Aging is a progressive process where accumulation of impairments leads to defective tissue and organ functions. In the cellular level, stress and DNA damage induce senescence and stop cell cycle progression, although it is not clear how cellular senescence impacts overall tissue regulation and deterioration. Arterial stiffness, mediated by the resident vascular smooth muscle cells (VSMCs), is a significant risk factor in many age-related diseases. We are recently funded by the National Health Research Institute to study the intrinsic and extrinsic regulation of VSMC senescence in arterial aging using an engineered blood vessel model system and are seeking qualified candidates to work on this project.

The postdoctoral fellow will optimize the engineered blood vessel model system to simulate the healthy and aged/diseased tissue structure and study the effects of microenvironment and cell-cell interaction on VSMC phenotype and arterial stiffening.

Land plants include around 400,000 species of great diversity and have important roles in terrestrial ecosystems. The One Thousand Plant Transcriptomes Initiative (1KP) is a global collaboration to examine the diversification of plant species, genes and genomes across the more than one-billion-year history of green plants dating back to the ancestors of flowering plants and green algae. Here, the PI of the Lab of Plant Development and Molecular Evolution, the Department of Life Science, National Taiwan University (NTU), as part of the One Thousand Plant Transcriptomes Initiative (Leebens-Mack JH, Barker MS, Carpenter EJ...Wang CN.,..., et al. Nature 574:679-685, 2019), has sequenced the vegetative transcriptomes of 1,124 species that span the diversity of land plants, green algae and red algae, as well as 31 plant genomes. Gene sequences for more than 1100 plant species have been released by an international consortium of nearly 200 plant scientists, the culmination of a nine-year research project.

Notably, in our 2019 Nature paper, we found that large expansions of gene families preceded the origins of green plants, land plants and vascular plants, whereas whole genome duplications are inferred to have occurred repeatedly throughout the evolution of flowering plants and ferns. In addition to genome duplications, the expansion of key gene families has contributed to the evolution of multicellularity and complexity in green plants. In particular, genes related to the growth of plant form have been expanded such as those relating meristem (stem cells) functions. The radiation of plants in quest for land was accompanied by developmental innovations, such as three-dimensional (3D) growth, roots, leaves, and flowers. These developmental novelties are initiated from apical or axillary meristems that contain undifferentiated stem cells. Meristem development of land plants seems to be universally controlled by the WUSCHEL-RELATED HOMEOBOX (WOX or WUS) transcription factors. In the flowering plant (angiosperm) model Arabidopsis thaliana, WUS regulates maintenance of stem cells niche in shoot apical meristem (SAM) with its partners of the CLAVATA(CLV)-WUS signaling pathway. Components of the meristem GRN are deeply conserved in all lineages of land plants, including the bryophytes that represent the earliest diverging lineage of land plants and comprise of liverworts, mosses, and hornworts (Wu et al., 2019). Given the pivotal roles of the CLV-WUS gene regulatory network (GRN) in meristem development, evolution of this GRN has been proposed to associate with morphological innovations and radiation in land plants (Harrison and Morris, 2018). However, functions of the meristem GRN components in these earliest land plants are understudied. In order to elucidate the functional evolution of meristem GRN in land plants, Liverwort Marchantia provides an unique model with the advantages as following: (1) an appropriate number of candidate genes in the meristem GRN for experiment; (2) a well-annotated and relatively small genome (218.7 Mb); (3) ease of growth and genetic manipulation in the laboratory; (4) a substantial historical literature; (5) availability of genome editing by the CRISPR (Clustered Regularly Interspaced Short Palindromic Repeats)-Cas9 (CRISPR-associate protein-9 nuclease) technology; and (6) a vibrant international research community (International Marchantia Workshop held every 2 year w/ more than 20 countries including Taiwan in joining). Our collaborators at Kyoto University in Japan recently characterized functions of Marchantia CLV1 genes, all of which share conservation with those in Arabidopsis.

The increasing availability of high-quality plant genome sequences and advances in functional genomics are enabling research on genome evolution across the green tree of life. But to be continuously advance on this leading trend, we need experts who received multi-discipline trainings on genomics, morphogenesis and evolution, jointly come to study the function of these genes related to meristem development and answer why family of these meristem genes are so much expanded. The huge amount of genome sequences require to be analyzed in large scale. The current trend is to train computers with artificial intelligence (AI) to deal with such a big data! This larger international project is therefore call to invite post-doc candidates not only to be able to do the wet lab by using molecular biology tools to study gene functions, but also to have computational and programing skills for handling big genomic data to infer the evolution of plant stem cell gene families, in answering the mystery why genes related to the meristem growth tend to expand in physically complex flowering plants.

