Institute of Science and Technology Austria (ISTA) is now accepting applications For The Ph.D. Scholarship Program. The Ph.D. application call for entry is September 2023 and is once again OPEN. If you have already created/submitted an application, you will need to recreate this and submit your documents again – including referee details and references – as all previous data has been lost due to the attack.
The application deadline has accordingly been pushed back to 28 February 2023. Early application is strongly encouraged; however, the timing of your application will ultimately not impact your chances of admission.
ISTA welcomes students with different academic backgrounds who can bring their skills and experiences to the scientific setting.
Students with a Bachelor’s or Master’s degree in biology, chemistry, neuroscience, mathematics, computer science, physics, data science, and scientific computing and related areas are encouraged to apply.
