The YST program is for young physicists who are at an early stage of their
research career and provides the opportunity for the best early stage
post-doctoral researchers from all over the world for a period of up to two
years. All subject areas in theoretical physics are eligible. The APCTP offers YST fellows
an ideal environment for research and 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 at APCTP’s member and partner institutes.
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, some research expenses and part of relocation costs, KRW 3,000,000/year are
provided. The starting date is expected to be November. 1, 2018.
Please send the application
