Tenure-Track Position in Terrestrial Biodiversity and Ecosystems
The Biodiversity Research Center, Academia Sinica (BRCAS; http://biodiv.sinica.edu.tw/), Taipei, Taiwan, invites applications for a tenure-track position at the Assistant or Associate Research Fellow level, which is equivalent to “assistant professor” or “associate professor”. We wish to strengthen research in Terrestrial Biodiversity and Ecosystems in this round of recruitment. Nevertheless, we will also consider outstanding applicants in other fields of Biodiversity.
The applicants must possess a PhD, preferably with postdoctoral experience and a successful track record of scientific productivity. 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.
