EDNE Candidatures

Faites une thèse EPFL en Neurosciences!

April 15th (new!)  with Hiring Days June 19-21 and

November 15th  with Hiring Days January 22-24 2020

On-line Application

EDNE PhD Program application process

  • Check out the open positions (see below) – Contact the lab offering the open position.
  • On-line application here.
  • Please select a minimum of 3 up to a maximum of five (5) Labs of interest on the on-line application. This is especially important if the lab has posted an open position below and is mandatory for our selection process.
  • If your dossier is reviewed positively by the PhD program commission members, you will be selected to participate in the Hiring Days.
  • EDNE does not require TOEFL or GRE, however, a master’s is necessary before starting a PhD.
  • Which Deadline??  If you are selected at either of the Hiring Days (2nd round of selection with interviews) , your offer is good for one year.  You will then negotiate with your thesis director an official start date sometime during that year and begin your course work at the next appropriate time.  There is no official start date tied to the application deadlines.

OPEN POSITIONS for the April 15th deadline

  1. Herzog Laboratory of Psychophysics – 1 position – We are looking for a student interested in spatio-temporal visual processing. A good background in psychophysics, modeling or imaging (eg EEG) is required.
  2. Ramdya Laboratory of Neuroengineering – 2 positions – Investigation of the nervous system of the fly, Drosophila melanogaster, to understand how behaviors are controlled and to design more intelligent robots and prosthetics.  Everyday we use custom microscopes, transgenic animals, computational models, and insect-inspired robots. Join us! There is much to discover!
  3. Sandi Laboratory of Behavioral Genetics – 2 positions
