KIAA-UWA Joint Postdoctoral Fellowship Program on Radio Astronomy Approved by CSC


A proposal for the KIAA-UWA (University of Western Australia) Joint Postdoctoral Fellowship Program on radio astronomy was formally approved by the Chinese Scholarship Council (CSC) on January 4, 2017. 


KIAA and the International Center of Radio Astronomy Research (ICRAR), an unincorporated joint venture between Curtin University and the University of Western Australia, signed a memorandum of understanding in October 2016, intending to collaborate and form a jointly funded postdoctoral fellowship program to begin in 2017, by awarding two fellowship positions annually.  The objectives of the program are to support excellent basic and applied research by early-career researchers; to advance promising early-career researchers and promote enhanced opportunities for diverse career pathways; and to enable research and research training in high-quality and supportive environments. 


The program was supported by CSC as one of the Initiative Talents International Collaboration Training Programs ( 创新型人才国际合作培养项目 ) in 2017.
