Nanjing University

Postdoc and research scientist positions at International Center for Isotope Effects Research in Nanjing University

International Center for Isotope Effects Research (ICIER) is a cross-discipline and cross-college research center in Nanjing University (NJU). ICIER focuses on frontier researches that explore high dimensional isotope signatures, e.g. triple oxygen and quadruple sulfur, clumped, site-specific, and bonded isotopes, and their applications to diverse science problems. ICIER is equipped with state-of-the-art mass spectrometers and high-performance computing clusters for that focus. The Center will expand to about 20 in the next 5 years. More information about ICIER can be found at


We are now recruiting postdocs and research scientists to join us. Once in these positions, you are still eligible to compete globally for Center’s tenure-track or tenured faculty lines.


Current projects include (with no particular order):

Modern- and paleo-atmosphere chemistry

Chemical reaction network and kinetics

Interfacial (e.g. mineral growth and dissolution; evaporation) and enzymatic kinetics

Methane, sulfur, and nitrogen biogeochemistry

Numerical modeling associated with C-O-S-H-N or water cycles in deep Earth history

Mantle geochemistry and planetary processes

Molecular dynamic simulations, machine learning, and DFT calculations

Development of high-resolution mass spectrometry


Please feel free to contact us to discuss potential projects listed or not listed above.
