Materials Science Chemistry PhD Job @ Empa | Switzerland

PhD position: Synthesis and dynamical in-situ X-ray diffraction and scattering studies on advanced fiber systems and functional crystalline matter

 

Polymer processing methods such as the electrospinning technique will be employed in this interdisciplinary PhD project which combines physics, material sciences, engineering and X-ray diffraction (XRD) studies. In the latest, in-situ (SAXS, XRD) studies based on the combination of structural analysis with applied external fields such as temperature, humidity or mechanical load will lead to a better understanding of materials and system performances. Synergies with microscopy methods such as TEM and other X-ray based methods such as X-ray µ-Computed Tomography (µ-CT) and / or Phase Contrast Imaging (XPCI) will be used.

Desired profile

  • Completed Master`s degree in chemistry, physics or materials science.
  • Previous experience with Small Angle X-ray Scattering SAXS and X-ray diffraction XRD.
  • Additional skills and expertise in mechanical engineering and electronics would be appreciated.
  • Highly motivated, communicative and interest in interdisciplinary research.

Language skills: English, German (advantageous)

Project duration of 3 years is planned in order to carry out the above research tasks in form of a PhD thesis. The project is supported by Empa and the Swiss National Science Foundation, and the candidate will perform his research at Empa in St. Gallen. Desired starting date is 1st of October 2016 or upon mutual agreement.

For further information please contact Dr. René Rossi, rene.rossi@empa.ch.

We are looking forward to receiving your online application including a motivation letter, CV, copies of diplomas and names and addresses of references.
