Announcement for Young Indian Scientists

(for three RACIRI 2017 scholarships enabled within the framework of the India@DESY Collaboration)


RACIRI Summer Schools

The RACIRI Summer Schools are jointly organized by DESY in Germany, the NRC “Kurchatov Institute” in the Russian Federation and the Swedish Research Council in Sweden. The summer schools offer a unique training program and stimulating learning environment for young researchers in materials science in close connection to research at large-scale x-ray and neutron sources. The school will mainly address PhD students, master (diploma) students in their final research year, and young postdoctoral researchers mainly from institutions of the three partner countries.

It is one of the main goals of RACIRI Summer Schools to strengthen the scientific knowledge base of the next generation of researchers in advanced materials design and to contribute to the necessary interdisciplinary literacy in relevant scientific fields and disciplines. The program structure, lectures and topics are designed to improve the fundamental understanding rather than focusing on plain experimental methods and techniques.

Within the framework of the India@DESY collaboration we offer three RACIRI 2017 scholarships for outstanding young Indian scientists.



Three RACIRI 2017 Scholarships: Application and Participation

The three RACIRI 2017 scholarships for young Indian researchers consist of full accommodation, lodging and meals during the RACIRI Summer School 2017. We expect the successful candidates to be excellently qualified senior master students in the final phase of their study programme (master/diploma), or PhD students with proven academic background and necessary qualifications, or young scientists (Postdocs). Students and young scientists from India wishing to participate must first apply at the Jawaharlal Nehru Centre for Advanced Scientific Research (JNCASR) and will then be nominated by a committee (based on their academic accomplishment, research and education experience, and with careful consideration of gender balance).

Applicants are requested to electronically submit:

o   a CV

o   a one-page motivation letter explaining why he/she would like to participate and how this might benefit his/her ongoing or planned research

o   two reference letters.

All documents should be submitted by 15 March 2017 to and  Please be advised to submit your application as soon as possible.

Successful applicants will then receive an invitation to attend the RACIRI Summer School 2017.
