05 APRIL 2018 / Call for Applications for the SNF Zurich Heart Fellowship Program

After a successful first phase, the Stavros Niarchos Foundation Zurich Heart Fellowship Program is now entering a second phase and announces the opening of application period for five doctoral positions, inviting applications from Greek candidates.

The Zurich Heart project is a flagship project of “Hochschulmedizin Zürich” (University Medicine Zurich) which aims to develop scientific and technical solutions to overcome current challenges. In the long run, the Zurich Heart project also aims at disruptive innovations towards developing radically new artificial heart designs and assisting the device technologies of tomorrow. Nearly 20 research groups with around 75 scientists work closely together to realize this ambitious vision.

The SNF is not involved in the process of candidate selection and evaluation, for which the University of Zurich (UZH) and the Swiss Federal Institute of Technology Zurich (ETH) are solely responsible. The applications deadline is on May 31, 2018.
