PhD Position in Experimental Condensed Matter Physics

The Laboratory of Nanostrucrures and Novel Electronic Materials at the Swiss Federal Institute of Technology in Lausanne (Ecole Polytechnique Fédérale de Lausanne, EPFL) invites applications for a Ph.D. position in experimental solid state physics. The successful candidate will use electrical transport measurements (resistivity, Hall-effect and thermopower) under high pressure to study novel electronic materials like high temperature superconductors, manganites, vanadates etc. Further information on the laboratory can be obtained at

An M.S. or M.A. in physics is required. Preference will be given to candidates with a strong undergraduate background condensed matter physics and experience in laboratory work. Since the language used at the doctoral school of EPFL is English, applicants whose first language is not English should demonstrate their English proficiency. Working knowledge of French is an advantage.
The appointment is for up to four years during which a Ph.D. thesis must be completed. The Ph.D. stipend is SFr. 50,000 per year. More information about the doctoral program at EPFL can be found at:

Interested candidates should submit an application with a curriculum vitae, names and contact information of three references, and a brief description of research interests. The most qualified candidates will be invited for an on-site interview at EPFL. The applications should be sent to:
