Professor Beomjun Choi of the Department of Mathematics at POSTECH was recently selected as the recipient of the POSCO Science Fellowship.

Professor Beomjun Choi received his Ph.D. from Columbia University in 2019 and worked as a postdoctoral research fellow at University of Toronto and a CMC fellow at Korea Institute for Advanced Study (KIAS) before being appointed as an assistant professor of mathematics at POSTECH in July 2021.

Professor Choi was selected as a POSCO Science Fellow in recognition for the originality and potentiality of his study on geometric analysis based on differential geometry and partial differential equation (PDE).

The POSCO Science Fellowship is a grant from the POSCO TJ Park Foundation that annually selects and funds 30 young, competent postdoctoral researchers and newly appointed professors in the field of basic and applied science. The goal of the program is to support Korean researchers to become world leading scientists in the future.

POSCO TJ Park Foundation grants up to 100 million won (USD 100,000) over two years to researchers who study basic sciences (mathematics, physics, chemistry, and life sciences) and applied sciences (metals, new materials, energy materials) at universities and research institutes throughout Korea.
