imgresUpdate (10/01/2017) The call of candidates is now closed. However I encourage those interested in joining to contact us for next year’s call.


Each year, the China Scholarship Council (CSC) provides scholarships for 50 degree-seeking Chinese PhD students, 20 guest doctoral students, 10 postdocs, and 5 visiting scholars to come to KTH. The selection  of the project and students is a year long process that started in September.

All the information necessary are nicely detailed on the KTH website. In particular the requirement for student to apply are detailed as follows:

General Academic Entry Requirements:

Equivalent to a Swedish Master’s degree when you start your PhD studies at KTH (Master’s degree or at least two years of study in combined “Master+PhD” programs at recognized Chinese universities) English proficiency for PhD applicants: IELTS (Academic) 6.5 overall (no subscore below 5.5) or TOEFL (iBT) 90 (written, minimum 20)

The timeline looks like this:



We are suggesting two projects detailed here. You can apply as a PhD student, but opportunities for postdocs are also possible. Contact us for more information!
