Job offers at IBETON

PhD in Structural Engineering

We have no opening of a PhD position at the present time.

Post-doctoral fellowship

We cannot host additional post-doctoral fellows at the present time, and for many months to come. If your are interested in coming to EPFL as a post-doc, and if your research interests coincide with ours, you may, however, contact us directly.

Research internships

IBETON encourages and supports research internships of its own PhD candidates in other universities (in Switerland or abroad). It also hosts PhD candidates from other research centers.
The aim of these internships is to foster learning, discussion and sharing of scintific ideas between the host and sending research teams.

For researchers from other research centers, a workplace is provided (computer, Internet access, access to the equipment and possibly the laboratory installations). The visitor will be followed by a PhD candidate, a post-doc or a lecturer. This position has no financial support, however.
