Depending on your interests and background, there are a range of possibilities to join ELLIS:
Becoming an ELLIS Fellows or an ELLIS Scholars
ELLIS Fellows are high-caliber senior researchers who advance science and act as ambassadors of ELLIS. ELLIS Scholars are outstanding junior scientists - often assistant professors - who do not yet have the seniority of a Fellow but who are on a clear trajectory to reach this level. ELLIS Fellows and ELLIS Scholars need to undergo a nomination and selection process in order to join ELLIS. For more information about this process, check out this page or contact ELLIS.
Becoming an ELLIS Member
If you are a scientist with a PhD or equivalent degree and believe your work is relevant for ELLIS, if you publish regularly at top tier venues in machine learning driven fields, and if you work in Europe, are European (working elsewhere) or have some other relation to Europe, then there is the opportunity to join ELLIS as a member.

Becoming an ELLIS PhD or Postdoc
There are two ways to become an ELLIS PhD student or postdoc: (a) via our central application process (if you want to start a PhD with one of the ELLIS Fellows/Scholars or unit faculty); (b) via a nomination process (if you’re already working with one of the ELLIS Fellows/Scholars or unit faculty as a PhD or postdoc).
