  • Strong interest in working on the above-mentioned topics for five years
  • The ability to work both independently and in small teams

What we offer:

  • A custom-tailored curriculum to prepare you for a career as a scientist
  • A creative, diverse, and collaborative working environment in one of the world's most innovative and most livable areas [2, 4]
  • Integration into the WASP Graduate School [3], which offers regular opportunities (courses, workshops, international study trips) for learning more about autonomous systems and linking up with interdisciplinary teams
  • Opportunities for participating in international research conferences and for connecting with scientists and practitioners around the world
