The Institute of Astronomy at National Tsing Hua University invites applicants in all research areas of astronomy and astrophysics for a number of faculty positions to start in the 2019 spring or fall semester. Rankings of assistant, associate, and full professorship will be all considered, depending on the candidate qualification. Current research activities at NTHU/IoA involve theoretical investigations and observations of high-energy astrophysics, supernova simulations, cosmology, and star and planet formation, and gravitational waves by using Chandra, XMM, Fermi, NuSTAR, Hubble, Spitzer, SMA, JCMT, ALMA, etc. Faculties are involved with large surveys such as Subaru's HyperSuprimeCam survey, AKARI Infrared survey, Fastsound infrared spectroscopic survey, KAGRA gravitational wave observatory, CFHT's SPIRou Legacy Survey, JCMT large projects (BISTRO, Tansient, TOP-SCOPE), and have acess to supercomputers at NCHC and CSCS. On-going instrumentation projects include the Compton Spectrometer and Imager (COSI) in collaboration with UCB/SSL and an optical observing network for exoplanet transit. Successful candidates are expected to teach at both undergraduate and graduate levels, and to develop internationally competitive research programs. Research experiences beyond Ph.D. are preferred.
