Doctoral Study Program
The Computer Science Department’s goal is to educate students to become mature researchers and future leaders in the field of computer science. Doctoral students are part of a body of bright, talented and highly motivated scientists collaborating in research groups. Admission is highly competitive due to a large number of candidates and very few openings. The rewarding work experience is complemented by a competitive salary that comfortably covers the living expenses in Switzerland. Typically, the completion of a PhD degree takes 4-5 years.
Openings for PhD positions are posted on the webpages of individual faculty members and their groups. However, even if positions are not announced, our faculty always welcome applications from excellent PhD students. There are no deadlines for such applications. Applications via our online application system are always accepted and will be exposed to all computer science faculty members.
