Open Positions


At DCML we are always looking for people who share our fascination for music, musical structure and the human musical mind. Our research projects are strongly interdisciplinary. We welcome candidates with backgrounds in:

  • musicology, music theory, or linguistics
  • psychology, cognitive science, or neuroscience
  • computer science, machine learning, data science and mathematical modelling
  • … or related fields

There are several ways to work with us. We often announce paid student assistant and internship opportunities. We also welcome expressions of interest for supervised semester projects or final MA and BA theses.

PhD positions open on a regular basis. At EPFL all PhD students are fully paid employees. Therefore each PhD position has to be supported by internal or externally funded projects, or by PhD scholarships. We announce openings as soon as they become available.

If you are strongly interested in our research, feel free to get in contact even if we may not have a current opening.
