Casimir PhD Program, The Delft-Leiden Casimir Research School

Casimir PhD Program, The Delft-Leiden Casimir Research School
The Delft-Leiden Casimir Research School (Casimir) offers an advanced European scientific atmosphere to ambitious and talented MSc and PhD students interested in academic research, which crosses the traditional boundaries between fundamental and applied research and crosses the scientific disciplines. The school is initiated by leading physicists from the Leiden Institute of Physics (LION) at Leiden University and from the Kavli Institute of NanoScience at Delft University of Technology. The School is named after H.B.G. Casimir (1909-2000), professor in Theoretical Physics whose involvement in fundamental as well as applied physics left many traces in the Dutch scientific landscape. He is best-known for his discovery of the so-called Casimir effect and for his visions on science and research-management.

Casimir PhD program

The Physics Institute at Leiden University and the Kavli Institute of Nanoscience at Delft have created a limited number of PhD positions for students of exceptional quality. A committee of leading scientists of the Casimir Research School will make the selection. The selected candidates will start by working for brief periods in about three research groups of their choice after which they may choose the subject for their research as well as the supervisor they would like to work with.
In the Netherlands the Master and PhD are not combined, like is common in for example the US. As a Dutch PhD you are not a student but a scientific employee. The normal duration of the PhD-study is four years, which is strictly monitored to ensure that most PhD students finish their PhD-thesis within this timeframe.

Casimir Program in short:

  • For the most excellent students;
  • Programme tailored to your own research plans and insights;
  • Interdisciplinary;
  • Intercultural / international;
  • Independent research position;
  • Good supervision;
  • Courses & summerschool;
  • General courses (English / presenting / writing your thesis).

Funding opportunities

A PhD position is a full-time employment position with a salary that is comparable to entrance level salaries in industry. There is no tuition fee.

International embedding

Research within Casimir benefits from the strong international position of the Lorentz center at Leiden and the Kavli Institute of Nanoscience at Delft, leading to a flux of experienced and talented post-docs and visiting scholars. At our universities all lectures, ll seminars and colloquia are given in English, and undergraduate and graduate theses are written in English.

The School’s qualities:

Top-ranking researchers and teachers
In international rankings the cluster of researchers participating in Casimir is identified as belonging to the top of the European research universities, as testified by the publication and citation record of the individual professors. Many professors have won prestigious European and national grants, and participate in major international programs.
Gateway to a research-career
Graduates with a MSc or PhD degree find their way into academic institutions abroad, into many small high-tech companies as well as large international companies of which many are based in the Netherlands such as Philips, Shell, Akzo, DSM, ING, and ABN-AMRO.
Fields of research and education
The Casimir research school offers research-programs and teaching programs in 6 focused areas:
    i. Molecular biophysics; ii. Physics of nanostructures; iii. Quantum matter and functional materials; iv. Quantum information and quantum optics; v. Astro-particle physics and instrumentation; vi. Dynamic complex systems.

Application Procedure

Please apply via our website:

[Indian] Indian Government Scholarship 2010-11

Five complete sets of application  forms are to be submitted to the Indian Mission. Candidate should clearly mention the course and university to which he/she is seeking admission. The applicants are advised to go through the “Universities Handbook” available with our Mission before giving these details. ICCR would not be able to entertain a subsequent change in course of study or University once admission of a scholar is confirmed and the scholar has arrived to join the course.
Certified copies of all documents should be accompanied with English translations. A syllabus of the last qualifying exam application.

  • Students applying for doctoral/post doctoral courses or architecture should include a synopsis of the proposed area of research.
  • Students wishing to study performing arts should, if possible, enclose Video/audio cassettes of their recorded performances.
  • Candidates must pass English Proficiency Test conducted by Indian Mission.
  • ICCR will not entertain applications which are sent to ICCR directly by the students or which are sent by local Embassy/High Commissions in New Delhi.
Priority will be given to students who have never studied in India before.

