China-CONICYT Postdoctoral Fellowship research topics 2016

We are looking to build a catalog of research programs to guide applicants to the China-CONICYT Joint Postdoc Fellowship. Potential research projects for postdocs may be proposed by astronomers from either Chinese or Chilean institutions willing to be the host. These can be in any area of astronomical research, including observation, instrumental development, and theory, but must involve China-Chile collaboration.  If those topics listed here are not interesting or relevant to any applicants, they may establish any China-Chile collaborative research topics on their own with their two potential supervisors.

Below listed the research programs submitted for the 2016 China-CONICYT Postdoctoral fellowship, and more is coming. If you unfortunately find your submitted research topic missing from the list, please write to Wei Wang at
