질문 1. Should researchers resign from their current posts or projects upon appointment as a YSF?
답변

Yes. In principle, YSFs are required to conduct research full-time at IBS, thus secondment and joint employment are not allowed. Since 100 percent participation in their YSF project is required, successful candidates must resign from all other projects before starting their YSF project and they may not apply for non-IBS projects* during their YSF term. However, YSFs are allowed to apply for other projects during their YSF term only when the termination of their YSF project is confirmed.
* Non-IBS projects are defined as projects or activities funded by sources outside IBS.


질문 2. What is the work level of YSFs and how long will they be supported?
답변

For HQ and Campus Centers, selected candidates will be appointed as Young Scientist Fellows. Although YSFs are affiliated with their Center, they operate a separate account for their research budget. In the case of YSFs at Extramural Centers, it is a prerequisite to sign a separate employment contract with the host institution where their Center is located. Support will initially be provided for three years and may be extended for another two years depending on their performance review results. However, when IBS researchers are selected as YSFs of their Center, they can perform research for up to three years.

질문 3. If current IBS researchers are selected as recipients of the Fellowship, what would be the employment type and term?
답변

Current IBS researchers will be appointed as Young Scientist Fellows and receive support for up to three years.


질문 4. What is the size of a research fund allocated to a YSF?
답변

Depending on the research field, a YSF receives an annual fund ranging from KRW 150 to 300 million*, which includes the labor costs for the YSF and all members of his/her research group (e.g., researchers, technicians).

* In general, up to KRW 150 million for theoretical fields and up to KRW 300 million for experimental fields are provided. The characteristics of the research field (theoretical or experimental) will be examined during the interview and the size of a research fund will be decided by the IBS Research Review Committee.


질문 5. May I spend the research fund on constructing research equipment and facilities?
답변

YSFs should prioritize using the advanced research infrastructure of their Center in conducting research. Although they may construct research equipment and facilities within their budget, the construction scale and timing may be adjusted through review.


질문 6. How much salary will be paid to a YSF?
답변

An annual salary for a YSF is determined in accordance with the YSF pay band based on both his/her postdoctoral research experience and his/her year in the Fellowship. However, when IBS researchers are selected as YSFs of their Center, and their current salary is higher than the upper limit of the YSF pay band, it is allowed to maintain such researchers’ current salary but not allowed to give them a raise during the Fellowship term.

  The figures above do not include legally required IBS contributions for employees. Research allowances are not paid to YSFs.

  E.g., in the case of a YSF who commences research in September, 1st year salary will be paid until August of the following year, and then 2nd year salary will be paid from September.



질문 7. Have the research topics already been determined for the Fellowship?
답변

No. Applicants can propose any research topic in principle.


질문 8. How will the research groups of YSFs be organized?
답변

YSFs can organize and run a small research group within the given fund. Although YSFs can select their group members, final approval from their director is required for appointment and other personnel-related matters. However, YSFs of Extramural Centers should follow the regulations of their host institution in principle.


질문 9. How will the research space of YSFs be arranged?
답변

In principle, YSFs and their Center arrange research space within their Center through consultations.


질문 10. Where will YSFs work?
답변

YSFs should work at the Center to which they applied. Successful candidates from abroad should physically relocate to Korea before their appointment as a YSF.
