Tenure-track Faculty Position in Earth Sciences (IES, AS)

Job Details

Academia Sinica (AS) is the premier, state-funded research organization in Taiwan. The Institute of Earth Sciences (IES), one of the 32 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 operates several field observation networks in Taiwan and other parts of Asia. Current research at IES includes observational and computational seismology, active tectonics and geohazards, isotope geochemistry and cosmochemistry, orogenic processes and crustal evolution, and geodynamics and physical properties of deep Earth. We invite outstanding candidates who will strengthen and complement the above research fields to apply for the tenure-track faculty position at the assistant research fellow (equivalent to assistant professor) level or above. Applicants who use innovative quantitative methods based on big-data sciences (e.g. artificial intelligence) are particularly welcome. Applicants must have a Ph.D. degree and an excellent record of independent research, and please send his/her curriculum vitae including a full list of publications, three or more names of references (with contact information), and a research plan to Review of the applications will begin on December 31, 2023, and continue until the position is filled.

The Institute of Earth Sciences (IES), founded in 1982, is one of the thirty research institutes of Academia Sinica. The orientation of research is divided into two parts : basic research and applied research. Basic research is to improve our understanding of the earth system and applied research is to conduct natural hazard mitigation and resource management. Therefore, IES emphasizes research domain in geochemistry, tectonophysics, mineral physics and seismology. Housed in a building with more than 8,000 square meters of floor space, IES is well equipped for research, including several facilities, a library with key journals and a fast network link to the world. At present, IES faculty members are carrying out a wide range of research projects including theoretical and applied seismology, seismic tomography, seismotectonics, source physics of earthquakes, earthquake geology, active tectonics, remote sensing structure geology, high-pressure phase transformation, isotopic studies on the formation of our solar system , U-series disequilibrium and application to surface processes, isotope hydrology, composition of the SCLM in East Asia, tectonic evolution of Taiwan, tectonic evolution of Central Asia and continental growth, continental subduction and exhumation of UHP metamorphic terranes, magma chamber processes, volcanology and past climatic changes in East Asia. Moreover, several international collaboration projects are being carried out in order to enhance Taiwan's effort by importing technology and expertise from advanced partners.