No application will be accepted for admission to courses in medicine or dentistry.
Candidates may note that Indian universities/educational institutions are autonomous and independent and hence have their own eligibility criteria. Forwarding of applications is thus not a guarantee of admission. A scholarship is awarded only when admission is confirmed by ICCR.- 2 -
Students must carry a proper visa. Scholars for structured undergraduate and postgraduate courses should carry full term “Student Visas” while for Ph.D. students “Research Visas” for a specific period of 4-5 years is required. Students should ensure that they get the correct visa from the Indian Embassy/High Commission. Govt. of India guidelines stipulate that if a scholar arrives without proper visa and his actual admission at the University/Institute does not materialize, he/she will be deported to his/her country.
In the case of students who require Research Visas, an additional application for the Research Visa has to be filled and submitted in six copies along with six photographs & synopsis. Applicants may note that clearance of Research Visa can take as long as six to eight months. Before departing for India the scholars should seek a full briefing from the Indian Diplomatic
Mission in their country about living conditions in India/the details of scholarship/the type and duration of the course to which he/she is admitted. Scholars should inform the Indian Embassy/High Commission of their travel schedule well in advance so that ICCR can make reception and other arrangements for them.
Hostel accommodation is not guaranteed and is an exception rather that an assured facility.
The accommodation allowance that ICCR gives, allows 2 to 3 students to “chum up”, and share a small flat.Scholars are advised to carry some money to meet some incidental expenditure on arrival. All intending candidates should in their own interest obtain a certificate that they are free from AIDS prior to their departure for India. Even in India, the applicant would have to go for AIDS test before the admission is finally given to overseas scholars. In case any of the nominees is found to be HIV positive in India the scholar will be repatriated immediately and the Council would not bear any expenses on this account.
The scholars who are awarded scholarships should bring with them all documents relating to their qualifications in original for verification by the respective college/university at the time of admissions. This application form contains a ‘tear-out’ sheet at Appendix-7 titled “Joining Report of the Scholar”. This form should not be submitted along with the main application. Instead, the ‘Joining Report’ form should be removed and submitted to ICCR by the scholar in the event the scholar has been granted scholarship and only after the scholar has joined an educational institute in India. This form should be submitted with the required stamp & signature of the Institute authorities.

The Scholarship will be payable in Edinburgh as a deduction of the Summer School's course and accommodation fees, which cover the costs of all tuition, accommodation, most meals, a social and cultural programme and includes full use of the facilities of the library of Edinburgh University. The successful candidate will be offered a free place on either the Text and Context Course or the Creative Writing Course. The Scholarship does not cover travel expenses or spending money.
Applications for this special Scholarship are now invited from present or recent students and junior lecturers who specialise in Twentieth Century Theatre Studies and/or are practically involved in the Theatre. Normally, applicants will be required to have a research interest and/or practical experience in the general field of Twentieth Century popular and political theatre. The closing date for the award is 12th April 2010.
Applicants should indicate on page 4 of the application form if they would like to be considered for the John McGrath Scholarship in Theatre Studies, and include a letter explaining their reasons for applying. We require one of your referees to support this scholarship application.
If unsuccessful, applicants to the Text and Context course can be considered for a SUISS scholarship. (Please indicate on page 4 of the application form if you would like this to be the case.) Please note that SUISS scholarships only cover part of the course fee. Applicants for the six weeks course can apply for a SUISS scholarship for the first term of the Text and Context course.
Further information can be found on the SUISS website, which also contains the facility to download our application forms. A brochure, application form and credit information can also be obtained from:

[England] David Daiches Scholarship for British and Irish Literature

Professor Daiches established the School in 1947 with the aim of promoting international goodwill and cultural understanding, bringing together students from around the world to study, socialise and befriend one another. Professor Daiches died in 2006, and SUISS commemorates the life and vision of our founder by offering a special scholarship in his name.

By offering a residential scholarship for one student for a two weeks course (according to the applicant's choice of modules) we hope to continue to promote his vision. The scholarship is intended to support a gifted literature student who would otherwise be unable to attend the School, and will be awarded on the bases of academic merit and financial need.
The Scholarship will be payable in Edinburgh and cover the Summer School's course and accommodation fees, which includes the costs of all tuition, accommodation, most meals, a social and cultural programme and full use of the facilities of the library of Edinburgh University. The successful candidate will be offered a free place on the Text and Context Course. It is at the discretion of the selection committee if this is for one or more modules. The Scholarship does not cover travel expenses or spending money. If your attendance of SUISS solely depends on receiving the scholarship, you do not have to pay the deposit.
Applications for this special Scholarship are now invited from undergraduate or postgraduate students in British and/or Irish Literature. The closing date for the award is 12th April 2010.
Applicants should indicate on page 4 of the application form if they would like to be considered for the David Daiches Scholarship, and include a letter with further details regarding their financial situation, giving the reasons why SUISS should consider them for the scholarship. We also require that one of the referees supports the scholarship application. There is no separate application form.
If unsuccessful, applicants to the Text and Context course can be considered for a SUISS scholarship. (Please indicate on page 4 of the application form if you would like this to be the case.) Please note that SUISS scholarships only cover part of the course fee.
Further information can be found on the SUISS website, which also contains the facility to download our application forms, and the SUISS brochure.
