Postdoctoral Fellows at EPFL

Postdocs are crucial for EPFL’s world-class research and a vital part of the EPFL’s research community. There are just over 1’000 working in EPFL. Take advantage of all the resources that are available to you!

During your postdoctoral stay at EPFL, several funding opportunities are available to you. Find the best way to fund your stay, your future independent research, or obtain an award!

A postdoctoral fellowship is temporary, so it is never too early to start thinking about the next step. Ideally, you should begin your postdoctoral training by discussing your research and career plans with your host professor.


The association works closely with the EPFL Central Services to build community among postdocs and provide opportunities for professional growth and development.

Obtain support and advise in developing your research proposal.
