As PhD-candidate or master student at KTH you have an opportunity to be guest researcher at the leading institute for informatics in Japan
The National Institute of Informatics (NII) in Tokyo has identified KTH as a prioritized partner institution and has therefore decided to award grants for up to 3 persons from KTH per year for the coming years. Master students and PhD-students at KTH are eligible.
Students are encouraged to find a supervising professor at NII and then write a Letter of Motivation. The Letter should be sent to Assoc.Prof. Atsuto Maki, Atsuto@kth.se, who is coordinating this program at KTH. Do that before November 2nd. Then the applications will be ranked.
The interns should arrive to NII before March 15th, 2019.
The grant will cover living costs during the internship for between 2 and 6 months (5,700 yen per day). It can be possible to stay even longer but then without funding.
NII also offers some courses during the year taught in English that visiting students can take.
The final nomination for KTH is done by vice president Stefan Östlund.
The nominees should then apply to NII before their deadline on Nov. 7th.
NII is an extremely strong research institution. It is the only national institute in the area of computer science with 76 permanent professors and also many visiting professors. NII also offers PhD-programmes. The institute is located in central Tokyo.
