The doctoral program in chemistry and chemical engineering provide an educational and research environment in chemical sciences and engineering. The chemical sciences are of vital importance in the modern world, and the research undertaken in our Institute spans fundamental studies in theoretical chemistry and biochemistry to applications in devices and engineering. We aim for top international level.The links on this page should help to provide a more detailed picture of our Institute and reveal that it is exciting environment in which to conduct research in the chemical sciences and engineering. Our doctoral program admits students directly after Master degree or exceptionally after a 4-year Bachelor's degree. The duration of the program is 4 years, and admission is on a competitive basis. We have actually over 200 PhD students registered. The program is entirely in English.
Candidates are invited to submit their applications prior to January 15, April 30th or September 15th.EPFL has an attractive campus, offering many sports activities. Lausanne is a lively and well-connectedcity in the center of Europe, close to the Swiss Alps.
We also have a permanent EPFL outpost in Valais, centered on new professor’s chairs, in the fields of energy and health research. Part of the research will focus on the hydrodynamics of turbomachinery in order to optimise one of the Valais’major energy production methods, as well as on water management and optimal use of lakes and rivers. Other research will be devoted to green chemistry (biomass from agricultural areas, CO2 capture and processing, etc.)
