Women master students may apply for three internships in Swiss robotics laboratories

The Swiss NCCR in Robotics offers financial support to host women master students to carry out an internship of 3 to 6 months in an NCCR-robotics laboratory. 
The Swiss NCCR (National Center of Competence in Research) in Robotics is a center funded by the Swiss National Science Foundation that brings together leading robotic experts in Switzerland from leading research institutions: EPFL as the home institution, ETH Zurich, the University of Zurich and the Dalle Molle Institute for Artificial Intelligence. See http://www.nccr-robotics.ch

Eligible applicants are women master students from any international institution who follow a robotics-related program (e.g., the M.Sc. in Artificial Intelligence and Robotics at DIAG, Sapienza, or in computer science, electrical engineering, mechanical engineering, etc.). The scholarship covers accommodation and living expenses with 2500 CHF (Swiss Francs) per month for three to six months. 

Three scholarships are expected to be funded. Applications should be prepared by the student candidate in coordination with the hosting professor. 
Interested students should therefore first contact a professor from one of the NCCR laboratories and discuss a possible research project with her/him. 
See http://www.nccr-robotics.ch/people for a list of professors.

The application should then contain the following:
1. A PDF document containing a brief description (maximum 1 page including references, font size 12) of the project as agreed between the hosting professor and the student.
2. A CV of the student candidate.
3. One letter of recommendation.

All items should be submitted in English. Applications should be sent by email to scholarship-nccr-robotics@groupes.epfl.ch with the title “master internship application”. 

The submission deadline is September 15, 2013. Notification of acceptance/rejection will be sent out to candidates in early October.
