Distinguished Junior Fellowship at the South Bay Interdisciplinary Science Center, Songshan Lake Materials Laboratory

The South Bay Interdisciplinary Science Center (SBISC) is one of the four core divisions of the Songshan Lake Materials Laboratory (SLAB), situated in Dongguan, the Pearl River Delta. Centered around materials research, SBISC supports basic and applied research in matter and energy, life sciences, advanced manufacturing, and artificial intelligence. Through various in-house and collaborative programs, SBISC strives to become an academic leader in cutting-edge interdisciplinary research.

SBISC is currently conducting an international talent search under its Distinguished Junior Fellowship Program. We look for young scientists with a PhD degree in relevant fields to carry out independent and original research at the Center. The Fellowship offers a CNY 600,000 annual salary, housing, and expenses related to academic exchange and activities. The funding duration is 3 years but is extendable to 5 years based upon performance review and mutual agreement.

Interested applicants should submit a cover letter, resume and three letters of recommendation, along with a detailed research plan for the next 3 years. Collaboration with in-house and visiting scientists at SBISC/SLAB is encouraged but not required. For research that requires lab facilities and equipment, a separate resource requirement plan should accompany the application. Available SLAB platform resources can be found at http://www.sslab.org.cn/core/platform.

Applications and enquiries should be directed to hr@sslab.org.cn.

SLAB has additional full-time openings in all ranks with generous compensations and startup funds in all areas of materials research. Interested applicants are encouraged to explore listings at http://slab.hotjob.cn/.


Located in Dongguan, one of the main cities in the Guangdong-Hong Kong-Macao Greater Bay Area, Songshan Lake Materials Laboratory (SLAB) started construction on December 22, 2017 and completed registration in April, 2018. As one of the first Guangdong provincial laboratories, SLAB consists of four core sections: the Frontier Research Center, the Public Technology Platform and Large-scale Scientific Facilities, the Model Factory for Innovation, and the South Bay Interdisciplinary Science Center, which will form the entire chain of "frontier basic research → applied basic research → industrial technology research → industrial transformation". It is expected to become an internationally recognized southern base for new materials research and development, an important component of China’s materials research, and a new window of interdisciplinary cooperation in the Guangdong-Hong Kong-Macao Greater Bay Area.
