The research project aim at investigating the effect of solute atoms in the deformation twinning mechanisms of hcp alloys through the development of novel in situ testing experiments combined with advanced characterization techniques for strains, stresses and dislocation analyses at the nanoscale. This includes the development of high resolution electron backscatter diffraction (HR-EBSD + 3D HR-EBSD), high resolution transmission kikuchi diffraction (HR-TKD), as well as the precession electron diffraction (PED) in the transmission electron microscope (TEM) during nano-mechanical testing. In parallel to single and polycrystalline materials investigations, synthesis of hcp alloys will be done by advanced combinatorial physical vapor deposition (PVD) techniques.
You must hold a Master’s or an equivalent Degree in Materials Science, Mechanical Engineering or similar. A high motivation to work at the leading edge of measurement science and to work in an international, multidisciplinary research team is essential. Knowledge of English (oral and written) is important and knowledge of German or French would be an advantage. Experience in nanomechanical testing techniques (nanoindentation, micropillar compression), electron microscopy based techniques (SEM, FIB and TEM), physical vapor deposition, as well as programming (e.g. Matlab, Python or C++) is desirable.
