Admission and Application

The students are expected to have operating programming skills in an interpreted language like Python or compiled languages like C/C++ and/or Fortran as well as  knowledge of nuclear physics and quantum mechanics at an intermediate level. 

The target group is Master of Science students, PhD students and early post-doctoral fellows. Also senior staff can attend but they have to be self-supported. The maximum number of students is 25-30, of which only at most 15-20 can receive full local support. The process of selections of the students will be managed in agreement with the ECT*.

Application for the ECT* TALENT School should be made electronically through the webform.

It should include:

  • Curriculum vitae

ECT* will provide fellowships for selected students to cover their living expenses (i.e. accommodation and a limited per diem). Priority will be given to students staying for the entire length of the TALENT Programme. It is understood that students attending only parts of the program will fully self-support their living expenses (no additional fees are charged to the participants). Students are welcome to arrive on June 21 and leave on July 11.
