Updated on Jan. 3, 2024

1. ORD Grant:Please fill in the latest file below

2. ORD Grant:Consider the overall use of funds, if no quota of postdoctoral research fellow has been granted in the applicant’s list of approved NSTC research projects, the applicant submit a rolling application to the NSTC first. The applicant can then provide relevant documents of proof and submit an application to the Office of Research and Development (ORD).

Eligibility

Regular members of NTU full-time faculty and research fellows

A. Applicants: Regular NTU faculty members and research fellows are eligible to apply.

1. An applicant shall have an ongoing or soon-to-begin research project funded by the National Science and Technology Council (NSTC).

(1) The applicant must provide the list of approved NSTC research projects, which may be general intradisciplinary research projects or interdisciplinary competitive projects (e.g. projects under the Academic Summit Program or other interdisciplinary programs). Planning and promotion projects, international cooperation projects, and industrial-academic cooperation projects are not included.

(2) Should the applicant have already been granted a quota of postdoctoral research fellows approved by the NSTC (including those approved in research projects or postdoctoral research fellow recruitment), this quota shall be used first, and relevant documents of proof shall be provided. After the NSTC quota is fulfilled, the applicant can then submit an application for NTU’s quota of postdoctoral research fellows.

(3) Should a total of two or more postdoctoral research fellows have been hired with the applicant’s research funding for different projects, and the applicant intends to apply for another postdoctoral research fellow, the standards of external reviews for both the applicant and the candidate will be raised, with an emphasis on whether the hiring will be beneficial for advancing new research domains.

(4) If no quota of postdoctoral research fellow has been granted in the applicant’s list of approved NSTC research projects, the applicant submit a rolling application to the NSTC first. The applicant can then provide relevant documents of proof and submit an application to the Office of Research and Development (ORD).

2. For renewal applications, the applicant must conduct NSTC research projects.

B. Candidates: postdoctoral research fellows to be recruited.

1. A candidate must have published at least one paper as the first author or a corresponding author in the past five years. The candidate’s years after receiving a doctoral degree, as well as the quality and quantity of publications will be considered for the review.

2. The candidate is a graduate of the current year whose advisor is the applicant

This stipulation is intended to facilitate the completion of the candidate’s doctoral dissertation and enhance the quality of the research work. Therefore, a graduate of the current year is defined as a student who has passed the dissertation oral exam but has not completed the graduation procedure. If the candidate has officially graduated, the application shall be evaluated by the review committee for compliance with the purpose of this stipulation.

3. In principle, a renewal application is evaluated based on the candidate’s research progress in the previous year and whether the applicant is currently conducting NSTC research projects.

4. In an exceptional case, such as a switch of the research area, or difficulty of translating a research topic on technological development into a dissertation, the candidate may provide concrete explanation with documents of proof for alternative consideration.

Application Dates and Deadlines:

Rolling application

  • The employment period for postdoctoral research fellows is one year and may be renewed annually.
  • Postdoctoral research fellows who are foreign nationals may be reimbursed for a one-way flight ticket. Reappointed research fellows are not eligible for reimbursement.
  • Postdoctoral research fellows with outstanding performance may be subsequently hired as teaching and research personnel for other projects.
