China-Chile Postdoctoral Fellowship in Astronomy and Astrophysics 2013

The China-Chile Joint Center for Astronomy (CCJCA) is a new initiative by the Chinese Academy of Sciences (CAS) and CONICYT of Chile to promote mutual collaborations between the two countries. To provide support for young astronomers in their early stages of research career, a China-CONICYT Postdoctoral Fellowship opportunity will be initiated in 2014. Applications for a temporary implementation of this Fellowship in 2013 are now being solicited by CCJCA with the expectation to start the first round of selection before the 2014 launch. Qualified candidates must have their Ph.D. degree on or before the start of their fellowship, which can be anytime between now and March 2014. All areas of research in astronomy and astrophysics will be considered, but preferential considerations will be given to applicants with proposed research activities involving collaborations between the Chinese and Chilean astronomy communities. Alternatively, we encourage potential applicants to check out some of the on-going research programs that are listed [in this page] and contact the prospective sponsors accordingly. Continue reading
