Studierende finden an der ETH Zürich ein Umfeld, das eigenständiges Denken fördert, Forschende ein Klima, das zu Spitzenleistungen inspiriert.
The Laboratory of Soft Materials at ETH Zurich is looking for a motivated and enthusiastic student, willing to take on a challenging project in the area of colloidal materials. The goal is to study the structure property relations in colloidal gels, with the main goal to elucidate the effects of local scale forces (including noncentral forces) on the rheological properties of such suspensions. The project will be a collaboration between the Laboratory of Soft Materials (Prof. Vermant) and the Laboratory of Soft Materials and Interfaces (Prof. Isa). Starting form unique and well defined model particles, state of the art rheological methods (including superposition and high frequency rheology) and ultrafast confocal micrscopy, we intend to obtain a deeper understanding of such complex, thixotropic materials with the goal to improve their performance.
During the PhD studies you should becomen an expert on colloidal synthesis and characterization, advanced image processing and rheological investigations.The set of competences you acquire should enable you to continue on an academic track, but should also set you up for a career in an industrial environment.
The main duties will be to work towoards a PhD degree through research. In addition contributions to the functioning of the laboratory and teaching may be expected up to a maximum of 20% of your time.
A masters degree in materials science and engineering, chemical engineering, mechanical engineering, physics or chemistry or equivalent is required. A good background in transport phenomena, image processing, soft matter and rheology are a plus.
We look forward to receiving your online application with the following documents: CV, grades, motivation letter and the names and addresses of two referees. Please note that we exclusively accept applications submitted through our online application portal. Applications via email or postal services will not be considered.
