Two PhD positions in signal processing of gravitational waves recordings

Seismology and Geodynamics group (SEG) and Exploration and Environmental Geophysics (EEG) group at ETH Zurich (Institute of Geophysics, Department of Earth Sciences, Swiss Federal Institute of Technology) have an openings for two PhD candidates in the field of geophysical signal processing of gravitational waves recordings.


Project Description: With the motivation of exploiting the analogies between seismological and GW sensing, the two PhD projects aim at creating a bridge between the scientific communities of gravitational waves astrophysicists and earth scientists. The PhD students will explore the possibility of applying research methodology and data analysis procedures that are routinely used in seismology as well as newly designed signal processing techniques to the analysis of LISA data. The two PhD students will work in an interdisciplinary team together with researchers from the ETH SEG and EEG groups, the ETH Aerospace Electronics and Instruments Laboratory (AEIL), and experts in General Relativity and Gravitational Wave Astronomy from the University of Zürich and University Paris Diderot (France).


  1. Hold a Master’s degree in geophysics, physics, applied mathematics, or similar fields,
  2. Should have a keen interest in geophysical signal processing, inversion theory and physics.

Good knowledge of English is essential.

We offer
a dynamic working environment with highly qualified scientists and excellent computational facilities. In addition, the PhD students will have access to high-performance computing systems owned by ETH. The Institute of Geophysics group at ETH Zurich is embedded in a vibrant Earth Science department, which will offer many opportunities for collaborative projects.

 Application Procedure:

Send your online application with the following documents: motivation letter, Curriculum Vitae and the names and addresses of three referees. Applications are accepted until the positions are filled. Applications sent by e-mail or post will not be considered.
