Multiple tenure-track and tenured faculty positions, Academia Sinica, Taiwan

The Institute of Atomic and Molecular Sciences 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:

  1. The Chemical Dynamics and Spectroscopy group is searching for new members specializing in the study of chemical reactions in gas and condensed phases (or at interfaces) utilizing experimental as well as computational techniques. Applicants who are interested in atmospheric chemistry or the chemistry of unstable species are especially welcome. We are also open to candidates from interdisciplinary fields. This group has its roots in gas-phase reaction dynamics and spectroscopy. Furthermore, its research has been extended to other applications, e.g., carbohydrate structure determination.
  2. The Atomic Physics and Optical Science group invites individuals with expertise in atomic physics, optical sciences, and quantum science and technology, either theoretically or experimentally. This group has existing research strengths in quantum gases, cold-atom based quantum optics, and nonlinear optics, as well as ultrafast and ultra-intense lasers.
  3. The Biophysics and Bioanalytical Technology group invites individuals interested in the development of technologies to address 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 Science group is searching for a new faculty member specializing in the synthesis, characterization, simulation, and application of advanced materials. Applicants who are interested in the fundamental physics and chemistry of materials, surfaces, and nano-/quantum materials are especially welcome


Candidates for Assistant, Associate, and Full Research Fellow, which are equivalent to Assistant, Associate, and Full Professor, are invited to apply. Eligible candidates must have a doctoral degree and will be expected to develop world-class research programs. Adequate start-up packages and laboratory space will be provided. Applications for a Research Specialist position are also accepted. Qualified candidates are expected to support research laboratories in establishing outstanding research programs.


An application package containing a cover letter, a full curriculum vitae with a complete publication record, a research proposal, and a minimum of three recommendation letters should be sent to:
