of start-up funds and continuous and stable research funding support would be provided annually. The laboratory will provide ample development space. Futhermore, corresponding scientific research teams consisting of young researchers in relevant scientific research fields, would be provided by the institute in order to help YIs form research groups.
The main research areas of 2020 X-lab include:
1) Silicon-based integrated circuit materials, including but not limited to silicon-based two-dimensional materials, heterogeneous integrated materials, integrated circuit material genome, silicon-based optoelectronic integration, high-end analog integrated circuits and high-reliability extreme microelectronics research, etc；
2) Superconducting electronic technology and application, including but not limited to topological materials, superconducting materials, low-dimensional materials and devices, etc；
3) Intelligent sensing technology and application, including but not limited to integrated biosemiconductor, synthetic bioelectronics, organoid chips, human-computer interaction and brain-computer fusion, DNA sequencing, storage and computing, etc；
4) Other transformative technologies, including high-risk and high-yield original frontier basic technologies, communication technologies, computing, design, simulation and other soft science technologies that we may urgently need in the future.
2020 X-lab sincerely invites outstanding young researchers in the above research fields to apply for young investigator positions:
Successful applicants should hold doctorates in relevant fields, and have high-quality of achievements (e.g. publications), excellent scientific literacy and outstanding scientific vision in the above fields. In addition to professional capabilities, we also value applicants’ strong interest and research spirit in their professional fields, as well as good teamwork ability. This call for applications is particularly targeted at young scientific researchers. Thus, in principle, applicants should not exceed 31 years of age (except for those who are extraordinarily outstanding, this limit can be extended to 34).
Interested applicants should submit an application package to: [email protected], with the theme “Applying for the 2020 X-lab Position: Young Researcher”. The application package should be compiled in a single PDF file, which should include a complete curriculum vitae (CV), a research statement describing research interests and goals (2 pages limit), a complete publication list, a copy of 3-5 representative scientific papers as well as the names and contact information of three referees (recommendations are expected).
