3 Fully Funded PhD scholarships at the Swiss Federal Institute of Technology Lausanne (EPFL), Switzerland

Study in Switzerland

Attention Master's Graduates: Fully Funded PhD scholarships Available in Environmental Sciences, Physics, Engineering, and more.

EPFL University is inviting applications to fill 3 PhD. Positions in multiple disciplines that are fully Funded. Below we provide a list of available positions with short description. For further details about the positions click on each individual link of interest. Good luck!


Project Description:

When magnetic interactions in a material are competing, it is termed “frustrated” and many exotic quantum properties may occur. This PhD project is focused on investigating and tuning of phases of such frustrated quantum magnets by using extreme conditions of low temperatures and high pressures. The candidate will perform inelastic neutron scattering experiments on cold and thermal neutron spectrometers at the ILL as well as use supporting techniques such as synchrotron X-ray diffraction and specific heat measurements at the LQM.

Application Deadline: June 1st, 2024


Project Description:

Sustainable food production requires finding the right balance between food and nutritional security while protecting the environment and addressing climate issues. Climate‐smart agriculture has been promoted as a systematic approach for developing agricultural strategies that ensure food security in the context of climate change.

The SMART-AGRI project aims to quantify the benefits of different climate-smart practices across global cropland areas, and identify the combinations of practices that concurrently optimize multiple objectives (from crop production to climate change mitigation and preservation of environmental resources). As a PhD student, you will have the opportunity to further current understanding in this field through a combination of data analysis, numerical model development, and global-scale simulations of coupled water, energy, carbon, and nutrient dynamics under current and future climates.

Application Deadline: Open until filled


Project Description:

A PhD position is available in Prof. Zhengmao Lu’s Energy Transport Advances Laboratory (ETA-LAB) in the Institute of Mechanical Engineering at EPFL, Switzerland. At the ETA-LAB (, we strive to obtain a deeper understanding of liquid-gas interfacial heat and mass transfer and create high-performance, low-carbon-emission energy and water technologies.

Application Deadline: Open until filled.
