Based on a funding announcement from the Research and Innovation Authority of the Slovak Republic in cooperation with the program Next Generation EU, Faculty of Mathematics, Physics and Computer Science of the Comenius University in Bratislava, Slovakia, seeks applicants for doctoral program in Computer Science holding Master degrees in Computer Science or related fields awarded by non-Slovakian universities.

The selected applicant will receive a monthly stipend of 1025.50 euro per month prior to passing their dissertation exam (typically by the end of the second year of studies) and 1194.00 euro per month after successful completion of the exam. The stipend is not subject to taxation and the selected applicant will not need to pay any study related fees. In addition, they will receive 200 euro per month for additional research related expenses.  Comenius University also provides subsidized student housing to all of its doctoral students receiving a stipend.

The duration of the funding is for four years; which is the expected time of completion of doctoral studies in Slovakia. The starting date is September 1, 2023. To be eligible, the applicant must hold a Master degree in Computer Science or a related field prior to September 1, 2023. Students who obtained their degree from a Slovak University are not eligible for this program.
