Say Hello to Our New IAS Junior and Postdoctoral Fellows
We welcomed a highly diverse group of new Junior and Postdoctoral Fellows at our annual orientation session in October 2016. Attended by around 30 promising young scholars in a variety of academic fields from countries such as France, Iran, Korea, and Sweden, the orientation facilitated fruitful interactions among the participants and enhanced their understanding of the Institute. Each of the new fellows will work closely with one or more faculty members and contribute to HKUST's research efforts.
Dr Raymond Louie, lAS Junior Fellow, and Dr Jan Hajer and Dr Jonathan Regier, lAS Postdoctoral Fellows, shared their own lAS journeys and useful tips with the newcomers, including how to make successful grant applications and how to strategically expand their networks. Apart from the engaging stories and insider knowledge, the most valuable takeaway for the new fellows that day was definitely their blooming friendships with one another as new members of the lAS family.
