The Chinese Academy of Sciences (CAS) and the Comisión Nacional de Investigación Científica y Tecnológica (CONICYT) of Chile have decided to promote mutual collaborations in astronomical research between the two countries. To provide support for young astronomers in their early stages of research career, a China-CONICYT Postdoctoral Fellowship program has been initiated since 2013, with four finalists selected and awarded the Fellowship in its first year. The 2014 implementation of this Fellowship will start soon in the form of a call issued by CONICYT. Qualified candidates must have assurance to obtain their Ph.D. degree before the start of the Fellowship (expected by mid-2015). Preferential considerations will be given to those applicants with proposed research activities involving collaborations between the Chinese and Chilean astronomy communities. Potential applicants should check out the web sites www.conicyt.cl and www.cassaca.org for more up-to-date information on this opportunity in the coming months and may contact prospective sponsors accordingly before applying.
Further inquires about this fellowship opportunity can be addressed to Dr. Jiasheng Huang, Chief Scientist of CASSACA (the CAS South America Center for Astronomy) at firstname.lastname@example.org. (PDF: CC_postdoc_ad_2014 ).
