We are happy to announce that Nanchen Dongfang (UZH), Emma Lumiaro (Aalto University) and Mathilde Franckel (ECPM, Strasbourg) were granted INSPIRE Potentials – MARVEL Master's Fellowships after the April 2021 call. The three women will join MARVEL labs for a 6-month Master's research project — congratulations!

  • Nanchen Dongfang  from University of Zurich will join the group of Jürg Hutter at UZH from July 2021.
  • Emma Lumiaro from Aalto University will join the group of Michele Ceriotti at EPFL from mid-September 2021.
  • Mathilde Franckel from the Ecole Européenne de Chimie, Polymères et Matériaux in Strasbourg will join the group of Alfredo Pasquarello at EPFL from mid-February 2022.

These three students bring the number of fellowships to 34 since the 2016 launch of the initiative, which involves two calls per year. Of these, 9 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 October 2021. All the information is available here.
