The IBS Center for Geometry and Physics (IBS-CGP) invites applications for one IBS Young Scientist position from young mathematicians of under five years of research experience (after Ph.D.) in the areas of geometry and mathematical physics.

IBS-CGP is located on the campus of Pohang University of Science and Technology (POSTECH) in Pohang, South Korea and is working to bring the world’s leading scientists in mathematics together with young researchers to collaborate on research projects with passion and commitment. IBS-CGP provides an open and autonomous research environment. The existing members of IBS-CGP are working on symplectic geometry and topology, dynamical systems, mirror symmetry, algebraic geometry, and mathematical aspects of quantum field and string theory.

Successful YS candidate will be affiliated to IBS-CGP and will receive annual research funding of up to KRW 300 million to organize an independent research group. The YS appointment is initially for three years and may be extended for another two years after successful evaluation in the third year.
