A fully funded master by research is being offered by the University of Malta in collaboration with the Paul Scherrer Institute (PSI). PSI is the largest multidisciplinary research centre in Switzerland with 4500 international scientists using its facilities, an annual budget of €342 million per year and an overall capital investment of more than €2 billion.
PSI will be launching its new flagship project this year: the SwissFEL. This is a state of the art machine that is planned to perform Nobel level ground-breaking experiments in the composition of matter. This multidisciplinary master by research is in the field of instrumentation, measurement, data analysis and modelling and is specifically designed to be applicable to local industry.
This master by research project entails spending a number of months at PSI, in scenic Switzerland and a number of months at the University of Malta. Electrical Engineering, Computer Engineering and Physics students are eligible to apply. This is an excellent opportunity to be part of a project with access to significant research resources. Beyond the outstanding first-class scientific value of the research project, the selected students will find collaborating in a multidisciplinary and multicultural environment an extremely enriching personal experience. There are no pre-requisite modules for application and tailor made training will be made available to the successful candidate.
All expenses (including travel and living expenses) will be covered by the scholarship. Total scholarship value is about €13,500 most of which can be used to cover living expenses.
