Prospective PhD Students

Prof. Jean-Yves Le Boudec

EPFL/LCA2 (Prof. Jean-Yves Le Boudec) is recruiting one PhD student for the EPFL deterministic networking project. Our goal is to develop replicated control points for cyber-physical systems (smart grid, intelligent vehicle) with proven delay guarantees.

Together with the power systems lab, we are building a smart grid controller on campus and plan to use it as case studies for the research results in deterministic networking.

For becoming a PhD student you can use of the two following paths

  1. be admitted to the EPFL graduate school EDIC with a fellowship. You can apply online at or here. Please inform me of your application progress in due time if you choose that path.
  2. or, be admitted to the EPFL graduate school EDIC via direct lab hiring. This requires performing an internship in my lab prior to admission to EDIC. If you choose that path and would like to perform an internship in my lab, please have a professor of yours send me a recommendation.
