  • Academia Sinica is the premier, state-funded research organization in Taiwan. The Institute of Earth Sciences (IES), one of the 31 institutes of Academia Sinica, has strong and active research programs in solid-Earth geophysics and geochemistry with state-of-the-art analytical and computational facilities. The institute also operates several field observation networks in Taiwan and other parts of Asia. Current research in IES includes seismological and geodetic studies, regional and global tectonics, geodynamics, gravity and geomagnetic analysis, high pressure mineral physics, isotope geochemistry, igneous and metamorphic petrology, cosmochemistry, and marine geochemistry. We invite outstanding candidates to apply for several tenure-track research fellow positions (equivalent to university professors) on all levels of seniority. Research areas that complement the aforementioned fields are welcome, although other related fields of Earth sciences will also be considered. Candidates must have a Ph.D. degree with an excellent record of independent research. Interested applicants should send a detailed curriculum vitae, including a full list of publications, three or more names of references (with affiliation and contact information), and a research plan to shewen@gate.sinica.edu.tw.
