 KOPRI Asian Polar Science Fellowship Program 2016

 

Korea Polar Research Institute (KOPRI) is a rapidly growing polar research institute of the Republic of Korea, being responsible for the national polar program and an advocate of international cooperation.

KOPRI initiated the Asian Polar Science Fellowship Program in 2015 in an effort to promote Asian research collaboration, making use of its expanding infrastructure and capacity and also to provide future generation polar researchers with networking opportunities.

 

The Asian Polar Science Fellowship Program consists of two elements: Institute Visiting Program and Field Research Program. Travel (round-trip airfare), accommodation, and staying expenses are covered in both programs.

- Institute Visiting Program offers office and/or laboratory support arranged with the collaborative KOPRI research group.

- Field Research Program offers logistics support during the use of KOPRI research platform (Research Vessel ARAON or Arctic/Antarctic Research Stations).

 

Fellowships are granted to early career polar scientists and established polar scientists for up to three months within this year (2016):

- Early career polar scientists are scientists and scholars from Asian countries whom are master/doctoral graduate students or have received their master/doctoral degree within the past 5 years (2011-2015).

- Established polar scientists are scientists and scholars from Asian countries whom have received their doctoral degree before 2011.

 

The Asian Polar Science Fellowship Program applicants are highly encouraged to discuss with KOPRI staff scientists before they write and submit a proposal and KOPRI’s international cooperation department is willing to assist in this process.

 

The following documents are needed for application: The Asian Polar Science Fellowship Program Application form/document, Research Proposal, Home Institute Agreement, and Letter of recommendation (for early career scientist applicants only).

- Application documents are to be submitted by e-mail until March 31st, 2016.

- Fellowship awardee announcement will be made in mid-April, 2016 by e-mail.

 

Commence details (specific dates) for the fellowship awardees are to be adjusted with the cooperating KOPRI staff scientist and informed to the international cooperation department for further traveling, accommodation details.
