CWI launches a new Fellowship for female students in the fields of mathematics, computer science, and related field!
The Fellowship is named after Constance van Eeden (1927-2021), who worked at CWI from 1954 to 1960 and was one of the first female PhD students in statistics in the Netherlands. With this Fellowship, CWI wants to honor her and create awareness for the position of women in science.
This is truly fantastic opportunity for young female students who aim to do a PhD. The Fellowship offers:
– PhD position at CWI
– Freedom to choose your own research topic within the four overarching CWI themes: Algorithms, Data & Intelligent Systems, Cryptology & Security, and Quantum Computing
– Residency at a prestigious foreign institute/university for 6 months
– Internal mentoring by a female role model from CWI or by an external coach or mentor (in addition to the regular supervision by the supervisor)
CWI, together with Public Cinema, created this video for the experiences of three female researchers (Francien Bossema, Stacey Jeffery, and Džemila Šero) at CWI.
