*** this position has been closed and new applications are no longer accepted. ***

The Institute of Physics at the Academia Sinica invites applications from outstanding theoretical scientists for a junior tenure-track faculty position in the Medium and High-energy Physics Group to enhance and develop its research programs, and to initiate and lead new directions.

Academia Sinica is the leading basic research institution in Taiwan, government funded and made up of an increasingly international community of scholars. The group covers all major areas of nuclear, particle, astroparticle physics, and cosmology. In particular, there are active theory programs on heavy flavor physics and CP-violation, perturbative QCD, neutrino and nuclear astrophysics, beyond standard model phenomenology, early universe, and quantum gravity. Besides the theory group, the experimental groups here conduct active experimental and instrumentation programs on collider, hadron structure, cosmic rays, neutrinos, dark matter and beyond standard model physics. We are key participants in international collaborations like AMS, CDEX, ATLAS/LHC, COMPASS/CERN, LEPS/SPring-8, SeaQuest/FNAL, and KAGRA while leading a domestic TEXONO experiment on reactor neutrinos.
