Due to the spreading of the Coronavirus, the 2020 edition has been postponed to a later date in 2021

Applicants have to provide a copy of their CV, a list of publications, and a one-page research statement describing the PhD work and how it relates to « Engineering for Sustainability » as well as the chosen subtopic.

Applicants also need to provide two referees which will be contacted separately to provide letters of recommendation:

  • The first referee must be the candidate’s PhD advisor. The reference letter must clearly state the graduation date of the candidate
  • The second referee can be chosen freely by the candidate but should be involved in the PhD research work

Candidates have to ensure that the referees will submit their letters 2 weeks after the candidacy submission. We will only consider complete applications where the two reference letters have been provided before this deadline.

  • Application deadline for candidates: TBA
  • Deadline for referees to upload their reference letter: TBA
  • Announcement of successful applicants: TBA
  • Engineering PhD Summit at EPFL: Date to be announced in 2021
