Young Scientist Training Program(YST) 2019-2
The Asia Pacific Center for
Theoretical Physics (APCTP) opens a few positions for the Young
Scientist Training program at the postdoctoral fellow level in theoretical
physics and related fields. The APCTP
(https://www.apctp.org), founded in 1996, is a non-governmental organization
aiming for an international center dedicated to excellence in research and the
training of young scientists in the Asia-Pacific region.
JOB DESCRIPTION & ELIGIBILITY
The YST program aims to
provide career development opportunities for young physicists who are at an
early stage of their research career but with a proven record of research. It
is anticipated that this fellowship can lead to a more permanent academic
position. All subject areas in theoretical physics are eligible. YST
fellowships will be held at the APCTP, Pohang, Korea, where an ideal
environment for research is provided for potential collaborations with in-house
senior academics (Junior Research Groups), POSTECH faculty & members,
visiting scholars from Korea and abroad, and participants of various scientific
programs organized at the APCTP or supported by the APCTP. Please
note that in order to apply for a work visa of Korea, an applicant should have
a doctoral degree (PhD or Dsc, etc.) before the end of April 2019.
Funding is initially available
for one year, renewable for a second year depending on the research performance
and the availability of resources for the program. An annual salary, including
severance pay, is in the range KRW 32,500,000 to KRW 40,000,000 depending on
research experience and qualification. In addition to the salary, research expenses,
KRW 3,000,000/year along with part of relocation costs are provided.
The starting date is expected to be August 1, 2019 but is negotiable.
You should apply by sending the application form which can be downloaded
at the APCTP website (https://www.apctp.org/myboard/write.php?id=13&Board=popup) via email by March 31, 2019 (UTC +09:00). You must submit with your
a curriculum vitae;
a short description of research accomplishments with a publication list;
a statement of proposed work;
two letters of recommendation, arranged
to be sent directly from the referees by the same deadline.
NOTE: Each document submitted
for items 1 to 4 above must be in English, and the first 3 should be combined
in a single PDF file, unsigned and not encrypted.
