The Center for Artificial Intelligence and Natural Sciences
The Center for Artificial Intelligence and Natural Sciences at Korea Institute for Advanced Study (KIAS) invites applicants with a Ph.D. in Mathematics, Applied Math, Physics, Chemistry, Neuroscience, Biology, Information Science and related fields including Engineering and Computer Science.
The candidates are required to have doctorate degrees in the relevant fields for which application of AI to basic science is appropriate or even necessary: Theoretical Machine Learning, High-dimensional computational geometry, Statistical Learning Theory/Statistical Inference, Information geometry and Application of AI to basic science (High energy physics, Cosmology, Statistical Physics, Materials Science, Chemical/Biological Sciences, Brain science/Neuroscience, etc.)
Applicants are expected to have demonstrated exceptional research potential, including major contributions after or through the doctoral dissertation.
In case of AI Fellow, the annual salary will be decided in the vicinity of 60,000,000 Korean Won(approximately US$53,100 currency exchange rate) and 70,000,000 Korean Won depending on project funding. However, it might be adjusted for particularly excellent applicants. An individual research grant of 15,000,000 Korean Won and a welfare card will be provided each year.
In case of AI Research Fellow, the annual salary starts from 48,500,000 Korean Won (approximately US$43,000 at current exchange rate); an individual research grant of 10,000,000 Korean Won and a welfare card will be provided each year.
Korea Institute for Advanced Study (KIAS) was founded in 1996 by Korean Government to promote research excellence in the basic sciences. KIAS is located on a 120,000 square-meter site in Seoul, where its members are provided with a research-friendly environment. As a flagship of the basic sciences in the region, KIAS provides a venue for advanced learning and active discovery of new ideas. Through these efforts, the Institute ultimately aims to contribute to advancement of our civilization.
KIAS is an arena for dynamic scientific interactions. Scientists from all over the world visit KIAS for collaborative research, sabbatical leave, and undertake various research activities. In pursuit of fulfilling its mission, KIAS also hosts numerous meetings, seminars, workshops, and seasonal schools. The faculty and research bodies of the Institute are composed of diverse nationalities, and endeavor to explore the frontier of knowledge and insights on Nature and its structure. KIAS, aspiring to be a world-class hub of research activity, welcomes opportunities of interaction with research communities around the world.
