We seek outstanding candidates in the fields of terrestrial biodiversity, including, but not limited to, Behavioral Ecology, Population Ecology, Community Ecology, Macroecology and Conservation Biology, as well as Theoretical Ecology.

       The center provides good start-up funding and substantial internal support for new PIs. The center consists of four divisions: Marine biodiversity and ecosystems, Terrestrial biodiversity and ecosystems, Molecular and genomic evolution, and Microbial diversity. The center is in charge of Taiwan Biodiversity Information Facility (TaiBIF) which is part of GBIF and a sequencing core with multiple platforms of second and third generation high throughput sequencers.

        Academia Sinica is well equipped with latest research facilities across life and physical science discipline and inter-disciplinary collaborations are strongly encouraged.