This proposed project therefore aims to:

1. include one post-doc research associate to decipher evolution of plant meristem GRN and shed light on plant functional genomics, evolution and developmental biology.
2. Strengthen the multidisciplinary research capability of Taiwan to gain technology and research idea transfer from the post-doc who come from a top US university leading in researches on plant biology and evolutionary biology, particularly in plant evolutionary developmental biology and evolutionary genomics;
3. Implement cutting-edge and the current trend of computational technologies (e.g., artificial intelligence) in large-scale phylogenetics and evolutionary genomics analyses from the top US university where the post-doc graduated from; and
4. Promote a tighter international collaboration and staff exchange between NTU and the top US university.

We plan to recruit a talented US postdoctoral researcher who received multidisciplinary Ph.D. training in plant evolutionary developmental biology with disciplines in genomics, molecular and evolutionary biology from a top US university to investigate the meristem evolution in land plants with focuses on characterization of the Marchantia meristem GRN and large-scale phylogenomic analysis of meristem GRN components. This is essential for our current international project (One Thousand Plant Transcriptomes Initiative) to move on. We as an international team have regular month meeting with the Japan group (Prof. Takayuki Kohchi, Kyoto University) and the Australian group (Prof. John Bowman, Monash University), so the post-doc candidate will help to coordinate each other’s research progress. The successful candidate will also contribute to the academic community in Taiwan by organizing and/or participation in academic seminars, workshops, conferences, or international collaboration and exchange. Particularly, the 2021 EMBO Marchantia workshop is going to be held in NTU, Taiwan. We urgently need this post-doc candidate to transfer his expertise from top US research institutes to join this international project to facilitate the publications of research outcomes.

The successful candidate will be arranged for participating the following activities to facilitate his/her engagement in NTU community:
1. Academic exchange

NTU - Graduate Institute of Environmental Engineering

Graduate Institute of Environmental Engineering

The Graduate Institute of Environmental Engineering (GIEE) at National Taiwan University has a strong foundation in air pollution research and would be further strengthened by adding an atmospheric chemist. By recruiting an atmospheric chemist, we will be able to more comprehensively address the chemical transformations that occur near emission sources, during transport, and at receptor sites, including after inhalation by individuals or after deposition in the environment. Here at GIEE we have excellent researchers addressing the physics of air pollution, and this will sharpen the chemistry of air pollution component. We would like to attract an international talent to address this.

We are recruiting an atmospheric chemist for 2-4 years to lead several projects to completion and collaborate on projects led by other researchers. For instance, we have recently proposed to tackle research questions surrounding transboundary pollution from Southeast Asia (SEA) to Taiwan, which includes monitoring at the source and receptor locations, modeling the transport in between. It will be invaluable to have an atmospheric chemist on board to assess the impact of chemical transformations from source to receptor, including as it relates to public and ecological health. To address the transboundary pollution issue, we have proposed to develop a PM2.5 monitoring network to reach underrepresented areas in Southeast Asia. Taiwan already has a robust PM2.5 monitoring network but is still negatively impacted by transboundary pollution, thus is uniquely situated to be a leader in SEA for establishing a PM2.5 network of the same standard as its own. In order to develop the same quality of network we will first develop the protocols of calibration, sampling, maintenance, operator training, and data management and then distribute the monitors to SEA locations.

Center for Condensed Matter Sciences

The surface nanoscience group at the premier center for condensed matter sciences(CCMS), National Taiwan University(NTU), is soliciting a qualified and highly-motivated postdoc candidate to conduct research in asymmetric Janus transition metal dichalcogenide (TMD) ultrathin layers.

The Janus TMD monolayer refers to an asymmetric structure with a formula MXY (M: metal, X,Y: chalcogen atoms). The M metal atom layer is sandwiched by X and Y chalcogen layers respectively on either side. This structure breaks the out-of-plane symmetry thus can introduce many interesting effects. Two issues we are interested are, first, can TMD phase control be achieved through the Janus structure? For example, can monolayer 1T-VSe2 be made into the 2H-V(XY) phase and give rises to ferromagnetism? Second, what is the characteristics of the charge density wave electronic ground state in Janus ultrathin TMD layers. We are seeking postdocs to answer these questions.

