  2. ETH AI Center Postdoctoral Fellowship (deadline in late fall)

PhD students

Here is some information on ways to apply:

  1. If you have (or expect to obtain soon) a M.Sc. degree and are interested in interdisciplinary research, consider applying to the ETH AI center PhD fellowship and mention my name in your application.
  2. If you have (or expect to obtain soon) a M.Sc. degree and are interested in the Center for Learning Systems (our joint PhD program with Max Planck), apply and mention my name in your application. Please note the early application deadline.
  3. If you have (or expect to obtain soon) a M.Sc. degree and are interested in NLP for Education, consider applying to the ETH Zurich - EPFL Joint Doctoral Program in the Learning Sciences and mention my name in your application. The program accepts applications twice a year.
  4. If you are a bachelor student without a M.Sc. degree, you may apply to the Direct Doctorate in Computer Science and express specific interest in our research group in your application. You should also tag Ryan Cotterell in your application if you are interested in NLP.

Finally, if you cannot apply to any of the above application deadlines, you can also submit an application through the department’s admission system at any time. In this case, it is okay to send us an email stating your interest with your CV.

We can also host PhD students as a part of the Ellis PhD program.

Bachelor, Master projects and Internships

Bachelor/Master projects for ETH Zurich students

If you are a Master student at ETH Zurich looking for a thesis project, contact Mrinmaya (or any group member) by email with your CV and transcripts. We maintain a list of available thesis projects here. However, you can also propose your own topic.

If you are a Bachelor at ETH Zurich looking for a thesis project, you should ideally have succesfully completed one of the two NLP classes in the department (252-3005-00L-Natural Language Processing or 263-5000-00L-Computational Semantics for Natural Language Processing) or our AI in Education class (263-5005-00L). However, there can be exceptions. Feel free to contact Mrinmaya (or any group member) by email with your CV and transcripts. Some available thesis projects are listed here. You can also propose your own topic.

Internship/Bachelor/Master projects for students at other universities

We usually have limited bandwidth to take on bachelor or master students from other universities. However, if you think you are a very good fit, feel free to reach out.

If you are interested in an internship, please apply to our Student Summer Research Fellowship program (annual deadline in December). If you think you are a good fit and have some research experience already, you can reach out. However, please note that I get too many internship requests. We may not be able to respond to your emails.

Also consider applying to the ThinkSwiss Scholarships for internships and short term stays. You can refer to the ThinkSwiss Research Scholarship pages to support your stay in Switzerland for up to 3 months and the deadline for applying is in January each year.

Members of various minority groups in academia are especially encouraged to apply.
