ENAC – PhD Position in Human-Oriented Sustainable Built Environments

ENAC

ETHOS (Civil Engineering and Technology for Human Oriented Sustainability) is a new lab at EPFL directed by Prof. Andrew Sonta. At ETHOS, we use data, engineering, and design to advance social and environmental sustainability in cities. We are seeking a PhD student to conduct research focused on furthering our understanding of the complex relationships between (…)

ENAC – PhD position in Modelling Urban Systems

ENAC

Your mission:The Laboratory of Urban and Environmental Systems (URBES) at EPFL is looking for a PhD student to investigate how anthropogenic activities and the form/function of cities affect climate and hydrology, as well as energy consumption, emissions, and residents’ wellbeing. At the URBES Lab we seek to describe and predict land-atmosphere interactions and coupled human-natural (…)

ENAC – PhD Position on energy transition in socio-technical systems

ENAC

We are offering a 100% PhD researcher position for 4 years on energy transition in socio-technical systems at the Laboratory for Human-Environment Relations in Urban Systems (HERUS), School of Architecture, Civil and Environmental Engineering (ENAC), at the Swiss Federal Institute of Technology (EPFL) in Lausanne, Switzerland.

ENAC – PhD position to investigate the coevolution of topography and vegetation

ENAC

Your mission: The Catchment Hydrology and Geomorphology Lab (CHANGE) led by Prof. Sara Bonetti at EPFL in Sion is looking for a PhD student to investigate the coevolution of topography and vegetation under variable climate. Feedbacks among vegetation, topographic development, and pedogenesis affect the hydrologic, biogeochemical, and sediment cycles. Quantifying such feedbacks is key to (…)

ENAC – PhD Position in Soil Biogeochemistry

ENAC

We are offering a fully funded, four-year PhD position in the Soil Biogeochemistry Laboratory (SOIL) at the Ecole Polytechnique Fédérale of Lausanne (EPFL), Switzerland. The SOIL aims to understand the fundamental principles and processes that govern the biogeochemical cycling of key elements in soils. It forms part of EPFL’s new Alpine and Polar Environments Research (…)

ENAC – PhD position in the Laboratory of Experimental Rock Mechanics

ENAC

We are offering one fully-funded, 4-year PhD position in the Laboratory of Experimental Rock Mechanics at the Ecole Polytechnique Fédérale of Lausanne (EPFL), Switzerland. PhD Project: Earthquakes mechanics at the Brittle to Ductile transition. We will experimentally study earthquake mechanics at conditions representative of the brittle to ductile transition in the earth curst, i.e confining (…)
