Chinese Academy of Sciences: International Fellowship for Visiting Scientists 2018

The Chinese Academy of Sciences invites applications for its president’s international fellowship initiative for visiting scientists. This enables leading international scientists to carry out cooperative projects at CAS-affiliated institutions for one to 12 months. The aim is to create or strengthen partnerships between CAS host institutions and the recipients’ home institutions.


The fellowship provides a monthly stipend to cover living expenses, health insurance in China, and economy-class round-trip international travel.

Monthly stipends are worth CNY 40,000 (approx. AUD $8,200) for full professors or equivalent, CNY 30,000 (approx. AUD $6,200) for associate professors or equivalent, CNY 20,000 (approx. AUD $4,100) for assistant professors or equivalent.


Applicants must have:

  • an academic title of at least assistant professor or equivalent;
  • a record of outstanding scientific accomplishment;
  • five years’ work experience in a well-known university, research institution or multinational corporation;
  • a collaborative research proposal prepared in cooperation with the CAS host institution.
