There are one National Key Lab(Crystal Material Lab) and two Shandong Province Key Labs(High-Energy Physics Lab, Low-Dimension Material Lab) in Shandong University, which can support the post-doctor program in physics. 35 faculties, 21 professors and 11 assistant professor, undertake researching work in these areas. Among them, six young professor's age is under forty. There are total about 17 sets of advanced instruments (The price is above 100,000 Yuan each), including the 1.7 MV tandem ion accelerator. 174 kinds of specialized periodical in Chinese or in English, Japanese and Rrssian,totally 25,000 volumes, as well as 23,000 books in the Library are provided for the researchers.
As the national major subject, the Condensed Matter Physics of the University is one of the first subjects which were authorized by the Degree Office of the State Council to award the doctor degree.Professor Jiang Min- Hua, the member of Academy of Science of China, is the famous scientist in condensed matter physics and material science. He is lso one of the head in the field of functional crystal material, Having a good reputation in the academic field in the Nation and abroad. Besides, there are other well-known doctor advisors: Prof.Mei Liang-Mo, Prof.Wang ke-Ming, Prof.Zhong Wei-Lie, Prof.Chen Huan-Chu, Prof.Liu Yi-Hua, Prof.Shao Zong-Shu, Prof.Zhang Pei- Lin, Prof.Ma Hong-Lei, Prof.Tan Chun-Yu and Prof.Xie Shi-Jie.
The research and graduate programs in particle physics in Shandong University began in the 50's, which is one of the earliest programs in universities of the Nation. This subject obtained the authorization of the Degree Office of the State Council in 1981 to sanction the doctor and master degree.In the High-Energy Physics Lab there are 4 doctor advisor, Prof.Wang Cheng- Rui,Prof.He Mao, Prof.Xie Qu-Bing, Prof.Zhang Nai-Jian.
Relating to the post-doctor program are inorganic nonmetal material and quantum chemistry subjects. Relating units include Physics Department, Crystal Institute and Photoelectricity Institute. There are Tandem Ion Accelerator, X- ray diffractometer and other advanced instrument for the preparation and characterization of materials. Since 1990, Much progress has been made and great success has been achieved by the researchers both in condensed matter physics and particle physics. 28 researching items of the Mational and Local level were undertaken and finished during the past 7 years, of which 22 items were the National level, including the National Climbing Programs such as "Study on the structure, character,molecular devising and preparation of photoelectric functional materials" and "Nanometer material sicence", the National Natural Science Fund Programs (Giant Programs) such as "Study on the new-type film materials", the National Natural Science Fund Programs (Key Programs) such as "Study on the transfer of spin-polarized electrons in all- metals" and a series of 863 Programs". Since 1990, about 500 academic papers have been issued in SCI, EI and other important journals. 8 works have been published. 15 achievements have been awarded and 17 achievements have been patented by the National and Local authouities.
Since the execution of the post-doctor program in physics of Shandong University, totally 9 post-doctors have been enrolled. It is planed to receive 4-5 post-doctors each year. There are special apartment(With kitchen and two rooms each) for the post-doctors. The spouse and children of the post-doctor can move to live together. Special policy is made for the children's enrollment and the spouse's job of the post-doctor. Fresh academic environment and excellent research condition make each post-doctor feel at ease to work in Shandong University.
