Position Description:    

The Medium and High Energy Theory Group ( in the Institute of Physics, Academia Sinica, Taipei, Taiwan invites applications for postdoctoral positions beginning in Winter or Spring 2023. The group covers theoretical research areas of astroparticle, particle, nuclear physics, and cosmology, in particular: 

- Heavy flavor physics, CP-violation, and perturbative QCD 
- Relativistic kinetic theory, fluid dynamics, and heavy ion collisions 
- High-energy cosmic rays and neutrinos, high-energy astrophysics 
- Hadronic interactions, extensive air showers, and event generators
- Neutrinos in dense medium and r-process nucleosynthesis
- Beyond the Standard Model phenomenology in collider and astrophysics
- Early Universe and gravitational waves

Successful fellows are expected to conduct independent research. The topic is desired to align with the fields of the group's research fellows, including Anatoli Fedynitch, Hsiang-nan Li, Kin-Wang Ng, Meng-Ru Wu, Di-Lun Yang, and Tzu-Chiang Yuan. Collaboration with other faculty members in the Institute of Physics, other local institutes including the NCTS (Taipei, Taiwan), ASIAA (Taipei, Taiwan), or international institutes with overlapping or complementary interests are encouraged. 

The contract duration is 2 years and can be extended, subject to performance and available funding. Applicants are expected to have obtained their PhD degree in physics or astrophysics by the starting date, which is flexible within 2023. 

The application should contain a curriculum vitae, a publication list, a statement of research interests and plans, three reference letters sent via AcademicJobsOnline platform. Review of the applications will begin on December 15th 2022 and continue until the position is filled. Questions can be sent to Dr. Anatoli Fedynitch ( or Dr. Di-Lun Yang ( 

Additional Information: Academia Sinica is the leading basic research institution in Taiwan funded by the government, and with an increasingly international research community. The Medium and High-energy Physics Theory and Experimental Group (中央研究院物理研究所 Institute of Physics, Academia Sinica) at the Institute of Physics conduct active programs on colliders, hadron structure, cosmic rays, neutrinos, dark matter and beyond the Standard Model physics, participating in international collaborations such as IceCube, AMS, CDEX, ATLAS/LHC, COMPASS/CERN, LEPS/SPring-8, SeaQuest/FNAL, TEXONO, LIGO, and KAGRA.
