The Institute of Physics at Academia Sinica in Taiwan invites applicants for one or multiple postdoctoral positions. 

Successful candidates will work in Dr. Anatoli Fedynitch's group choosing from the following topics:

  • Interact with astrophysics theorists to develop model-driven multimessenger data analyses as a member of the IceCube Neutrino Observatory
  • Characterize the impact of atmospheric neutrino flux uncertainties on the potential of discovery of prompt neutrinos from heavy flavor decay in IceCube's data
  • Perform other data analyses as a member of IceCube
  • Study the performance of the IceCube Detector Upgrade and use machine learning to improve future (or current) data analyses
  • Simulate and characterize the performance of a dense, novel radio detector (BURSTT) for cosmic ray detection; develop innovative ideas for triggering; study potential cosmic ray science goals; contribute to detector construction or deployment.


  • PhD degree in physics, astrophysics or related field
  • Prior experience with simulation or data analysis
  • Desired background in one of the following fields: large volume neutrino telescopes, Super-K, gamma-ray telescopes, air shower detectors, machine learning, or similar


Application materials:

  • Curriculum vitae
  • Publication list and statement of research interests
  • Three reference letters sent via AcademicJobsOnline platform


The position starts in 2023, initially for 2 years with possible extensions. Teaching is not required. The collaboration with other domestic or international institutions is strongly encouraged and longer exchanges with collaborator's institutions will be encouraged. During the contract duration, applications for independent research fellowships from Academia Sinica are possible, which add an individual research budget and may increase the salary for exceptional candidates.

Application review will begin on January 7th 2023 and continue until a suitable candidate is found. For inquiries, please contact Dr. Anatoli Fedynitch


About the group:

The Academia Sinica campus is located in Taipei's Nangang District. Our high-energy theory group (HETG) tackles current problems in particle and nuclear theory, cosmology, neutrinos and astrophysics. The successful applicant will join a newly founded group by Dr. Anatoli Fedynitch within the HETG. The group organizes regular seminars and journal clubs.


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 Groups at the Institute of Physics conduct active experimental and instrumentation programs on colliders, hadron structure, cosmic rays, neutrinos, dark matter and beyond the Standard Model physics, participating in international collaborations such as AMS, CDEX, ATLAS/LHC, COMPASS/CERN, IceCube, LEPS/SPring-8, SeaQuest/FNAL, TEXONO, LIGO, and KAGRA.
