APEC Young Scientist Training Program
The Asia Pacific Center for Theoretical Physics (APCTP) solicits applications for a few positions for the Asia-Pacific Economic Cooperation Young Scientist Training (APEC YST) program at the postdoctoral fellow level in theoretical physics and related fields. The APCTP is an international non-governmental organization for research excellence and collaboration platform in the Asia-Pacific region.
The APEC YST program will enable talented early career post-doctoral fellows from the APEC member economies to spend up to three years to do research at APCTP. All subject areas in theoretical physics are eligible. The Center offers the APEC YST fellows an ideal environment for research and potential collaborations with the in-house Junior Research Groups, POSTECH faculty, visiting scholars from Korea and abroad, and participants of various scientific programs organized at the Center or in member countries/institutes.
The initial offer is for one year and is renewable up to two more years, depending on the research performance and the availability of resources for the program. Joint appointments between APCTP and other institutes like the POSTECH physics department are possible if both applicants and participating institutes are in agreement. The annual stipend including the severance pay is from KRW 32,500,000 to 40,000,000 depending on research experience and qualification. In addition to the salary, some research funding and partial relocation costs are provided. The starting date is expected to be Sep. 1, 2016, but may be negotiated to be earlier or later by a few months.
Applications from the APEC member economies are invited for the APEC YST postdoctoral positions. To apply, please send your CV, a publication list and a short description of your research accomplishments and future plans to email@example.com by December 13, 2015 (Sun). Two letters of recommendation should be arranged to be sent directly from the references to the above email address by the application deadline. Applications received after the due date will be considered as well until the positions are filled.
