Dr. Franco Kin Chung AU, currently working in Prof. Robert Qi‘s lab at LIFS, is the awardee of the Research Grants Council (RGC) Postdoctoral Fellowship Scheme (PDFS) 2020/21.
Starting from 2020/21, the HKSAR Government has reserved recurrent funding for the RGC’s PDFS on a regular yearly basis to support promising young research talent in building up research and development (R&D) careers in Hong Kong. PDFS will provide support to 50 awardees for 36 months of full-time appointment as postdoctoral fellows at the Unversity Grants Committee (UGC)-funded universities. Similar to the Hong Kong PhD Fellowship Scheme, PDFS covers all academic disciplines and are grouped into two streams: (i) Science, Medicine, Engineering and Technology; and (ii) Humanities, Social Sciences and Business Studies.
