Position Description:    

*** this position has been closed, and no new applications will be accepted. ***

The Theoretical Particle Physics Laboratory (LPTP) at the Institute of Physics of the Ecole Polytechnique Fédérale de Lausanne invites applications for three Ph.D. fellowships. Preference will be given to candidates with a solid basis in theoretical physics. Two positions will be financed by the SNF grant "New Opportunities at the Energy Frontier" (P.I. A.Wulzer). For these ones, skills and inclination towards particle phenomenology is required. The preferred starting date is Fall 2018, and the duration is 4 years. Candidates should have obtained a Master in Physics by the starting date.

The LPTP is headed by Riccardo Rattazzi and comprises Andrea Wulzer as CERN/EPFL joint staff member. Research areas include quantum field theory, high-energy phenomenology, physics beyond the standard model, and cosmological aspects of particle physics. All the groups working in particle physics at EPFL have strong ties with nearby CERN (

Applications should contain a motivation letter, a research statement, a curriculum vitae, a list of all the exams with marks, and at least three recommendation letters. A copy of the Master thesis can be optionally included if already completed.
