​PhD research

Liten welcomes top students passionate about conducting research to move the energy and ecological transitions forward.

A pillar of the academic research ecosystem

Grenoble is a major center for both technology and higher education. The city is home to more than 62,000 students, and around 15% of the student population is international. Together, Grenoble's government and private-sector labs employ 22,000 researchers. Liten is a pillar of this ecosystem. The institute also enjoys a prime location near exceptional scientific instruments like the European Synchrotron Radiation Facility or ESRF (one of the world's most powerful synchrotrons), and Institut Laue-Langevin (ILL), home to extremely brilliant neutron beamlines used for spectroscopy.

Research and innovation for carbon-free energy systems and the environment

At Liten, PhD students conduct research to support the growth of renewable energy and the development of high-yield, low-carbon energy technologies and systems. The circular economy informs all research at Liten and efforts are made to reduce environmental impacts.  

Liten is home to ten world-class labs and digital technology platforms that PhD students can utilize for their research.

PhD research topics align with Liten's strategic R&D programs. A total of 60% of Liten researchers started here as PhD students, evidence of the value our PhD students bring to our organization.

If working on today's major scientific challenges and developing technologies for tomorrow's world sound exciting to you, apply for one of our PhD openings today.
