Skoltech in Moscow seeking founders for M.Sc. and Ph.D. programs

Skoltech, a startup university in Moscow established in 2011 with MIT, is seeking founders to join its unique English-language, tuition-free M.Sc. and Ph.D. programs -- and to help build a new kind of university for the twenty-first century.

Universities have historically served as cathedrals of learning. The birth of research universities in the nineteenth century made the pursuit of new knowledge, rather than simply its transmission, the central mission of universities. Now, in the early twenty-first century, the task of universities must be not only to teach and discover, but to enable technological and social innovation.

And as we know, the most important and innovative people in any university are not the professors, but the students, because they are the ones who bring change to the world. Skoltech was designed with this updated imperative for universities in mind. Over the past four years, Skoltech has established a community of world-class scientists, technological entrepreneurs, and innovators. And now we're seeking to double in size. More than 20% of our students come from outside of Russia, including recent graduates of Imperial College London, Korea Advanced Institute of Science & Technology, MIT, NYU, Royal Institute of Technology, and U of British Columbia.

So, if you're committed to technological innovation, interested in cutting-edge fields and want to help launch a new type of university, come join us at Skoltech. We offer programs in computer and data science, energy systems and storage, oil & gas, electronics and nanomaterials, quantum materials and photonics, biomedicine, space, and advanced manufacturing, design, and materials modelling.

There's no tuition at Skoltech and all admitted M.Sc. and Ph.D. students receive a monthly stipend to cover living expenses.

For more on what you can do at Skoltech and if you're interested in applying, click here.
