This was published on December 7, 2021

We are happy to announce that Virginie De Mestral (EPFL), Nataliya Paulish (EPFL) and Mie Engelbrecht Jensen (DTU) were granted INSPIRE Potentials – MARVEL Master's Fellowships after the October 2021 call. The three women will join MARVEL labs for a 6-month Master's research project — congratulations!

  • Virginie de Mestral from EPFL has already joined the group of Mathieu Luisier at ETH Zurich in October 2021.
  • Nataliya Paulish from EPFL will join the group of Nicola Marzari at EPFL from September 2022.
  • Mie Engelbrecht Jensen from DTU in Lyngby, Denmark will join the group of Nicola Spaldin at ETHZ from February 2022.

These three students bring the number of fellowships to 37 since the 2016 launch of the initiative, which involves two calls per year. Of these, 10 are already continuing at the PhD level in a MARVEL group. Take the opportunity to discover the testimonials of some of our previous INSPIRE Potentials fellows here .

The INSPIRE Potentials fellowships aim to empower excellent female students to conduct their Master's research project in simulation and modelling in a laboratory belonging to the NCCR MARVEL. They consist of a six-month 12'000 CHF fellowship (+ 500 CHF for travel + separate coverage of tuition fees and medical insurance (for non EU participants)). 

Please note that the next application deadline is 15 April 2022. All the information is available here.
