World’s leading scientists become visiting professors at MIPT

A competition ending Sept. 14 determined the names of 17 researchers who will serve as visiting lecturers at MIPT. Among them are renowned professors from the world’s top universities, including École polytechnique fédérale de Lausanne, ParisTech, the University of Edinburgh, Arizona State University, the University of Zurich, and the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign.

Visiting professorship grants are awarded to active researchers with extensive work experience in leading international research centers and universities. At MIPT, each visiting lecturer is joined by a faculty member. Together, they co-supervise a research team comprising between two and seven undergraduate, graduate, and doctoral students. The grant is provided for implementing a specific research project in an MIPT laboratory or department, as well as for supervising student research, reading lectures, and facilitating academic exchanges. The amount of grant funding, which was determined by the selection committee, varies between 4 million rubles and 8 million rubles (about $70,000-$140,000).

By attracting professors of international standing, we foster a connection with leading research teams and engage MIPT students into research work in joint projects focused on areas at the heart of modern science.

It is worth noting that the submitted applications generally reflected a high level of scientific achievement on the part of the candidates. Thus, the visiting professors to whom the grants were awarded have an average h-index of 32 and, on average, publish 10 papers per year. Four of the grant recipients have more than three publications in Nature or Science.
