Four Positions, Research Center for Biodiversity, Academia Sinica,  

The Research Center for Biodiversity, Academia Sinica, Taipei, Taiwan  
is in an
expansion mode, with four tenure-track openings now (open-rank but  
scientists preferred) and more openings in the near future. It has  
recruited a new director, Wen-Hsiung Li, who is also the James Watson
Professor at University of Chicago. Information on the center  
research activities
can be found on the web at http://biodiv.sinica.edu.tw/en2007/. The  
currently has several active PIs in marine ecology, especially in the  
West Pacific
marine ecology. It invites applications for two positions in marine  
ecology. The
impact of climate change on marine ecosystems is particularly  
encouraged, but
other areas of ecology will also be considered. The center is also  
strong in
molecular and genomic evolution and has recently set up a sequencing  
core with
one 454 and one Solexa machine. The Academia Sinica wants to establish a
strong program in microbial genomics and the center is now inviting  
for two positions in microbial diversity. For each position, a Ph.D.  
with a minimum
of two years of relevant post-doctoral research experience is  
preferred. The
positions will be open until filled; however, the first review will  
be conducted
before or on August 1. An applicant should submit the names and e-mail
addresses of three references along with CV (including a list of  
publications), 3-5
representative papers (pdf files), and a statement of past  
achievements and
future research interests to Ms. Miao-Suey Lin  
(zomslin at gate.sinica.edu.tw).
