The IBS Center for Geometry and Physics (IBS-CGP) invites applications for several postdoctoral research fellowship positions (position ID: PRF-R).

IBS-CGP is working to bring the world’s leading scientists in mathematics together with young researchers to collaborate on research projects with passion and commitment. To this end, IBS recruits based on scientific excellence and creative ideas, rather than pre-determined goals or demonstrated practical outcomes. IBS-CGP provides an open and autonomous research environment. The existing members of IBS-CGP are working in symplectic geometry and topology, dynamical systems, mirror symmetry, algebraic geometry, number theory, and mathematical aspects of quantum field and string theory.

The center is located on the campus of Pohang University of Science and Technology (POSTECH) in Pohang, South Korea.

Successful candidates for postdoctoral research fellowship positions will be new or recent Ph.D.’s with outstanding research potential. These non-tenure-track appointments are for two or three years, and the salary range is KRW 57,000,000 – 66,000,000 (approximately USD 51,800 – 60,000).

These are purely research positions and research fellows will have no teaching duties.

IBS-CGP offers annual travel funds of KRW 8,000,000 in addition to basic research equipment and comprehensive benefits including medical and travel insurance and retirement fund.

A complete application packet should include:

  1. Cover letter
  2. Curriculum vitae including a publication list
  3. Research statement
  4. At least 3 recommendations

For full consideration, applicants should submit items 1, 2, and 3 on the Apply page of the CGP website and have their recommendation letters sent to by November 15, 2015 for the first round of review and by January 31, 2016 for the second round. Recommendation letters forwarded by an applicant will not be considered valid.

Please write to should you have any question or concern.

IBS encourages applications from individuals of diverse backgrounds.
