The Medium and High-energy Physics Theory Group in the Institute of Physics, Academia Sinica, Taipei, Taiwan ( invites applications for several post-doctoral positions beginning Spring or Fall 2019. 

The group has diverse interests in particle astrophysics, nuclear and neutrino astrophysics, and cosmology, including theory of inflation, dark matter phenomenology, neutrino oscillations, nucleosynthesis in the early Universe and in astrophysical environments, and multi-messenger observations.

Successful candidates will be expected to work closely with (1) Dr. Kin-Wang Ng and Dr. Yue-Lin Sming Tsai on dark matter and inflation models using cosmological and experimental data, or with (2) Dr. Meng-Ru Wu on neutrino astrophysics, nuclear astrophysics and the related multi-messenger signals, or with (3) Dr. Tzu-Chiang Yuan on beyond-the-Standard-Model physics. Collaboration with other faculty members in the Medium and High-energy Physics Theory Group, or in other local institutes, including the NCTS (Hsinchu, Taiwan), ASIAA (Taipei, Taiwan), and other international institutes may also be expected. 

The available positions are for 2+1 or 1+1 years and may be extended, subject to performance and available funding. The commencement date can be flexible and applicants are expected to have their PhD degree in physics or astrophysics by the commencement date.

Applicants should submit their curriculum vitae, publication list, research interests and plan, and arrange three reference letters sent via AcademicJobsOnline. 

Applications will be reviewed after December 15, 2018. Later applications may also be considered if the positions remain open. 

Inquiries can be sent to Dr. Yue-Lin Sming Tsai (, or Dr. Meng-Ru Wu ( 

Additional Information: 

Academia Sinica is the leading basic research institution in Taiwan, government funded and made up of an increasingly international community of scholars. The Medium and High-energy Physics Theory Group covers all major areas of nuclear, particle, astroparticle physics, and cosmology. In particular, there are active theory programs on heavy favor physics and CP-violation, perturbative QCD, neutrino astrophysics, nuclear astrophysics, beyond the Standard Model phenomenology, early Universe, and quantum gravity. Besides the Theory Group, the Medium and High-energy Physics Experimental Groups conduct active experimental and instrumentation programs on collider, hadron structure, cosmic rays, neutrinos, dark matter and beyond the Standard Model physics and 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.
