For thesis supervisors
List of EPFLglobaLeaders applicants
The shortlist of the top-ranked EPFLglobaLeaders applicants will be communicated to all EPFL laboratories in February 2021 (call 1) for the supervisor matching stage.
The thesis supervisor must be an EPFL professor or senior scientist (“Maître d’enseignement et de recherche”).
The EPFLglobaLeaders fellowship consists of a monthly contribution to the salary of the doctoral candidate of EUR 1’935 and is granted for a period of forty-eight months. The thesis director must complement the EU contribution to the salary of the doctoral candidate (co-funding cannot come from other H2020 / Horizon Europe funding sources) and pay for the other associated costs (research costs, equipment, travel expenses, conferences, etc.).
The non-academic mentor/co-supervisor is in charge of supervising the EPFLglobaLeaders fellow during his/her mandatory secondment. This supervision can take two forms: a formal thesis co-supervision recognised by the EPFL Doctoral School or an informal supervision.
The potential thesis supervisor and the (if applicable) co-supervisor from the non-academic sector interview the EPFLglobaLeaders candidate. After the meeting, they must submit an interview report, explaining why they wish (or not) to submit a project proposal with the candidate.
The Intersectoral Excellence Committee (IEC) evaluates and scores the project proposals. Its members then meet to approve the granting of the EPFLglobaLeaders fellowships to the best projects.
More information can be found in the EPFLglobaLeaders Rules and Regulations.
This project has received funding from the European Union’s Horizon 2020 research and innovation programme under the Marie Skłodowska-Curie grant agreement No 945363.
