The online form will collect your basic contact information, a SHORT statement of current research (just a few sentences), and allow you to upload an (optional) "Curriculum Vitae & Publications" document. All materials are collected online via the AcademicJobsOnline website; do not send hard-copies of any materials.

AcademicJobsOnline will also send an email request for a letter of reference to someone you specify. We only need a very SHORT reference; just a few sentences stating that you have the necessary background for the school is sufficient.

Enrollment will be limited to 80 participants.

A registration fee of US$700 covers the participant's portion of lodging as well as most meals. A limited number of fellowships covering all or part of the registration fee will be available.

EMAIL: For questions, you may contact: cteq.school@gmail.com Do not send applications to this email -- all application material is collected online.
