For PhD students and postdocs

MARVEL is to contribute to the formation of doctoral and postdoctoral students. This is achieved through various actions such as scientific meetings, lectures, schools and workshops.

MARVEL encourages students (PhD and postdocs) associated to the NCCR to participate in various schools and workshops in the field of computational design and discovery of novel materials, or more generally in topics of current interest in theoretical condensed matter physics and materials science. 

It sponsors workshops, conferences, and tutorials that focus on topics associated to MARVEL by providing a financial contribution to young MARVEL collaborators. In this way, through the contact with world-experts attending such conferences, MARVEL encourages high-level education and training of its members.
