APCTP Young Scientist Training Program


at the Postdoctoral Fellow Level

The Asia Pacific Center for Theoretical Physics (APCTP) solicits applications for a few positions for the Young Scientist Training Program at the postdoctoral fellow level in theoretical physics and other related fields. APCTP, first 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. Applicants are expected to have demonstrated exceptional research potential, with significant contributions beyond or through the doctoral dissertation. Applications would be encouraged if your field could cooperate with Junior Research Group which APCTP launched in 2008.


The range of the annual stipend is from KRW24,000,000 to KRW36,000,000 (Korean won) depending on the research experience and qualification. Some funds for travel and research activities are provided if selected. The initial appointment is for one year, which is renewable up to one or two additional years, depending on the research performance and the availability of resources for the program. The new position typically commences on September 1st each year, with the application deadline of January 8, 2012. However, applications and appointments can also be made all year round on a continual basis, if requested and allowed.

Applicants should send a curriculum vita with a list of publications, a summary of research plans at APCTP, and at least two letters of recommendations to:
