Young Scientist Postdoc Training Program

The Asia Pacific Center for Theoretical Physics (APCTP) opened positions for the Young Scientist Training program at the postdoctoral fellow level in theoretical physics and related fields. The APCTP founded in 1996, is a non-governmental organization aiming 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, POSTECH faculty & members, visiting scholars from Korea and abroad, and participants of various scientific programs organized or supported by the APCTP. 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 gross salary is KRW 36,000,000 (approx. US$ 31,000) and addition to the salary, research grant of KRW 5,000,000/year (approx. US$4,000) along with relocation costs are provided. The starting date is expected to be 1 March 2021.

The deadline is on 2 November 2020.
