We have a possibility of funding up to four scholarships for students in the Master program.
The overview of the competition is following:
- Each scholarship is 1000zł per month in the period from May 2012 to April 2013 (2 scholarships)
and May 2013 to April 2014 (2 scholarships).
- In addition, a small travel allowance will be available for conference and workshop participation.
- The student receiving scholarship must write his Master thesis under the supervision of
dr Jarosław Buczyński,
and is expected to finish the thesis around June 2013 or 2014, respectively.
- The Master thesis must be related to one of the topics of the project.
- The scholarships are awarded for students who win an open competition.
- The scholarship cannot be paid after the student defends his thesis.
The application must include:
- The student must be completing a level-two university course or has completed the third year of a unified
Master's course, and must send his application (see below) by e-mail to
J. Buczyński, firstname.lastname@example.org.
- The selection of the candidates will be performed by a commission consisting of: dr Jaroslaw Buczyński, prof. Adrian Langer, prof. Jarosław Wi¶niewski.
- Based on the applications a commission will choose up to four best candidates.
- Those best candidates will be invited for an interview.
After the interview the commission will choose up to two students to participate in the project.
- Another call will be open in Spring 2013.
- basic personal data (including name(s), surname, date of birth, e-mail, contact telephone number)
- detailed information about candidate's studies
(date of commencement, department(s),
advanced lectures attended by the candidate)
- detailed information about candidate's scientific achievements
(average mark from previous academic years, marks of last term (semester),
basic informations about BSc thesis (praca licencjacka),
awards and distinctions, scholarships etc.)
- a brief description of candidate's mathematical interests,
explaining in particular his interest in the project.
- The candidate should also arrange a recommendation letter of a mathematician of his choice
to be e-mailed directly to J. Buczyński, email@example.com.
- The candidate should prepare a brief (~15min) blackboard presentation on a mathematical subject of his choice.
- All the documents above must be submited in Polish or in English.
- Only applications received on or before Saturday, April 14, 2012 will be considered.
- The interviews will be held on Tue April 17th, 10:00-12:00, and if necessary also on Wed April 18th after 12:00.
During the interview each candidate chosen by the commission will give the 15min talk he prepared,
