Faculty position

The Institute of Physics, Academia Sinica in Taipei, Taiwan, invites applications for tenure-track faculty positions in the areas of particle and gravitational physics, physics of active and biological systems, and quantum materials physics. Areas of particular interest include, but are not limited to, granular and soft matter, cell biophysics, physics of biomolecules and polymers, statistical physics, and fluidic phenomena. The recruitment is generally targeted at the Assistant Research Fellow level, but candidates with exceptional qualifications will be considered at more senior ranks.

As Academia Sinica is the most prominent research institution in Taiwan, our institute is committed to the pursuit of excellence in physics research. Faculty can enjoy doing research in a well-equipped environment, and have the chance to apply for various research projects funded by the government or Academia Sinica itself, for example NSTC 2030 Cross-Generation Young Scholar Program, Academia Sinica Career Development Award, Academia Sinica Early-Career Investigator Research Achievement Award, etc.

The successful candidate should have a Ph.D. degree in physics or related areas, and preferably at least two years of postdoctoral experience. She/he is expected to continue a strong tradition of the Institute in earning international recognitions in her/his research fields.

The application materials should be submitted via the AcademicJobsOnline, and should include a cover letter describing the major accomplishments of the applicant, a curriculum vitae, complete publication list, representative journal publications, a statement on future research directions and plans, and the names and contacts of at least three senior scientists who can provide references (or arrange the recommendation letters to be submitted directly via the AcademicJobsOnline). The recruitment starts now until the positions are filled.