NTU - Department of Chemical Engineering

Department of Chemical Engineering

The Department of Chemical Engineering at National Taiwan University has a strong foundation in renewable energy research, including battery, solar cells, and supercapacitors. However, more and more attention has been paid in the field of bio-renewable energy, including bio-fuels and bio-oil converted from agriculture waste. Global agriculture generates huge amounts of biomass in the form of waste products. For example, each year the global sugar industry produces around 540 million tons of sugarcane bagasse, the fibrous residue after the stalks are crushed for their sucrose-rich juice. The conventional way to deal with the biomass waste is to burn it, which causes air pollution and environmental contamination. In fact, lignocellulosic biomass contains high levels of commercially valuable molecules, but extraction and conversion is extremely difficult and costly. It is also difficult to achieve a high selectivity of a certain valuable product due to the complicated structure of biomass. However, if the biomass waste could be efficiently converted into valuable chemicals for food production, pharmaceuticals, cosmetics, and biofuel industries, we could significantly replace petroleum-derived chemicals, which not only reduces the utilization of fossil fuel but also creates a new renewable source of chemicals and energy for a greener and more sustainable society. Catalytic conversion of biomass has become the main route for the transformation of biomass into commodity chemicals or liquid fuels but conventional supported solid catalysts have low efficiency due to low metal loading, low surface area, and non-uniform distribution of metal nanoparticles on the support. Therefore, an alternative process, such as hydrothermal liquefaction, is highly demanded in our department.

Liquefaction of lignocellulosic biomass by hydrothermal treatment: lignin is produced in large quantities as a waste product in many industrial processes such as paper and pulp industry. It is the primary ingredient in lignocellulosic biomass and it is made up of methoxylated phenylpropane units. The composition of lignin varies significantly from plant to plant and it is also possible to isolate lignin with different properties (molecular weight, solubility, etc.) depending on the isolation method used. Lignin is a great source of aromatics and hence if lignin is depolymerized efficiently it will produce value-added chemicals and fuel additives. Therefore, the purpose of this recruitment is to investigate the potential applications of lignin in the synthesis of materials, plastics (additives or an ingredient), aromatic monomers and biofuels.

NTHU - Center for World Austronesia and Indigenous Peoples

Center for World Austronesia and Indigenous Peoples

The Center for World Austronesia and Indigenous Peoples (CWAIP) at NTHU was established at the end of 2016 and has achieved its initial goal in setting up an undergraduate interdisciplinary minor program on Austronesian Studies. The next stage is to set up an English MA program on Austronesian Studies, the first of its kind in the region. Through the research and teaching programs, we aim to strengthen the collaboration with international communities to contribute to the knowledge in the field.

Research and teaching have been the main focus of The Center for World Austronesia and Indigenous Peoples (CWAIP) since its inception. The research goal is to tackle the common and urgent concerns in the region by bringing together experts in the comparative Austronesian studies; for example, CWAIP held an international conference (2016) on Hierarchy and Egalitarianism in Austronesia/ Oceania which resulted in a special issue on the topic in Anthropological Forum in 2019. Emergent issues such as endangered language revival are among the conference themes the Center has supported which bring together experts and practitioners to solve pressing social problems. The proposed English MA program on Austronesian Studies aims to consolidate the current strength of the faculty in order to increase the influence of NTHU in this area of research and to connect the research on Austronesian Taiwan to the wider Austronesian (and indigenous) world.

We will organize international conferences every 2-3 years, annual workshops on teaching and research, and regular lecture series to foster the research networks. The planned research themes include the following: colonial history and ethnic relations, religious conversion, moral economy in the neoliberal era, leadership and social change, legal tradition and customary law, migration and urbanization, literature and society, culture and rights, indigenous citizenship and transitional justice etc.

College of Biological Science and Technology

Our team is currently tools and technologies for clinical migraine biomarker detection. About 10% of global population is suffering from migraine, which is one of the most function-impairing form of headache. Patients would experience pulsating pain coupled with nausea, vomiting, and sensitivity to light, sound, or smell for at least 4 hours. These symptoms often cause disruption of the patients’ daily routine. Current treatments of migraine are often done through medication. These medications must be consumed before or upon migraine’s onset, otherwise their effect would be vastly reduced. A migraine alert/forecast system would help remind the patient to take the medications before migraine onset and avoid potential economic and life quality loss. Currently our team can predict the occurrence of migraine within 36 hours using resting stage EEG with ~80% accuracy. We wish to build a non-invasive portable migraine alert system for the patients. Aside from medications, vagus nerve stimulation (VNS) has also been proved to ease migraine symptoms. We would like to further integrate our alert system with VNS to provide real-time VNS treatment for migraine patients. Furthermore, the resting state EEG collected could also be used for clinical diagnosis and clinical evaluation. Thus, our system would be able to cover diagnosis, forecasting and treatment of migraine. In order to develop the alert system and compatible VNS tool, we need to recruit professional in EEG, BCI, Matlab programming and machine learning. Furthermore, since our research involves several different disciplines, we would also need professional to assist in cross-discipline communication and integration. Our team has collaborated with Shwartz Center of UCSD for several years. In the last 3 years, we have published 6 journal papers together. Thus, we would want to continue recruit professional in brain science from UCSD.

