START Programme for students

JINR Student Programme was launched in 2014. In 2022, it began to work under the new name START – STudent Advanced Research Training at JINR.

START is intended for students from all over the world who specialise in science, engineering, and IT, starting from their 3rd year of undergraduate studies (completed) up to the 1st year of PhD.

Selected students are invited to 6-8-week onsite advanced-level internship and work on solving real scientific and engineering tasks under the guidance of our leading experts.

Participation in START makes it possible to find a scientific supervisor for future BSc, MSc, or PhD theses, and increases the chances to become part of a large international team of the Institute.

To participate in the Programme, you should:

  • register on;
  • choose a START session and apply for participation in it;
  • undergo a competitive selection;
  • publish a report on the Programme website at the end of the session.
