The NCCR MARVEL is offering 10-15 conference fellowships which aim to support groups in science that are underrepresented due to gender, ethnicity, or any other status. They are available to active PhD students or postdocs not more than two years after their PhD graduation at the time of the conference.
These fellowships will cover:
A participation to travel expenses (for people outside Europe)
Accommodation in Lausanne for the period of the conference
The NCCR MARVEL is a center on Computational Design and Discovery of Novel Materials created by the Swiss National Science Foundation in May 2014. MARVEL targets the accelerated design and discovery of novel materials, via a materials’ informatics platform of database-driven high-throughput quantum simulations, These are powered by advanced electronic-structure capabilities for predictive accuracy; innovative sampling methods to explore configuration/composition space; and the application of machine learning and big data concepts to computational materials science. The research focuses on materials for energy harvesting, storage, and conversion, materials for information-and-communication technologies, and organic crystals/pharmaceuticals. Codes, data and workflows of the project are disseminated through the Materials Cloud platform and the Quantum Mobile virtual machine, both powered by the materials' informatics framework AiiDA.
