The Centre for International Mobility CIMO invites applications from Russian and Ukrainian postgraduate students for participation in the 19th Winter School organized during 2 - 7 March 2015 at Tvärminne zoological station of the University of Helsinki.
The goal of the Winter School is to enhance the mobility of young researchers and postgraduate students between Finland and the participating countries and to increase the cooperation between the universities. Before applying for participation in the 19th Winter School, the applicants are expected to contact one or more scientists/research group leaders at Finnish universities to discuss a possible project with them. Expression of interest by the Finnish host will be considered an advantage during the selection process.
Those Winter School participants who will be invited to Finland after the Winter School by Finnish research teams will be offered a scholarship from the CIMO Fellowship programme. The invited participants of the Winter School will be expected to come to work or study in Finland for 3 to 18 months. The monthly amount of scholarship will be 1500 euro in 2015. The scholarship period should begin approx. within two years after the Winter School.
The 19th CIMO Winter School is multidisciplinary - not for a particular, narrow field of science, but rather for a scientific topic. This time, the school focuses on biological chemistry, structural biology, evolution and brain functions.
Applications from related fields, such as chemistry and biology, nanoscience,bioenergetics, biophysics, molecular and cell biology, physiology, cellular imaging, neuroscience, psychology and medicine are welcome.
The school tends to stimulate active participation and discussion. The untraditional working method has been specially developed for the Winter School and it aims at enhancing the strength of participants’ own personal expertise, problem-solving capabilities, scientific presentation skills and creative mind.
Tentative themes of the days:
Chemistry of life
Methods in neuroscience
Development and evolution
Applications for participation
Written applications for participation are welcome from Russian and Ukrainian postgraduate students. The applicants must be citizens of Russia or Ukraine and not over 35 years of age. Applications are not accepted from those who have participated in one of the previous Winter Schools.
