Institute for Basic Science (IBS) calls applications for IBS Young Scientist Fellowship. With the vision of “Making discoveries for humanity and society,” the Institute for Basic Science (IBS) was founded in 2011 by the Korean government to promote basic science in Korea. To date, IBS has 31 Research Centers and each Center has been yielding outstanding results in various research fields.

The IBS Young Scientist Fellowship started in 2016 to play an active role in fostering the next generation of basic science leaders. IBS believes this Fellowship offers junior scientists opportunities to conduct independent research by utilizing state-of-the-art infrastructure and to grow on the basis of research collaborations with leading researchers. The Fellowship serves as a stepping stone for our researchers to mature into leading researchers in basic science.

The IBS Young Scientist Fellowship is a program to foster the next generation of research leaders. The Fellowship supports junior researchers so that they can conduct independent research. Young Scientist Fellows (YSFs) are researchers who are selected for the Fellowship and run a small research group utilizing state of the art research infrastructure of IBS Research Centers.
