Tenure Track Positions in Glycobiology and related areas at Academia Sinica

August 30, 2019
The Institute of Biological Chemistry at Academia Sinica, Taiwan (www.ibc.sinica.edu.tw) seeks outstanding candidates to fill tenure-track faculty positions at all levels. The Institute has a long tradition of excellence in research at the biology/chemistry interface, in particular protein biochemistry, structural biology, glycoscience and the study of other post-translational modifications. Applicants should possess expertise in fields that would strengthen/complement these areas or other research programs in the Institute. We are particularly interested in individuals whose research interests are in chemical biology, glycobiology, membrane trafficking, natural products and protein evolution/design. Individuals with programs that are focused on understanding biological phenomena or the development of new technologies (e.g., tomography, mass spectrometry) to address biological questions are both of interest. Successful candidates will have a joint appointment at the Institute of Biochemical Sciences, National Taiwan University (ibs.ntu.edu.tw), be provided with generous start-up funding and annual intramural support, and enjoy full access to all shared resources in Academia Sinica. Application materials should include: 1) A cover letter with the names of three referees who will write on the applicant’s behalf; 2) A curriculum vitae; 3) A statement of research accomplishments; and 4) A proposal for future research. 
 
Application materials should be combined into a single PDF file and sent to the Chair of Recruitment Committee, c/o Ms. Pei-Ru Liao (email: prliao@gate.sinica.edu.tw). The applicant should arrange for the letters from the three referees to be sent directly to prliao@gate.sinica.edu.tw. Screening of applications will begin on October 15, 2019 and will continue until the positions are filled.
 
Questions can be directed either to Pei-Ru Liao (prliao@gate.sinica.edu.tw) or to Dr. Todd Lowary (tlowary@gate.sinica.edu.tw).
