ELLIS PhD Program: Call for applications 2023

The ELLIS PhD Program is set to accept applications for the fall of 2023, and the application portal will become accessible in October.


The ELLIS PhD program is a core component of the ELLIS initiative, designed to nurture and educate exceptional talents within the realm of machine learning and its related research domains. It accomplishes this goal by pairing exceptional students with distinguished academic and industrial researchers across Europe. The program integrates an array of networking and training opportunities, including summer schools and workshops. Each PhD student benefits from co-supervision by an ELLIS fellow/scholar or unit faculty member and another fellow/scholar or unit faculty member from distinct European nations. This collaborative approach includes an exchange period of at least 6 months with an international advisor during the course of their degree. In cases where an advisor originates from industry, the student engages in close collaboration with the industry partner.
