Applications for the ETH Student Summer Research Fellowship Programme 2022/2023 are now open. The Student Summer Research Fellowship (ETH SSRF) programme offers undergraduate and graduate students the opportunity to gain their first research experience in an area of their choice.
The fellowship provided by the Computer Science Department of ETH takes place during two summer months and is open to all students worldwide. The department is committed to increasing diversity in the computer science area.
Research opportunities are available in the following areas:
- Data Management & Machine Learning
- Information & System Security
- Networked Systems & Parallel Computing
- Pervasive Computing & Cyberphysical Systems
- Programming Languages & Software Engineering
- Theory & Algorithms
- Visual Computing
- Fellows at ETH Zurich will receive a monthly allowance of about CHF 1,750 to cover housing and living expenses.
- Travel and visa expenses will be covered as well. Students can claim the travel costs against receipts at the beginning of the programme.
You are eligible for the ETH Student Summer Research Fellowship programme if you satisfy the following conditions:
- You are enrolled in a study programme (bachelor or masters) in computer science or a closely related field (e.g., electrical engineering, mathematics, physics);
- Your expected graduation date in your current study programme (bachelor or master) is in the year following the fellowship or later;
- You will have completed two years of study by start of the programme (master students naturally satisfy this condition);
- The duration of the fellowship is the full two months of July and August, during which time you must be present.
You will be asked to fill in personal data and upload several documents:
- Your CV. Use the Europass format.
- Official academic transcript from your home university. Use the grading system that your university provides – the grading system on the GPA scale that you have been graded on.
- Letter of motivation/personal statement (max 1 page). Describe in your own words why you have chosen your proposed scientific area of research. Explain what you hope to accomplish by coming to ETH and how it will support your academic or professional goals and prepare you for a career in research. A good personal statement can be written in half a page and you should aim not to write more than a full A4 page. Lay it out carefully to make it easy to read.
Only complete applications with all the required documents submitted through the application tool sirop can be considered for admission.
