Postdoctoral fellows contribute richly to our program’s success as researchers onsite in East Asia and at partner institutions in East Asian, North America and Europe. They also help meet our overall goals and specific objectives by assuming some supervisory responsibilities for undergraduate and graduate students. In addition to regular, fully funded postdoctoral fellowships, we have proposed to collaborate with several world-leading universities to set up unique, joint postdoctoral positions that will enable the recipients to move freely between these universities, and to take full advantage of the resources and opportunities these different institutions provide for highly qualified personnel.
