Tenure-track faculty positions available at the Genomics Research Center, Academia Sinica, Taipei, Taiwan, ROC

The Genomics Research Center at Academia Sinica invites talented and dedicated individuals to join our dynamic team. The newly formed Metabolic Sciences Division is seeking candidates with a research focus on understanding metabolic and bioenergetic mechanisms that impact human health. We are particularly interested in applicants with expertise (or with strong interests) in developing metabolomics/lipidomics and metabolic flux analyses to examine physiological or pathological processes related to metabolism and inflammation.

The Genomics Research Center (GRC; is organized into three Divisions of Chemical Biology, Medical Biology, and Metabolic Sciences, aiming to translate scientific discoveries from genomics, proteomics, metabolomics, and glycomics approaches to disease therapeutics and diagnostics for precision healthcare and medicine. Candidates with expertise complementary to existing research programs of the Medical and Chemical Biology Divisions are also encouraged to apply:   

Medical Biology Division: Interested in candidates with experience in applying single-cell/spatial systems biology to tumor immunology and in stem cell/organoid tissue development to model human disease.

Chemical Biology Division: Seeking expertise in chemical biology to study human diseases including, but not limited to, metabolic syndrome, neurological disorders, cancer, and infectious diseases.


Applicants should hold a Ph.D. degree or its equivalent, with appropriate postdoctoral research experience. Successful recruits will be appointed at the levels of Assistant, Associate, or Full Research Fellow, equivalent to academic ranks of Assistant, Associate, or Full Professor at a university. A generous start-up package, followed by annual intramural support, will be provided.
