Multiple Tenure-Track and Tenured Faculty Positions, Academia Sinica, Taiwan

The IAMS in Academia Sinica, one of the most eminent research institutes in Taiwan, invites applications for multiple tenure-track or tenured faculty positions in the following areas:

  1. The Chemical Dynamics and Spectroscopygroup is searching for new members specializing in studying chemical reactions in gas, condensed phases, and/or on interfaces utilizing experimental or computational techniques. Applicants who are interested in atmospheric chemistry and/or the chemistry of unstable species are particularly welcome. We are also open to accepting candidates from interdisciplinary fields. This group is rooted in gas-phase reaction dynamics and spectroscopy; its research have been extended to other applications (e.g. structure determination of carbohydrates).
  2. The Atomic Physics and Optical Sciencegroup invites individuals with expertise in atomic physics, optical science, and quantum science and technology—either theoretical or practical. Higher priority will be given to theoretical quantum many-body physics with ultracold quantum gases and theoretical quantum optics. This group has existing strengths in the experiments of quantum gases, cold-atom based quantum and nonlinear optics, as well as ultrafast and ultraintense lasers.
  3. The Biophysics and Bioanalytical Technologygroup invites individuals interested in technology development for addressing unique biological questions, including but not limited to computational biophysics, single-cell technology, advanced microscopy, nanotechnology, bioinstrumentation, and biosensors.
  4. The Advanced Materials and Surface Sciencegroup is searching for a new faculty member specializing in the synthesis, characterization, simulation, and application of advanced materials. Applicants interested in fundamental physics and chemistry of materials, surfaces, and nanostructures are particularly welcome.

Candidates at the assistant, associate, and full research fellow (equivalent to assistant, associate, and full professor) levels will be considered. Candidates must have a Ph.D. degree and will be expected to develop an internationally recognized research program. Adequate start-up packages will be provided. Application packages containing a cover letter, a full CV with a complete publication record, a research proposal, and a minimum of three referees may be sent to facultysearch@pub.iams.sinica.edu.tw. Letters of recommendation can also be sent to the same address. Please address all other correspondence to
