The School of Engineering of EPFL is pleased to announce the 2nd annual PhD Summit, a workshop for final year PhD students interested in a career in academia. We invite to campus, on a competitive basis, a group of exceptional graduating PhD students from institutions worldwide.

Selected candidates will be invited to the EPFL campus in Switzerland to present their research and get informal feedback from top faculty of the School of Engineering. Each accepted student will be given the opportunity to visit EPFL laboratories related to the summit theme and have intensive exchange with the lab heads and the students.

The PhD Summit prize for the best presentation and research content will be awarded during the workshop. Funds for travel and accommodation will be provided for the selected candidates. We aim at a gender balanced program, see for instance the candidates of the 1st edition. Women PhD students are thus strongly encouraged to apply.

The Engineering PhD Summit is organised by the School of Engineering, with the support of the School of Computer and Communication Sciences, the School of Life Sciences and the School of Basic Sciences.

Participation is only open to PhD students in their last year of graduation and will be selected on a very competitive basis taking into consideration the criterias.
