Applications are open for the 2024 IBFD Academic Doctoral Meeting of Researchers in International Taxation (DocMIT) and Postdoctoral International Tax Forum (PITF):
Applications are open until 31 December 2023! Check out the brochure for more information regarding the procedure and requirements.
What is it about?
The purpose of the DocMIT and PITF is to provide researchers with an opportunity to discuss their current research projects with leading academics and a select circle of colleagues. Participants benefit from tailored coaching provided by our panel of international tax professors, as well as from feedback provided by peers from around the world.
For the first time after the restrictions due to the pandemic, the seminar will take place at the IBFD HQ in Amsterdam, returning to its traditional in-person format.
You can find more information on the event at this link and, of course, spreading the word through your network will be much appreciated!
The programme will become available closer to the event.
The DocMIT is designed for students working on their doctoral theses in the fields of international, European or comparative tax law. There are no age limits or requirements concerning the stage of development of theses. Nevertheless, we expect all participants to have made some substantial progress in their research already and to have a good grasp of their subject, well-defined research questions, at least a first outline of their thesis and preferably some preliminary conclusions. Doctoral students should be at a stage where the external coaching and exchange of points are most valuable.
The aim of the PITF is to provide a worldwide forum for young tax scholars from all over the world to meet and discuss their ongoing research projects. In order to qualify, applicants must:
- Have obtained their PhD
- Be under the age of 50
- Spend 30% or more of their work time on research-related activities (regardless of the place in which such activities are performed: universities, international organizations, institutes, research centres, etc.)
Candidates are expected to be in the process of developing a comprehensive research project on international, European or comparative taxation, preferably different from the one that granted them their doctoral degree. University professors and lecturers are particularly encouraged to apply.
