Associate Professor Department of Earth and Space Sciences
Yufeng Lin is an associate professor in the Department of Earth and Space Sciences at SUSTech. He obtained his Bachelor's degree in Geophysics from the Wuhan University in 2007, and his Master's degree from Peking University in 2010. He then moved to the Institute of Geophysics at ETH Zurich, Switzerland, for his PhD, and completed in March 2015. Prior to joining SUSTech in September 2018, he was a Postdoctoral Fellow in the Department of Applied Mathematics and Theoretical Physics (DAMTP) at the University of Cambridge, UK. Dr Lin's research interests are planetary dynamos, fluid dynamics of planetary interiors and tidal interactions in exoplanetary systems.

2 Postdoctoral Positions in Geophysical and Astrophysical Fluid Dynamics at SUSTech, Shenzhen, China
The Department of Earth and Space Sciences at Southern University of Science and Technology (SUSTech) invites applications for 2 postdoctoral positions in geophysical and astrophysical fluid dynamics associated with the research group of Prof. Yufeng LIN. The successful candidates are expected to work on one of following research topics: (1) numerical simulations of planetary dynamos, (2) tidal interactions in exoplanetary systems, (3) convection in rotating stars and planets, but they are encouraged to develop their own research projects.
The appointments can begin as early as possible and will be for 2 years initially, with the possibility of extensions. Postdoctoral researchers can be promoted to research assistant professors after 2 years based on performances.
The starting annual salary of postdoctoral fellow at SUSTech will be 330,000 RMB (~50,000 USD), including subsidies of Guangdong province and Shenzhen city. Excellent candidates can apply for the SUSTech President postdoctoral fellowship with annual salary up to 500,000 RMB (~77,000 USD).
Applicants should have earned a PhD in geophysics, astronomy/astrophysics, fluid dynamics or a related field at the time of appointment. Candidates with good skills in computer programming and high performance computation are preferred. Applications are open and equal to candidates with any nationalities.
Applicants should submit a single PDF file that includes a statement of research achievements and research plans, a curriculum vitae with publication list and contact information of three referees. Applications should be sent to Prof. Yufeng LIN via email: email@example.com and will be considered till the posts are filled. Please do not hesitate to contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org for any inquiries.
