Ethereum Protocol Fellowship: The Third Cohort


Do you enjoy solving interesting and challenging problems? Are you interested in getting involved at the most foundational level of the Ethereum protocol?

The Protocol Support Team (EF) is excited to announce that applications are now being accepted for the third cohort of the Ethereum Protocol Fellowship (formerly Core Developer Apprenticeship Program (CDAP))!

With the Merge closing in (58750000000000000000000 🥳), Ethereum core developers are looking forward to the next steps in the protocol’s development and there is a need for qualified and committed people to help create an increasingly powerful and robust Ethereum network.

Enter the Ethereum Protocol Fellowship.

What is the Ethereum Protocol Fellowship (EPF)?

The EPF is a program designed to onboard developers to the process through which protocol development happens. It is an opportunity to dive deep into the protocol and learn while also working closely with others on the same learning trajectory as well as the core development community.

Core protocol development isn’t easy work, but it is interesting, challenging, and rewarding. Unfortunately, this work also has a very large barrier to entry. It requires a high degree of fluency in the actual protocols themselves. It requires a deep understanding of many different engineering concepts. It requires excellent written and verbal communication skills. The intention of this program is to provide an easier onramp for getting past these barriers, and to provide the initial support and guidance to launch you into working side by side with core devs.


Past Cohorts

EPF has previously hosted two successful cohorts. In that time, past cohort members have:

  • Worked on an alternate method of documenting and specifying the Ethereum protocol.
  • Researched how we can modify or remove the SELFDESTRUCT opcode
  • Helped build ZKSync
  • Built out new peer-to-peer networks for the Portal Network.
  • Wrote their own implementation of the EVM
  • 10 cohort alumni now work full-time on core protocol development and 5 others work in adjacent areas of the industry.

Have a Real Impact

Core protocol development is a key role in caring for and improving the multi-billion dollar Ethereum protocol; a protocol that we believe will play a key role in creating a more fair and equitable future for humanity. Want to join us in building a future you can get excited about?
