Professor Ji is the Director of the Institute of Nuclear and Particle Physics, Astronomy, and Cosmology (INPAC), Shanghai Jiao Tong University.
He got a Ph. D. in physics from Drexel University, had post-doctorial positions at California Institute of Technology and Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT), was a junior faculty at MIT from 1991 to 1996. Since 1996, he has been on the faculty at University of Maryland, College Park.He is a fellow of American Physical Society (since 2000) and a recipient of the 2003 oversea outstanding young Chinese scientist award from the National Science Foundation of China. From 2005, he is a Changjiang chair visiting professor (长江讲座教授) at Peking University.
Professor Ji is currently the spokesperson and project leader for the PandaX dark matter search experiment in China's JinPing Deep-Underground Lab in Sichuan, China. PandaX experiment uses the liquid Xe as the detection medium for WIMPs (weekly interacting massive particles). The initial phase of the experiment consisting of 25kg fiducial mass will be deployed in the end of 2012.
