질문 1-1. What are the required qualifications to apply for the Young Scientist Fellowship?
답변

A. Ph.D. holders with five years or less post-doctoral research experience or under the age of 40 (born no earlier than January 1, 1977) are eligible to apply. Full-time university faculty members are not eligible to apply as the fellowship is intended to serve as a stepping stone for young, promising scientists who could grow into professors or independent principal investigators at major universities and research institutes. Also, the current IBS employees are not eligible to apply.


질문 1-2. I am currently a Ph.D. candidate. Must I be conferred with a Ph.D. degree before submitting a letter of intent?
답변 A. You can still submit a letter of intent if you will be conferred with a Ph.D. degree by August 31, 2017. In this case, you should clearly state in the letter of intent the expected degree conferral date.

질문 1-3. Can I apply for a Center which already has a YSF or YS/SS?
답변 A. Yes. Though the principle in operating the Young Scientist Fellowship is that one IBS Center can have no more than one YSF, two or more YSFs are allowed with approval from the IBS President. Also, as the YSF is a separate program from the existing YS/SS program, researchers can apply for the Center of their choice regardless of the presence of YS/SS.
질문 1-4. Should researchers currently working in an IBS Center resign their posts in order to apply for the Young Scientist Fellowship?
답변

A. Only the researchers who are not working in the IBS Center by the time they submit a letter of intent are permitted to apply for the Young Scientist Fellowship. However, re-employment is not guaranteed if they are not selected as final YSFs.


질문 2-1. What is the selection procedure for the Young Scientist Fellowship?
답변

A. The YSF selection procedure is divided into three phases: 1. Letter of Intent Review; 2. Research Proposal Evaluation; 3. Interview & Comprehensive Evaluation. Only the candidates who pass the previous phase will be invited for the next phase. (In 2016, a total of 134 letters of intent were received and 13 candidates were interviewed.)


질문 2-2. What factors are considered in the selection of YSF?
답변

A. Most importantly, candidates will be reviewed based on the originality and creativity of their proposed research. Other factors include whether the proposed research will produce synergistic effects in regards to the research of the IBS Center and whether the candidates have potential to grow into capable, independent researchers.


질문 2-3. Is the Young Scientist Fellowship limited to basic science?
답변 A. No. Researchers from any field can apply.
질문 2-4. Have the research topics already been determined for the Young Scientist Fellowship?
답변 A. No. In principle, applicants can propose any research topic.
질문 2-5. How many researchers will be selected for the Young Scientist Fellowship in 2017?
답변

A. It depends on the capabilities of the applicants and the circumstances of IBS but about five YSFs are planned to be selected in 2017. (In 2016, seven YSFs were selected.)


질문 3-1. What is the size of a research budget allocated to a YSF?
답변

A. The size of an annual budget allocated to a YSF is between KRW 150 million to KRW 300 million*, depending on his/ her research field. This includes the labor costs for the YSF and all members of the Young Scientist Fellowship research group (e.g., research personnel or technicians, etc.).

* In general, up to KRW 300 million for experimental fields / between KRW 150 million and KRW 200 million for theoretical fields