International Center for Cultural Studies

The International Center for Cultural Studies (ICCS), based in National Chiao Tung University (NCTU) in Hsinchu, was established in 2012. ICCS aims to advance the interdisciplinary, inter-university, and trans-national intellectual pursuit, focusing on Inter-Asia Cultural Studies, through joint research projects across the humanities and social sciences.

ICCS founded the Consortium of Inter-Asia Cultural Studies of the University System of Taiwan (UST) in 2012 and featured the International Program in Inter-Asia Cultural Studies (IACS_UST). IACS takes international students not only from East and Southeast Asia, such as South Korea, Japan, Vietnam, Malaysia, Indonesia, the Philippines, India, China, and Taiwan but also from Central Asia, Middle East, Africa, Europe, and the US.

ICCS has been awarded as The Featured Areas Research Center Program within the framework of the Higher Education SPROUT Project by the Ministry of Education. Started from 2018, ICCS launched the five-year joint research project: “Conflict, Justice, and Decolonization: Critical Studies in Inter-Asian Societies.” The research team involves 36 researchers from different universities (including six postdoctoral fellows), with five subprojects and 36 topics, bridging researchers from philosophy, history, sociology, anthropology, economic history, literature, art, gender studies, cultural studies, etc.

The themes of the five sub-projects are as follows:
1. The Politics of Memory and the Art of Governance: Inter-Asian Studies on State, Society, Ethnicity, and History
2. Inter-Asian Decolonization of Knowledge under the Shadow of Post/Cold War Culture
3. The Emerging Political Economy of the 21st Century: The New Rise of China, Neoliberalism, and Neocolonialism
4. Aging Modernity, Reconfiguration of Urban Space, Migration and Subalternity
5. Toward a Society of Equality and Coexistence in the Inter-Asian Context: Civic Participation, Legal Reform, Social and Artistic Intervention, Trans-local Free Association

In adjacent to this macro-project, ICCS also initiated a trans-national and cross-local joint research project on the theme: "Migration, Logistics and Unequal Citizens in Contemporary Global Context." This joint research project involves 35 researchers from 12 international research centers. It has been awarded by the Consortium of Humanities Centers and Institutes (CHCI) and the Mellon Foundation as a Global Humanities Institute (GHI). The themes of this GHI include (1) Conditions of Migration and Precarious Lives; (2) Geo-Economic-Political Zoning Politics, Global Logistics, and Local Infrastructure Initiatives; (3) Theoretical Issues Concerning the Questions of Citizenship Politics as well as the Increasing Cases of Contemporary Unequal Citizens and Modern Slavery. http://ghi2020.blog.nctu.edu.tw/ Until 2019, ICCS has recruited ten postdoctoral researchers and cultivated them as scholars with abundant academic publications.

To establish a sustainable international research center and to further advance our international collaboration of joint research projects, we hire outstanding postdoctoral researchers at home and abroad to continue executing our global collaborative projects with international partners. We also want to offer opportunities for young scholars to establish their research projects during the transitional period.

We welcome young scholars from the humanities and social sciences who are interested in developing an interdisciplinary project with us.

International College of Semiconductor Technology

Electrons introduced on the surface of liquid helium form a two-dimensional (2D) electron system. In the vicinity of helium surface the electron motion perpendicular to the surface is quantized to form surface bound states with a subband structure of energy spectrum. Along the helium surface the electron motion is almost free. However, by introducing an appropriate micron-scale electrode assembly, one can further quantize the electron motion parallel to the surface. These discrete energy spectra are highly tunable to adjust electric potentials applied to the so-prepared electrodes. Utilizing the transitions between these energy states by irradiating resonant microwaves, electrons on liquid helium surface are unique candidate to form quantum bits (qu-bits). In order to carry out such experiments, we need good skills of micro-nano fabrications and low temperature measurement. Whole procedures require a strong brain and physical power with high concentration without interruptions. Therefore, the participation of young talented researchers is inevitable for this project.

Manipulation and detection of single electrons on liquid helium surface will be pursued. The manipulation and detection here means not only spatial control but also the control of quantum states. The specific purpose of this project is to fabricate so-called microchannel device with micro lithography fabrication technique and to realize a spatial control of single electrons on liquid helium surface and develop a detection technique of their quantum states. The first step is to design and fabricate a microchannel device to localize a single electron at a specific position and the second task is to detect the electron by employing a superconducting micro strip-line resonator. The characterization of the device and single electron detection should be done at around 100mK by using a dilution refrigerator. The detection of quantum state will be done after reading out operation by knowing if the electron exists or not in the trapping potential. If we find the electron, the electron occupied the ground state when the reading out operation was done. Otherwise, the electron occupied the excited state. The observation of Rabi oscillation between the ground state and excited state concludes the success of the project.
