Application for the LERU Doctoral Summer School 2018

What is the LERU Doctoral Summer School?

The University of Zurich is a member of the League of European Research Universities (LERU), an association of 23 leading research-intensive universities that share the values of high-quality teaching within an environment of internationally competitive research. Each year, LERU organizes a Doctoral Summer School on a specific topic. All member universities of LERU are invited to send one doctoral candidate to participate in the meeting.

Participation at the summer school is not only an academic enrichment for PhD candidates, but also gives them an opportunity to gain valuable international experiences and network with others. Last but not least, it is also a distinction for outstanding PhD candidates to represent UZH in this circle.
