Daniel Fahrenheit scholarship programme – second edition


Recruitment for the second edition of the Mayor of Gdańsk’s Daniel Gabriel Fahrenheit Scholarship Programme for international PhD students is still open. Until 15th of September 2023, they can submit their candidacies and apply for a one-year scholarship with accommodation in the centre of Gdańsk. The results of the competition will be announced on 15th of October 2023, while the internship will be carried out from 1st of January to 31st of December 2024 at FarU member universities. The scholarship program is supported by the Pomeranian Voivodeship Self-Government.

Young scientists, doctoral students of foreign universities who are authors or co-authors of a scientific publication, will be given a chance to continue their research in one of the largest academic centres in northern Poland – the Medical University of Gdańsk, Gdańsk University of Technology or the University of Gdańsk. People qualified for the next edition of the program will therefore follow in the footsteps of current interns: Anna, a PhD student from the University of Crete, Maria from the University of Pernambuco in Brazil, and Stabak, a PhD student from the Tripura University in India.

The rules, details and application form are available at the FarU website.

Participants of program’s first edition

During the internship at the University of Gdańsk, Anna is planning to improve her knowledge and broaden her experience in the heterogeneous photocatalysis and techniques used in chemical analysis. Her research work pertains to the design, synthesis and analysis of new layered photocatalysts based on a double hydroxide.

Maria is doing her internship at the Gdańsk University of Technology. The main research object is obtaining new catalysts based on metal-organic compounds, the characteristics of those catalysts and the measurements of photocatalytic activity in the hydrogen generation process.

Stabak is studying the operation of rail transport in the urban area of Gdańsk, Gdynia and Sopot, and the use of geospatial and geostatistical applications for that purpose.
