National Sun Yat-Sen University, Department of Physics
The Department of Physics is located within the ocean-front campus of the Hsi-Tzu Bay near downtown Kaohsiung. Dedicated in 1992 on a scenic hillside, the Physics Building has been home to all scholars and students, housing most research laboratories, classrooms, and offices of faculty, visiting scholars, graduate students, postdoctoral scientists, and administrative staff. The department began wi...th an undergraduate program in 1986 and has since expanded to include the master’s in 1991 and doctorates in 1996. As of 2013, it has 21 full-time faculty members and the enrollment nears 350, with 209 undergraduates, 83 master’s students, and 46 doctorates. The department actively seeks promising young scientists and fervently recruits experienced scholars to lead visionary research. Funded mainly by the government, the department advocates excellence both in teaching and in research, focusing on semiconductor physics, optoelectronics, magnetism and superconductivity, low-temperature physics, computational physics and energy-related sciences and technologies, mostly condensed-matter physics oriented. Its research laboratories are affiliated with the university’s core-facilities and research centers, all equipped with cutting-edge scientific instruments. Powered by an annual research funding above 2 million US dollars, the department publishes more than 80 academic papers each year in prestigious international scientific journals.
Meanwhile, the department’s curricula have grown to its current level of maturity by adapting to
the needs of constantly changing time in meeting the evolving student demands with frequently
updated pedagogical tools and methodologies.
The Department of Physics at National Sun Yat-Sen University, Kaohsiung, Taiwan, is seeking team-spirited and mission-oriented scientists of pedagogical inspiration to fill several faculty positions in the general areas of physics.
