    The KIZ invites applications for three full-time PI positions, two in molecular ecology and one in general ecology, with no taxonomic limitations, and with preference for research that has potential or current application to biodiversity conservation or environmental management. A PI position is equivalent to a western faculty position, and our search is open-rank.

    For the molecular ecology positions, we are looking for individuals who use molecular data, broadly defined. For the general ecology position, all other methodologies are welcome, from modeling to GIS to experiment. The primary determinant is scientific excellence.

    This is a superb opportunity to pursue an independent research program, backed by a large research team and ample funding. Considerable startup funding is available, at levels greater than or equal to those offered by European or US universities. Details of support and salary, plus further details, are posted at http://english.kiz.cas.cn/CR/201309/t20130924_109888.html

    The KIZ is ranked as a first-class institution within the Chinese Academy of Sciences (CAS) system and trains master’s and doctoral students. There are no undergraduate teaching responsibilities. Facilities at the KIZ include the latest next-gen sequencers, a zoological museum with over 600,000 specimens, and access to CAS field stations, datasets, and facilities around the country. Our websites are www.kiz.cas.cn and english.kiz.cas.cn. Labs will be located at the new Southwest China Biodiversity Institute, which was built to promote close interaction within Yunnan’s broader ecology and environment community, including the Kunming Institute of Botany, the Xishuangbanna Tropical Botanical Garden, Yunnan Agricultural University, and Yunnan University.

    The working languages at the KIZ are Chinese and English. All nationalities are welcome to apply, and most faculty have had international research experience. It is possible to conduct research outside China with grant monies from China. In addition to institutional support for Chinese national postgraduate students, the CAS has also recently made available very competitive CAS-TWAS President’s Fellowships to support Ph.D. candidates from developing countries.

    Candidates with a strong record of accomplishment should submit a CV, a statement of research interests and plans, and pdfs of three publications to the address below, with the Subject line "Ecology Job Search". Please include the names, addresses, and contact details of three individuals who can provide letters of recommendation. Informal enquiries can be made with Dr. Douglas Yu dougwyu@gmail.com.
