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 studying chemical reactions in gas and/or 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 especially welcome. We are also open-minded to candidates from interdisciplinary fields. This group has its roots in gas-phase reaction dynamics and spectroscopy. However, its research has been extended to other applications, e.g., the structure determination of carbohydrates.


  1. 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 strengths in research on quantum gases, cold-atom based quantum optics and nonlinear optics, as well as ultrafast and ultraintense lasers.


  1. The Biophysics and Bioanalytical Technology group invites individuals interested in technology development to address unique biological questions, including, but not limited to, computational biophysics, single-cell technology, advanced microscopy, nanotechnology, bioinstrumentation, and biosensors.


  1. The Advanced Materials and Surface Science is searching for a new faculty member specializing in the synthesis, characterization, simulation, and applications of advanced materials. Applicants who are interested in fundamental physics and chemistry of materials, surfaces, nano- and quantum materials are especially welcome.


Candidates for Assistant, Associate, and Full Research Fellow (equivalent to Assistant, Associate, and Full Professor) are invited to apply. Eligible candidates must have a Ph.D. degree and will be expected to develop world-class research programs. Adequate start-up packages and lab space will be provided. Applications for Research Specialist position are also accepted. Qualified candidates are expected to support research labs at the IAMS in establishing outstanding research programs.

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