Xianmin Jin is a Distinguished Researcher in the Department of Physics and Astronomy at Shanghai Jiao Tong University (SJTU). He graduated from University of Science and Technology of China (USTC) with a PhD in Physics in 2008. After two-year postdoctoral research in Hefei National Laboratory for Physical Sciences at the Microscale he joined the Clarendon Laboratory and Department of Physics at the University of Oxford as postdoctoral associate as well as a joint research fellow with National University of Singapore. He was awarded Marie Curie Fellow by European Commission in 2012, and was elected Wolfson College Fellow of University of Oxford in 2013. He started establishing the Laboratory of Quantum Technology (QUTEC) in SJTU in 2013 and joined SJTU as a full-time PI in 2014.
