Deadline: 15 December 2022
Applications open now for the Student Summer Research Fellowship 2023.
Students in undergraduate and graduate programs can get their first taste of research through the Student Summer Research Fellowship (ETH SSRF) program. The fellowship offered by the ETH Computer Science Department runs for two summer months and is available to all students in the world. The department devotes to fostering more diversity in the field of computer science.
Opportunities for research exist in the following fields:
- Data Management & Machine Learning
- Information & System Security
- Networked Systems & Parallel Computing
- Pervasive Computing & Cyberphysical Systems
- Programming Languages & Software Engineering
- Theory & Algorithms
- Visual Computing
- A monthly stipend of roughly CHF 1.750 given to fellows at ETH Zurich to help with housing and living costs. The cost of travel and obtaining a visa also covered. At the start of the program, students can submit receipts to claim their travel expenses.
- Several on-site networking opportunities will allow fellows to meet individuals outside of their research groups, including current ETH undergraduate and graduate students.
- Once an applicant is accepted into the program, affordable lodging for the duration of the research stay will be arranged. We will also give details about applying for visas (where required).
- In the summer, fellows have the chance to immerse themselves in Zurich’s dynamic culture as well as Switzerland’s breathtaking mountainous terrain.
If you meet the requirements listed below, you are eligible for the ETH Student Summer Research Fellowship program:
- You are a student enrolled in a computer science or closely related program of study (bachelor’s or master’s) (e.g., electrical engineering, mathematics, physics)
- Your anticipated graduation date from your present degree program (bachelor’s or master’s) is the fellowship year or later.
- By the time the program begins, you will have finished two years of coursework (master students naturally satisfy this condition)
- The fellowship will last throughout the entire months of July and August, during which you are required to be present.
