The SKCM2 InternKNOTship Program is an academic internship designed to allow young researchers from all over the World to work in collaboration with SKCM2 members in the field of knotted chiral meta matter. This program provides opportunities for overseas participants to stay in Japan and perform their experiments or develop their theories under supervision or in collaboration with SKCM2 PIs. Participants can request financial support for travel and accommodation at Hiroshima University for 3 weeks to 3 months, with a maximum of 6 months total. If necessary, participants can also request a suitable stipend to compensate for the funding they would typically receive from their home institutions during the InternKNOTship.

Through this program, overseas participants will contribute to advancing the lively exchange of young talent at SKCM2 and help enhance SKCM2 ‘s international recognition. Certificates will be issued to all successful participants to acknowledge their inclusion in the SKCM2 'family.' We anticipate that the internKNOTship will lead to sustained collaborations with SKCM2 members. 

Before applying, candidates should contact our WPI PIs or co-PIs and develop a detailed plan of research activities for the entire duration of stay. We encourage applicants to combine their stays in Japan with SKCM2 winter/summer schools, conferences, and symposia. 

All application documents should be uploaded to AcademicJobsOnline.org (registration required):
- A CV with a publication list 
- A cover letter that contains the contact information of the mentor at the applicant’s home institution and HU-based InternKNOTship mentor 
- A collaboration plan for the InternKNOTship, limited to 1 page
