JEDIS Exchange Program

The JEDIS exchange program encourages young talent for capacity building in biophotonics research and applications. The program promotes the mutual exchange of young scientists from ­Germany and the USA. A Student Mobility Agreement between UC Davis (Global Affairs) and Leibniz IPHT has been established.

How it works

The JEDIS research visits last 1 month each and are subsidized with research fellowships (about € 3,300 / $ 4,000). Applications for research fellowships are possible year round. The approval of the fellowship is given by the JEDIS Selection Committee, depending on the quality of the project and work schedule. JEDIS seeks to intensify the integration of scholarship holders into German and North American everyday research and culture, e. g. through utilizing the Welcome Centers, mentoring support, etc.
