Kavli ENSI, UC Berkeley and Winton Program, University of Cambridge EXCHANGE PROGRAM

Call For the 2023 Kavli ENSI and Winton Program Exchange Program Applications Is Now OPEN

An Exchange Program has been established between the Winton Program for the Physics of Sustainability at the University of Cambridge and the Kavli Energy NanoScience Institute (ENSI) at the University of California, Berkeley to support research within the fields of these two programs.

Exchanges for Ph.D. students, postdoctoral researchers and faculty will be supported in both directions between research groups involved in the Winton Program and the ENSI, though additional collaborators from both Universities will be included where their research activities strongly relate to the Winton and ENSI programs.

We are seeking applications for exchange visits of up to a year, with flexible starting dates for the following schemes:

  • Ph.D. students – Graduate Exchange Scholars
  • Postdoctoral researchers – Postdoctoral Exchange Fellows
  • Faculty – Sabbatical Visitors

The deadline for applications for all schemes is Friday, December 16, 2022

Details of the Winton Program can be found at http://www.winton.phy.cam.ac.uk/ and enquires and further information can be obtained by contacting the Winton Program Manager Dr. Lata Sahonta <sls55@cam.ac.uk>

Students can apply for visits of up to one year to pursue their research projects at the host university.  To be eligible to apply students will need to be registered on a PhD program at their home university for the duration of the visit, and obtain approval from their home and host supervisors for the exchange visit.

Financial support will be provided to meet economy return airfares and visa costs and local expenses towards accommodation and subsistence, including medical insurance. In addition, research support funds will be provided to the group of the host supervisor to facilitate the research of the Ph.D. student.
