The fellowship program
The Claude Shannon Fellowship gives early career researchers the opportunity to independently investigate and teach. They also receive the funds for one to two doctoral researchers / PhD students. The applicants have achieved an excellent doctorate in computer science or in a related field. They have a strong academic track record including publications and international research experience. Ideally, they held at least one post-doc position at another university.
The program was named in honor of the US-American mathematician and electrical engineer Claude Elwood Shannon (1916 – 2001), who is known as one of the founders of the information theory and was a pioneer in the area of cryptography.
