The fellowships in the amount of 14 000 CZK per month are initially for two semesters with a possibility of extension, conditional on the student's performance. The candidates must hold a Master degree (before starting the PhD studies), or equivalent. They should submit a letter of application accompanied by a CV including their study history and a motivation letter to Martin Kolář ( mkolar@math.muni.cz) .

They should also arrange for at least 2 letters of recommendation to be mailed directly to mkolar@math.muni.cz .

The applications will be assessed continuously. The successful applicants will be notified as soon as possible, but not later than 60 days after the submission.
