질문 1. What is the Young Scientist Fellowship?
답변

The IBS Young Scientist Fellowship is a program to foster the next generation of research leaders. The Fellowship supports junior researchers so that they can conduct independent research. Young Scientist Fellows (YSFs) are researchers who are selected for the Fellowship and run a small research group utilizing state of the art research infrastructure of IBS Research Centers.


질문 2. Who is eligible to apply for the Fellowship?
답변

Ph.D. holders with seven years or less postdoctoral research experience (degrees obtained no earlier than 1 January 2014) or under the age of 40 (born no earlier than 1 January 1981) are eligible to apply. Full-time university faculty members are not eligible to apply since the Fellowship is intended to serve as a stepping stone for young, promising scientists who have a potential to become a professor or a leading researcher at a major domestic or overseas university or research institute, respectively.


질문 3. Are current IBS researchers eligible to apply?
답변

Yes. Current IBS researchers who meet the above qualifications can apply. If they apply for the Fellowship of their Center, they need to obtain permission from their director. Such applicants are required to download the Acknowledgement of Application Submission form from the IBS website and submit it along with the letter of intent. This is not the case with IBS researchers who apply to other Centers. When IBS researchers are selected as YSFs of their Center, they can perform research for up to three years.


질문 4. I am currently a Ph.D. candidate. Do I have to be conferred with a Ph.D. degree before submitting a letter of intent?
답변

No. You can still submit a letter of intent if you will be conferred with a Ph.D. degree by 31 August 2021. In this case, you should clearly state the expected degree conferral date in the letter of intent.


질문 5. Is the Fellowship limited to basic science?
답변

No. Researchers from any field relevant to the hiring Centers can apply.


질문 6. Can only researchers in experimental field apply to experimental field Centers?
답변

No. Researchers in theoretical field can also apply to research Centers classified as experimental field such as Experimental Physics, Chemistry, Life sciences and Interdisciplinary. The characteristics of the research field (theoretical or experimental) will be examined during the in-depth interview. But if researcher in theoretical field is selected as YSF in experimental field centers, up to KRW 150 million will be provided.


질문 7. Can I contact the director concerned before applying for the Fellowship?
답변

Yes. In particular, when making a full research proposal, those who passed the 1st phase (letter of intent evaluation) need to contact the director of the Center of their choice and have discussions on organization and operation of a research group, use of research facilities/equipment and the like. Those who have applied to more than one Center in the letter of intent need to choose one when writing a full proposal.


질문 8. What factors are considered in the selection?
답변

Applicants will be comprehensively reviewed based on their capabilities as a researcher, excellence and appropriateness of their research proposal, collaboration potential with the Center and the like.
