PhD Position in Structural Engineering


For a research project on the seismic response of stone masonry buildings, the Earthquake Engineering and Structural Dynamics Laboratory of EPFL ( http://eesd.epfl.ch/ ) invites applications for a PhD position. For the seismic analysis of masonry buildings, accurate predictions of the in-plane displacement capacity of unreinforced masonry walls are required. The objective of the project is to develop mechanical models for the deformation capacity of stone masonry walls. The project will comprise large-scale experimental tests as well as the development of analytical models.


Your profile

  • You have a Master's Degree in civil or structural engineering
  • A strong background in mechanics is required
  • Knowledge in earthquake engineering and structural masonry is of advantage but not mandatory
  • You are proficient in spoken and written English


We offer

A challenging position at EPFL with outstanding infrastructure and an international working environment. The position is funded. For further information see phd.epfl.ch/edce .


Application procedure

If you are interested in this position, please send your motivation letter, CV and all university records as a single pdf-file to Katrin Beyer ( katrin.beyer@epfl.ch). Applicants should also apply in parallel to the doctoral program in Civil and Environmental Engineering ( http://phd.epfl.ch/edce ) or Mechanics ( http://phd.epfl.ch/edme ).

The position is open until filled.
