The ICMAT announces a programme of grants aimed at students enrolled in official master’s degree courses who are interested in starting a research career. The grants include the collaboration of students with a researcher at the ICMAT, on a basis of compatibility with their studies. The aim of the programme is to raise awareness at university level of the professional opportunities offered by the Institute.
The application period begins on 9 May and ends on 1 June 2022.
A total of nine ten-month scholarships will be offered during the academic year 2022-2023. The total amount of each grant will be €10,000 in ten monthly instalments, and will include an additional endowment of up to €4,000 to cover fees for the Official Master’s Degree in the area of Mathematics in which they are enrolled during the period of enjoyment of the grant.
Two different modalities are offered:
- For the SO modality (7 grants): the beneficiary may choose any ICMAT staff researcher from the list available at http://www.icmat.es/people/faculty as the responsible researcher, and in the event that he/she is not available, another researcher will be assigned according to his/her interests. The responsible researcher must be the person who will supervise the beneficiary’s Master’s thesis.
- For the AdG modality (2 grants): the research will be carried out on mathematical models from fluid mechanics. The problems to be addressed will focus on the search for singularities in incompressible fluids. The beneficiary will work under the direction of Diego Córdoba Gazolaz, PI of the Advanced Grant Project with reference ERC-AdG-NONFLU, who will be his Master’s thesis supervisor.
The average dedication of the beneficiaries of the grant will be 20 hours per week.
