*Internships for women master students in Swiss NCCR 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 
<http://www.epfl.ch> as the home institution, ETH Zurich 
<http://www.ethz.ch>, the University of Zurich <http://www.uzh.ch> and 
the Dalle Molle Institute for Artificial Intelligence 
<http://www.idsia.ch>. See http://www.nccr-robotics.ch


Eligible applicants are:

-*Women master students from any international institution who follow a 
robotics-related program *(e.g. mechanical engineering, electrical 
engineering, computer science, etc.). Recently graduated woman MSc 
students can also apply.


The scholarship *covers accommodation and living expenses with 2'500 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 at groupes.epfl.ch* 
<mailto:scholarship-nccr-robotics at 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.
