F.A.Q

  • To participate in the programme, you need to take the following simple steps:
    1. Register on the website by clicking the REGISTER button and filling in the registration form. Wait for your form to be approved by the Team. Afterwards, you will receive an email with a login and password to be able to log in as a student to apply for projects.
    2. Choose a Wave, view its projects, and select one or several projects that fit your field of interest and can be most beneficial for your work, thesis, etc.
    3. Apply for the project: read the project description and skill requirements carefully, fill in the motivation box and press the APPLY button. The selection results will be announced not later than 5 days before the Wave starting date. Please monitor your mail. If you do not get any feedback 5 days before the Wave starting date, please contact our Team: interest@jinr.ru

  • If the project supervisor rejects your application, you will be informed about it by email. Rejection of applications happens for the following main reasons:
    • According to your profile, you do not have the skills required for the project, or the project lies outside your field of interest.
    • You are overqualified for the project, and accepting you will not be efficient.
    • Your profile does not give enough information about your qualifications, and the supervisor has chosen a student with a more detailed profile.
    If your application has been rejected, you can try adding more details to your profile (thesis, CV indicating the skills related to the project, articles, a more specific motivation) and apply for projects in the next Wave.

  • After you have been approved for the project and confirmed your participation, the Team will contact you to provide further instructions.
    Your work on the project will be carried out via Zoom, WhatsApp (or any convenient platform), and email, upon agreement with your project supervisor. You will also agree on your working schedule.
    At the end of your project work you must submit a written report.

    The requirements to the report are the following:
    1. The report should include an abstract that will be published on the website.
    2. The abstract must be written in English and should contain not more than 150 words.
    3. The language of the main part can be English or Russian.
    4. The volume of the main part should be 10-15 pages (including figures and references), font size 12-14.
    5. The contents of the main part should include the following sections: introduction (main problem, background, findings), project goals, scope of work, methods, figures/diagrams/plots, results, conclusion (discussions, prospects), references, acknowledgments.

    Frontpage template
    6. The report should be uploaded not later than 1 week after the Wave has ended.
    7. After uploading, the report should be approved by the project supervisor. The supervisor does that by pressing the APPROVE button on the website. After that the report is considered officially submitted.
    8. The format of the uploaded report should be doc or pdf.
    9. To upload the report, go to your project page and press “Add report”.
    After the report is uploaded and approved, you will receive a participation certificate.

  • Before accepting students on their projects, supervisors go through a great deal of preparation, which includes not only modifying their working schedule (cancelling business trips, shifting holidays, etc.), developing the project contents that would fit the applicants’ needs, but also the necessary paperwork required to make your online research officially possible. Therefore, it is extremely undesirable to suddenly quit your project without any reason. We truly hope this is not going to be the case. However, in case of emergency, please notify your project supervisor and the Team by email as soon as possible.
    In case you fail to notify your project supervisor and the INTEREST Team of your quitting the project and the reason for doing so, your account on the website will be suspended, which means you will not be able to apply for next Waves. Thank you for understanding.

  • INTEREST provides a unique opportunity to:
    - do science in the online format
    - raise your chances to be selected for JINR onsite programmes
    - learn more about JINR, its labs, conducted research, and the main facilities
    - build useful contacts
    - find a potential thesis supervisor
    - take a chance to start your scientific career with JINR

  • Participation in the programme is free-of-charge. Also, no payments/refunds/reimbursements to the participants are envisaged.

  • You can apply for a different project in a new Wave, provided it fits your field of interest and is beneficial for your work, thesis, etc. Please pay attention to the fact that your application does not guarantee selection.
    In case you quit the project and failed to notify your project supervisor and the INTEREST Team of that and the reason for doing so, your account on the website will be suspended, which means you will not be able to apply for next Waves.
