The Institute of Molecular Biology at Academia Sinica provides an active and stimulating research environment, is well supported by both extramural and long-term intramural funding, and features several core facilities (imaging, microarray, Next Generation Sequencing, RNAi, electrophysiology, FACS, bioinformatics and mouse facilities) that provide state-of-the-art resources and key technical expertise to the Institute’s research community. Recent research works were published in top journals such as Science, Nature, and Cell. Currently three Ph.D. programs, with one recruiting international students, are formally affiliated with the Institute. English is the official language for regular seminars and most of the lectures at the Institute, and proficiency in Chinese language is not a prerequisite for application.
