Apply to NII International Internship Program for informatics research visits in Tokyo.

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 need 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 May 10th. Then the decision will be made at KTH which applicants
we should recommend. Vice president Stefan Östlund is responsible for
this process.

The visit should start before April 2020 and last for at least two months.
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.

NII will notify all successful candidates in late June.

NII is an extremely strong research institution. It is the only national
institute in the area of computer science with some 75 permanent
professors and also many visiting professors. NII also offers PhD-
programmes.

The institute is located in central Tokyo.
