The Helmholtz Association and the Office of China Postdoctoral Council, OCPC, are establishing a common exchange programme for Chinese postdocs. The young scientists will be researching at eight Helmholtz centres for two years before returning to China. HZB is also involved in the exchange programme, which runs from 2017 to 2021.

Two Chinese postdocs have recently started working at HZB, funded by a stipend from the programme. Dr. Junming Li is researching in the young investigator group “Materials and Interfaces for Stable Perovskite Solar Cells”. This group is headed by Dr. Antonio Abate, who is presently at Fuzhou University in China as a visiting professor. The second postdoc, Hongtao Yu, is working in the group of Prof. Dr. Yan Lu, an expert for colloid chemistry. Two more postdocs will be arriving at HZB at the beginning of 2018 in the scope of this exchange programme.

For their research stay, the postdocs are receiving a scholarship equally co-funded by the Chinese OCPC and the host centre. In total, 50 young researchers this year have received the opportunity to research at the Helmholtz centres under the supervision of experienced scientists, and to acquire valuable international experience.

The exchange programme between the Helmholtz Association and OCPC is the first of its kind on this scale. Previously, only very few young OCPC postdocs from China would be given the opportunity to research in another country. The postdoctoral exchange programme is intended to create a basis for long-term, sustainable cooperation between the two countries in science and education.

Helmholtz Centres involved:

FZJ (coordination), DESY, HZB, HZI, GFZ, GSI, KIT and HMGU

Also involved is the Helmholtz office in Beijing.
