The Department of Geography at National Taiwan University (NTU) invites applications for 1–2 appointments at all ranks beginning in August 2016. We recruit scholars trained in earth system sciences, social sciences, or spatial sciences to explore the impacts, vulnerability and adaptation associated with global change (e.g., risks and disasters, coupled natural and human systems, geospatial sciences). We seek applicants whose research complements strengths in the Department and around the University. These positions will enrich the facets of global change research and teaching in the department, and contribute to growth of an interdisciplinary and cross-department research network at NTU. Successful candidates will demonstrate a capacity to carry out collaborative research with colleagues in Geography and other departments. For more information about the Department, please see

Qualified candidates must hold a Ph.D. degree in geography or related academic disciplines at the time of application. Those who finish their study program, including the Ph.D. dissertation requirement, and expect to graduate by May 2016, but do not yet get the diploma can be considered as a qualified candidate, only on the condition with a confirmation from his/her Ph.D. adviser. Applicants should be proficient in lecturing in either English or Mandarin Chinese.
