The Institute of Modern Physics (IMP), affiliated with the Chinese Academy of Sciences, was founded in l957. As of 2013, there are 852 staff members including 371 researchers, and 296 students for master or doctorate of science. IMP operates the Heavy Ion Research Facility in Lanzhou (HIRFL), which consists of the Sector Focusing Cyclotron, the Separated Sector Cyclotron, the Cooler Storage Ring, and a number of experimental terminals. After a half century of development, IMP has become the most important research center for heavy ion sciences in China. We have established active and fruitful collaborations with more than forty institutions worldwide.  

Based on HIRFL, we conduct fundamental research in nuclear and atomic physics, and the main research subjects include nuclear reactions, nuclear spectroscopy, the properties of nuclear matter, the chemistry of super-heavy elements and synthesis of new super heavy isotopes, key reactions in stellar evolution, high energy density physics, and highly charged heavy ion interactions. 

In 2010, IMP took charge of the project Advanced Nuclear Fission Energy – ADS Transmutation System, a Strategic Priority Research Program of the Chinese Academy of Sciences. In collaboration with other institutes in China, the project was approved by the central government at the end of 2010. This long-term project aims to build a demo facility for the transmutation of nuclear waste produced in nuclear power plants. IMP established a department which is dedicated fully to the R&D of a high-intensity superconducting proton accelerator and spallation target system. Now the roadmap for the ADS project is fixed and the research program is on track.  


Based on the needs of the research areas and the disciplines development of the IMP, CAS. We are now publicly recruiting outstanding technology talents and scholars of relevant disciplines who possess research abilities and innovation awareness.
