Postdoctoral Research Fellowships at Academia Sinica, China

Applications for Postdoctoral Research Fellowships at Academia Sinica for the first Session of 2011 are now being accepted. Starting from August 1, 2010, all applications are to be processed on-line. It is not necessary to send hard copies of application materials. All applications must be submitted between August 1 and September 1, 2010. Appointment of postdoctoral fellows for this session commences on January 1, 2011.

If an applicant has not yet received the doctoral degree, the applicant’s thesis supervisor must provide a letter confirming that the applicant is expected to receive the PhD diploma before the appointment starts. In addition, three letters of recommendation must be received by Academic Affairs Office (AAO) before the September 1 deadline.

A principal investigator may sponsor as many postdoctoral fellows as he or she wishes. However, each project is limited to one applicant only.

Applicants whose affiliation is not with the Division of Mathematics and Physical Sciences may also apply under this Division if their research involves mathematical or scientific content.

For research in an institute within the Division of Humanities and Social Sciences, applicants are required to submit a proposal of 5000-6000 words specifying the aim, significance, background, and methodology of their research project. Application proposals lacking consideration of these issues will be adversely affected.
