About the Program

 ITMO Fellowship and Professorship Program aims to provide outstanding researchers and scientists with the opportunity to build an independent research career. Our intention is to foster the next generation of researchers with the greatest potential in their early career or professorial stages.

The applications are reviewed by the Program committee six times a year. The approved applicants are invited to start collaborating with ITMO University laboratories within 6 months after the announcement of the decision.

ITMO F&P administration team will assist the successful candidates with obtaining Russian visa, choosing flights and accommodation, and will provide support upon arrival to St. Petersburg. Please, contact us, if you have any questions.

Due to the pandemiс of COVID-19, and the resulting ban on entry of foreigners to the Russian Federation, we encourage participants to apply for the Micro Fellowship, Visiting Lecturer, and Global Academics tracks, and start collaborating online. 

This program is supported by the Ministry of Science and Higher Education of the Russian Federation The Federal Target Program "5-100"
