The EPFL Fellows international postdoctoral fellowship programme will fund 24 fellowships of a maximum duration of 24 months each year/call. EPFL Fellows fellowships may be held in any scientific discipline within the EPFL. Applications should be made jointly with the Fellow’s mentor, a senior scientist at EPFL. EPFL Fellows conduct their own research within the framework of the proposed project. The EPFL Fellows fellowships can only be carried out in Switzerland, at the EPFL campus in Lausanne, Neuchâtel, Valais or Fribourg. The duration of an EPFL Fellows fellowship is 24 months and cannot be prolonged. Employment after the initially granted time must be financed from other sources.
EPFL fellowships may be held in any scientific discipline within the EPFL. Fellowships are available for researchers in all disciplines that are covered by the research of the EPFL host professors: Architecture, Civil Engineering, Environmental Sciences and Engineering, Computer Science, Communication Systems (unique in Switzerland), Mathematical Sciences, Physics, Chemical and biological Engineering, Micro Engineering, Electrical and Electronics Engineering, Materials Science, Mechanical Engineering, Life Sciences and Technologies; complemented by the programs of the College of Management of Technology and the College of Humanity (with the collaboration of other universities). Candidates choose freely their host laboratory and project, in order to maximize their new experience and the advancement in their scientific career.
Fellowships are available for pursuing postdoctoral research program.

The EPFL Fellows fellowship consists of a monthly contribution of 2’625 Euro to the salary of the post-doc at EPFL. The remaining part of the salary is provided by the hosting Professor. It is therefore important that the research plan is developed in cooperation with the Principal Investigator at EPFL. You should contact the Human Resources of the hosting research department to inquire about the basic salary level, which includes social benefits such as AVS (pension scheme), and AC (unemployment insurance) and family allocations.
