TIGP invites outstanding young scholars from around the globe to experience Taiwan’s top-notch scientific research facilities and to participate in build an intellectual network of people from different ethnic and cultural backgrounds.
In 2002, Dr. Sunney I. Chan, former Vice President of Academia Sinica, with the support of former Academia Sinica President Dr. Yuan Tseh Lee, and former Minister of Education Dr. Ovid J.-L. Tzeng sowed the first seeds of the TIGP program in Academia Sinica.The program was established to cultivate interdisciplinary research, and enhance Taiwan’s visibility in the world’s academic arena.
About the Internship:
This program typically takes place during July and August. However the dates can be changed by the host PI upon request. Ideally, the qualified intern will be hosted by the PI of his or her choice. At the end of the internship, interns are required to submit a report and/or give a presentation about their research projects. Upon completion of each intern’s project, an evaluation report will be filed by the host scientist, which may later serve as a supportive document towards application for admission to TIGP.There are 12 programs offered by TIGP Internship:Chemical Biology and Molecular BiophysicsMolecular Science and TechnologyMolecular and Biological Agricultural SciencesBioinformaticsMolecular and Cell BiologyNano Science and TechnologyMolecular MedicineEarth System ScienceBiodiversityInterdisciplinary NeuroscienceSustainable Chemical Science and TechnologySocial Networks and Human-Centered Computing
