Please fill in the form below. In addition please send your CV per e-mail to info (at) ukrainet.eu by the application closing date: 20 May 2019. Finalists (up to 6) will be informed by the end of June 2019.
The Final will be carried out on Thursday, 19 September 2019 in Tübingen, Germany. The finalists will be invited to give a short 5-minute presentation about their research. The Final will be organized within the framework of the Days of Ukraine in Baden-Württemberg (19-20 September) and alongside of the Annual meeting of the German-Ukrainian Academic Society.
PhD students (MD students are also eligible) carrying out their research in any subject are eligible to apply for participation in the Contest. In particular we invite PhD students from one or more following groups to apply:
- Ukrainian PhD students carrying out their research outside of Ukraine (incl. exchange PhD students);
- PhD students, regardless of nationality, who are involved in a collaborative (e.g. German-Ukrainian or multi-lateral, including Ukraine) research project;
- PhD students, regardless of nationality, whose topic of research relates to Ukraine.
Please note: only those PhD students whose PhD defence/viva is planned after the PhD Contest Final date (19 September 2019) can be considered (i.e. candidates who have already defended or are expected to defend their PhD thesis prior to the PhD Contest Final are not eligible to apply).
If you have questions or any doubts about your eligibility, please contact us at info (at) ukrainet.eu.
With this Contest we aim to contribute to increasing the visibility of Ukrainian PhD students abroad and raising the profile of the international, in particular German-Ukrainian, academic collaboration. This is an opportunity for PhD students to advance their presentation skills, learn to present complex scientific questions to a broader interested non-specialist audience and network with other researchers from different fields. Successful candidates will be invited to present their research at the Final event on stage, and get a chance to win one of three prizes as well as add an extra ‘brownie point’ to their CVs.
This Contest is organised for the fourth time by the German-Ukrainian Academic Society/ The UKRAINE Network (The UKRainian Academic International NEtwork, www.ukrainet.eu) and supported by the Nomad Bioscience GmbH and the Embassy of Ukraine in Germany.
Up to 6 finalists are expected to be pre-selected, based on the e-applications submitted here and their CVs submitted per e-mail. The Society will cover the travel (up to 200 EUR) and accommodation (up to 2 nights) cost of the finalists attending the Final.
Head of the Contest Organisation Committee: Prof. Olga Garaschuk, University of Tübingen.
