Job description

Academia Sinica is the premier, state-funded research organization in Taiwan. The Institute of Earth Sciences (IES), one of the 31 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 also operates regional seismographic and geodetic networks in Taiwan and other parts of Asia. Current research at IES includes observational and computational seismology, isotope geochemistry and cosmochemistry, active tectonics and geohazards, orogenic processes and crustal evolution, and geodynamics and physical properties of deep Earth. We are looking for applicants at the assistant research scientist level or above with software, mechanical, and electronic backgrounds who can support the ongoing research as well as help to explore new research directions at IES. We particularly encourage applicants with strong technical expertise related to observational seismology and geodesy, both on land and on the seafloor, and code development in computational geophysics to apply. Candidates with a proven record of technical services, innovations, and teamwork experiences are preferred for the position. The research scientists at IES are expected to work for research projects of the institute under the guidance of respective project principle investigators. Interested applicants please send the following documents to before July 31, 2020: a curriculum vitae including a full list of publications/patents, three or more names of references (with affiliation and contact information), and a description of the projects of IES that are most relevant for you to contribute.
