We invite applications from motivated candidates with experience in various fields, including marine biology, developmental biology, microbiology, and computational biology. Diverse research projects on evolutionary genomics and EvoDevo are available in various marine invertebrates, such as corals, acoels, brachiopods, and bryozoans. With your own research ideas and projects, we also support applications for competitive international fellowships. Please email a recent CV describing your background and research interests to Yi-Jyun.
Several postdoctoral fellowships are available for those who would like to work at Academia Sinica, Taiwan. Please check your eligibility and discuss your research plan with Yi-Jyun before applying.
