The Institute of Physics ( http://www.phys.sinica.edu.tw ), Academia Sinica in Taipei, Taiwan, invites applications for tenure-track faculty positions in the areas of particle and gravitational physics, physics of active biological systems, and quantum materials physics. Areas of particular interest include, but are not limited to, angle-resolved photoemission spectroscopy (ARPES), crystal growth, thin film growth using MBE, and theoretical condensed matter physics. The recruitment is generally targeted at the Assistant Research Fellow level, but candidates with exceptional qualifications will be considered at more senior ranks.
The Institute of Physics is committed to the pursuit of excellence in research. 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.
Inquiries and applications should be sent electronically to Ms. Edeline Shu-Ai Chou, Institute of Physics, Academia Sinica, Nankang, Taipei 11529, Taiwan; e-mail: firstname.lastname@example.org; phone: +886-2-27896718. The application materials should include a cover letter describing the major accomplishments of the applicant, a curriculum vitae including a complete publication list, up to five 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 recommendation letters when immediately available). The recruitment starts now until the positions are filled.
About Institute of Physics, Academia Sinica, Taipei
Academia Sinica ( http://www.sinica.edu.tw/main_e.shtml ), the most preeminent academic institution in Taiwan, was founded in 1928 to promote and undertake scholarly research in sciences and humanities. The Institute of Physics ( http://www.phys.sinica.edu.tw/index.php?eng=T ) has been playing important roles in the development of physics and technology in Taiwan. Consisting of about 48 research faculties supported by more than 469 staff members, the Institute is committed to excellence in frontier research programs in Nanoscience, Complexity, Medium and High Energy Physics. Specific interests are in both theoretical and experimental investigations of particle physics and cosmology, condensed-matter and surface physics, statistical and computational physics, biophysics, as well as fluid mechanics and nonlinear physics.
