Doctoral study programmes
At ETH Zurich, doctorates are not organised within an overall doctoral study programme in the way that students may be familiar with from other universities. Each doctoral student is free to select and assemble the components of their doctoral studies for him or herself. However, the departments do have the option of organising and offering their range of courses for doctoral studies in the form of doctoral programmes.
The Life Science Zurich Graduate School, for example, offers this kind of programme. There are 16 highly competitive doctoral programmes, run jointly by ETH Zurich and the University of Zurich. The aim is to attract the most promising young scientists from across the world by offering a comprehensive and challenging education for doctoral students in biosciences.

Doctoral Program in Finance
Quicklinks und sprachwechsel, main navigation.
The Department of Banking and Finance at the University of Zurich (UZH) aims at promoting young talents. It offers excellent research opportunities and doctoral training to advance the next generation of leading researchers, teachers and practitioners. The goal of the doctoral program in finance is to produce independent young researchers who can obtain academic jobs in the best universities, central banks, and international organizations as well as leading positions in the financial services industry.
Doctoral training at the Department of Banking and Finance includes a set of first year doctoral courses taught (in English) by internationally renowned scholars at UZH where students become familiar with state-of-the-art research methods. Besides providing a solid foundation in economics and econometrics, this doctoral course work covers asset pricing, banking, corporate finance and quantitative finance.
In addition, students attend advanced field courses and seminars while being attached to different research groups within the Department of Banking and Finance. A specific feature is a close attachment between graduate students and advisors and a strong team spirit among students. Students may also benefit in various ways from the well-established national collaboration among finance departments in CH through the Swiss Finance Institute . Moreover, many students spend part of their study visiting other leading international institutions in Europe and in the US.
The doctoral program at the Department of Banking and Finance offers the ideal framework for successful and inspiring PhD studies in finance.

PhD position in Climate Finance and Policy
ETH Zurich's Climate Finance and Policy Group (CFP) is seeking a doctoral candidate as part of the ERC Starting Grant project “GREENFIN – Effective green financial policies for the low-carbon transition”. We are an interdisciplinary research group investigating options for public policy and for private actors to accelerate investments in new low-carbon technologies, particularly in the energy sector.
Mitigating dangerous climate change requires a fundamental transition of global economies. This transition calls for an annual investment of 2–4 trillion USD, which is a multiple of current climate investment. Accordingly, the EU and many countries are enacting green financial policies, and intervening in the financial sector to improve financing conditions for low- carbon technologies. Examples include green state investment banks, green finance taxonomies, and changes to lending regulations. However, the effect of these financial policies on investments in non-financial sectors such as energy or transport is largely unknown, and it remains unclear how to make the best use of such policies to fill the climate finance gap. Against this backdrop, the project GREENFIN uses theory from technology innovation studies and financial/public economics and exploits large asset finance databases. Specifically, you will analyze the effectiveness of financial policy interventions in OECD countries, using quantitative empirical methods, and will study the interplay of financial policies with economy-wide climate policies and energy sector-specific interventions.
- We are looking for individuals with a master's degree, aiming to pursue a cumulative (paper-based) doctoral thesis. Relevant disciplinary fields include, but are not limited to economics, business administration, industrial engineering, public policy political science.
- Interdisciplinary individuals are welcome.
- Knowledge of climate and energy finance, and/or practical experience in the finance sphere would be a bonus.
- You should be dedicated to scientifically rigorous work that at the same time is relevant to decision-makers in the public and private sectors.
- Your working style is team-oriented, and you are proficient in English; German language skills are a plus but not a core requirement.
We offer an entrepreneurial research atmosphere within a dynamic team at continental Europe's leading research university. CFP is a very diverse group (in terms of disciplines, gender and nationalities) and strongly values inclusion. As such, we encourage all qualified candidates to apply Candidates will have the opportunity to contribute to CFPs research agenda and are encouraged to co-advise master's students.

Furthermore, we collaborate with other national and international academic and policy institutions (e.g., CMCC, MIT, the Potsdam Institute for Climate Impact Research, and the World Economic Forum). Our offices are centrally located in Zurich. The starting date is negotiable. The position is foreseen for three years. The salary is in accordance with the Swiss National Science Foundation PhD regulation.
