Forgot, the following link lists PhD positions, like job openings

http://www.telejob.ethz.ch/telejob/offers.xml

The universities also post PhD position on monster.ch, sometimes

Other job openings are found on university portals (for example in Bern it's http://www.jobs.unibe.ch). A page with links for academic jobs is on www.myscience.ch. There is diplom.ch with jobs for students and graduates as well.

The reason i think this focus on the "uniqueness" of research makes my goal harder in Switzerland is that it is traditionally scientific methodology being applied in an interpretivist paradigm. I've seen some signs of more holistic, interdisciplinary (dare i say 'postmodern'?) work going on here but less acceptable than i was used to on my Masters in England.
I also studied in the UK and am looking for a PHD place and also have the same problem as you - just in a different subject. I can't really help you at all, but I thought my experience might make you feel less lonely

Re: PHD in Switzerland?

I am confused as you , and I have done some of this stuff. this sounds like BS bingo :

"This is very much getting into trying to not give into the complexities of sociopolitical decision situations but to try and facilitate the management of them."

That sounds even more unclear than before for me .

Are you trying to say that given the dynamism of "sociopolitical decision situation" and the "uniqueness of stakeholders' values" you need to develop each time a new "decision model" ?

Re: PHD in Switzerland?

I have to agree. Clear it isn't. I suggest reading a few of the wonderful Cosma Shalizi's notebooks (there's only one Cosma, but 400 notebooks). He knows how to explain complexity, social networks, Monte Carlo & more statistics than you can eat. Also has the best and rudest review of the awful "A new Kind of Science".

Other suggestions: 1) the excellent Didier Sornette, statistical physicist turned "Professor of entrepreneurial (?) risk" at ETHZ. He must be busy these days! 2) University of Fribourg has a famous department of econophysics.

Re: PHD in Switzerland?

I'm reading the funding <4000k/mo figures that are being described for full-time Phd work and they seem awfully low.

Is anyone out there performing commercial research for Phd, DSc, DBA or similar and combining it with getting paid by a commercial enterprise, at a decent rate ? This obviously if you have the requisite professional work experience to start with. Someone told me the other day that they are continuing a proper job 3 days a week and doing Phd stuff the other two...
