The aim of the AONSA Young Research Fellowship Program is to support highly talented young scientists in the Asia-Oceania region and help them to develop their expertise and career in neutron science and technology.
The Program will provide financial support for Fellows to visit major neutron facilities in the region for collaborative research using neutrons.
The hosting Neutron Facilities in 2017 are J-PARC (Japan), OPAL at ANSTO (Australia), and HANARO at KAERI (Korea).
Funding & Duration
The duration of the Fellowship visit shall be 3 to 12 months depending on his/her needs and resources available.
The Fellowship consists of a certificate of Fellowship award, one round-trip airfare between his/her home institute and the hosting facility, and local living expense at the hosting facility.
The amount of support for local living expenses shall be determined based on the nominal cost of living and funding resources available.
At least one staff member shall be assigned by the hosting facility to the Fellow as a collaborator and mentor.
Any young scientist in the Asia-Oceania region within 8 years of the completion of their PhD, and who wishes to perform neutron research at major neutron facilities in the region (but not in his/her home country), can apply.
Recipients can receive the Fellowship only once.
