1. Find a supervisor: If you are interested in becoming a PhD student at Swiss TPH, please be aware that finding a supervisor is the most important step for prospective candidates. Swiss TPH does not offer PhD student fellowships, rather, PhD students are funded through projects, led by potential supervisors. Students may also be funded by competitive external fellowships to which they apply on their own. In both cases, a Swiss TPH supervisor is required for eligibility. Please explore the Swiss TPH website to find a field or team of interest and relevance to you.
2. Documentation: Please send a detailed motivation letter and current CV to firstname.lastname@example.org. In the motivation letter, specify any plans to apply for externally funded fellowships or whether you expect to be funded through our projects.
After a first departmental screening, unsolicited applications will be shared with all potential supervisors at Swiss TPH. You will be notified directly if an opportunity is available and asked to submit further information. Please do not send your applications to Swiss TPH scientists, directly.
