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 areas:

1. The Chemical Dynamics and Spectroscopy group is searching for new members specializing in studying chemical reactions in gas and/or condensed phases 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 where physical chemistry methods and ideas are being applied to.

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. 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 experiments of quantum gases, cold-atom based quantum optics and nonlinear optics, as well as ultrafast and ultraintense lasers.

3. The Biophysics group invites individuals interested in technology development to address biological problems, including but not limited to advanced microscopy, nanotechnology, bioinstrumentation, and biosensors.

4. 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, and nanostructures are especially welcome.

Candidates at the Assistant, Associate, and Full Research Fellow (equivalent to Assistant, Associate, and Full Professor) levels will be considered. They must have a Ph.D. degree and will be expected to develop an internationally recognized research program. Adequate start-up packages will be provided to set up the laboratories. Please send the application package containing a cover letter, a full CV with a complete publication record, a research proposal, and the names of at least three references to Dr. Tsyr-Yan Dharma Yu via facultysearch@pub.iams.sinica.edu.tw. Letters of recommendation can also be sent to the same address.
