PhD Research Visits


International students pursuing PhD degrees at other universities are welcome to conduct research and study visits at the University of Tartu for a period of 1-10 months in any of the accredited PhD programmes regardless of speciality. Short-term research grants Grants are made available by the Estonian Ministry of Education and Science to cover study/research visits for a period of 1-10 months.

Eligibility requirements
1. 2. 3. The candidate must reside in a country other than Estonia and be enrolled in a doctoral programme at an accredited university in his/her country. The candidate must not be enrolled as a student at a university in Estonia at the time of application. The candidate must resume studies in the home country at the end of the grant period.

Application process You should start from finding a supervisor at the UT, as the main responsibility regarding your research period and the application for funding lies with your UT supervisor. If you already have contacts at the respective institute/department, contact them to introduce your research topic and discuss supervision. You can also have a look at guidelines on finding a supervisor. Once you have found a supervisor at the UT, contact Merike Kala (merike.kala@ut.ee) for further information on the application process and the required documents. Application deadline As the quota allocated to the UT in the academic year 2013/2014 is limited, applications are no longer reviewed each month. The current application deadline is 31 October 2013 (for research periods starting in the 1st half of 2014). The next one will most probably be in May 2014. Grant coverage The grants will be issued to the host university, including: a monthly grant (ca. 400 EUR/month) for the duration of the research visit; a travel grant for one return trip from the students home country to Estonia; a grant to cover the cost of the health insurance for the period of research visit in Estonia; and the fee payable for the residence permit application. The student will

receive a supplementary relocation allowance for the duration of student's stay at the university (for rental and additional travel costs). For more information about the scholarship, see Activity 5 of the ESF DoRa Programme.

Sandwich PhD candidates and the Sandwhich Fellowship


Sandwich PhD candidates are international PhD candidates who only spend part of their time at Wageningen University.
- Unfortunately, your cookie settings do not allow social media buttons to be displayed. - check your settings

Programme
As a sandwich PhD candidate you will spend the first six to eight months of your degree at Wageningen University. During this time you will expand your research proposal and follow a tailor-made education and training programme.

The next three years are spent conducting research in your home country under the supervision of a local supervisor. You will have regular contact with your supervisor in Wageningen via email. Sandwich PhD candidates often return to Wageningen for short visits, and a Wageningen University supervisor will sometimes visit the students home institute. After you have finished collecting all your data, you return to Wageningen to finish the PhD thesis, which should take you approximately six months. After your thesis defense, your local supervisor will come to Wageningen to act as co-promoter at your graduation ceremony.

Application
To apply for a sandwich PhD position, you can follow the steps outlined on the Application form. If you wish to apply for a sandwich PhD position, you will need to provide proof of commitment from your home institute in addition to the other documentation. Please bear in mind that the number of applications for sandwich PhD positions greatly exceed the number of available places. Only the best candidates with the most original and innovative research proposals will be selected.

Special Research Fund - Doctoral Scholarships for Candidates from Developing Countries
With support from its Special Research Fund (BOF), Ghent University wishes to support university research groups or research centres in developing countries in their aim to grow into excellent research centres by upgrading local academic personnel. Therefore Ghent University grants PhD scholarships to promising PhD students from developing countries who wish to carry out half of their PhD research at Ghent University and half in a university in a developing country. These grants take the form of a so called sandwich scholarship: the candidate obtains a scholarship for 24 months to work within a span of 48 months on an alternating basis on the PhD at Ghent University and at the university or research centre in a developing country. Only for the periods the scholarship holder works at Ghent University the scholarship holder will receive a monthly income. The rest of the PhD research is done in the partner university, for which no funding is provided through this scholarship. For this part of the PhD research students must prove that they will be financed at their home university (e.g. local scholarship or salary). No restrictions are imposed on the field of research, nevertheless preference will be given to topics that are relevant for development. Relevance for development measures the degree in which the action of development corresponds with the expectations of the beneficiaries, the needs of the country, global priorities and the policies of partners and donors. The proposals must be submitted by a candidate, a promoter at Ghent University and a supervisor at the local institution. Before applying students need to find a professor from Ghent University who is willing to act as the supervisor ('promoter') of their doctoral research and who agrees to support their application. The best way to do this is by browsing the list of faculties and research topics available on our research directory.

Duration
The candidate obtains a scholarship for 24 months which must be divided into several periods within a span of 4 years.

Students are obliged to divide the scholarship into minimum 2 different research stays in Ghent and need to return at least once to their home university for 1 long research stay in between (=sandwich- schedule). Due to all practical arrangements (visa, housing, contract, ) students are advised to stay for long periods in Ghent (e.g. 1 year).

Who can apply?

To be admissible for this call, all of the following requirements must be met:

Candidates need to come from and have the nationality of a developing country (see country list(PDF)); There must be a guarantee that the candidate will be able to work on the PhD project at the partner university in a selected developing country. This implies that there must be a local PhD supervisor at the partner university or research center. Also a written statement is requested from that supervisor or the university authorities stating that the candidate is either a student or a staff member of this university and will be sufficiently exempted from teaching or other assignments as to be able to fully concentrate on the PhD research. This statement should also mention that the candidate receives/received a local scholarship or salary when working on the PhD in the home institute.

How does it work


The candidate applies to Ghent University jointly with a promoter of Ghent University and a supervisor at the local institution. The promoter at Ghent University has to fill in a separate document ('promoter's advice'- only available in Dutch) with advice on the candidate, stating the promoter's opinion on the potential of the candidate as a future researcher. The Research Council makes a selection of the applications based in part on the recommendations obtained from members of the Council for Development Cooperation. The recommendation is based on:

the qualifications of the applicant; the doctoral project; the relevance of the research topic for development; the scientific/scholarly potential of the promoters research group(s); the partnership between Ghent University and the local institute; the scientific/scholarly potential of the local institute.

How much funding is involved


The candidate receives a "sandwich"type scholarship for a total of 24 months. Within a span of 48 months, the candidate needs to work on the PhD project both at Ghent University and the partner university. Only for the periods the scholarship holder works at Ghent University the scholarship holder will receive a monthly income. The rest of the PhD research is done in the partner university for which no funding is provided through this scholarship. The partner university has to provide a salary or local scholarship for the period the candidate works there. The value of the scholarship at Ghent University depends on, a.o., the researchers family situation and is approximately 1.830. The Ghent University promoter also receives a bench fee of 15.440 to cover (part of) the operational costs, as well as the travelling costs of the student and both the Ghent University and the local promoter.

United Kingdom | Email a friend | Back University College London Listed 3 months ago Studentship Description The use of high-strength, yet lightweight, materials to reduce weight without compromising on cost, performance or safety is becoming increasingly common in the civil, mechanical and defence sectors. Innovative lightweight materials and lightweight construction technologies are finding applications in transportation, buildings and construction, body armour and protection systems, mechanical components, sports and leisure goods, and packaging. This is typically achieved through a reduction in mass of the material used or the reduction in the weight of the final structure by employing novel design techniques or combinations of lightweight materials and/or hollow or sandwich structures. The need to balance reduced material mass with structural integrity (SI), in particular for applications in harsh environments and/or under extreme loading conditions, poses new and unique sets of challenges for researchers involved in SI research. The focus of this project will be on developing advanced lightweight materials and structures technology to enable lightweight systems to better resist extreme (blast and impact) loadings for applications in ships. The work would involve theoretical modelling, numerical simulations (finite element), and applying inverse techniques to optimise microstructure and macroscopic properties of sandwich construction for spall debris containment.
