Doctoral student in liquid-phase scanning transmission electron microscopy (a) in Dübendorf

EMPA (European Master of Public Administration Consortium) is a network of European schools, that offer master programs in public administration.


Are you interested in fundamental aspects about the formation of functional nanoparticles and in new microscopy modalities to track individual atoms while they form such quantum dots? As a PhD candidate, you will explore the atomic-scale particle formation processes by means of in situ experiments performed on an aberration-corrected microscope. Based on the knowledge gained, you will develop new approaches for efficient, well-controllable synthesis routes for metallic nanoparticles and complex quantum dots. Since the ionic liquids are, apart from their outstanding properties as solvents, also useful for reaching high resolution in LP-STEM, you will identify such liquids that are optimal for both aspects. Therefore, you will not only be responsible for elaborating new custom-tailored synthesis strategies, but also for applying and further developing cutting-edge LP-STEM methods.
We are looking for a highly motivated, ambitious and proactive candidate who is excited to pursue her/his own PhD project with a high level of commitment. 

Required qualifications include a Master's degree in materials science, chemistry, physics or a related discipline. Basic experience in (scanning) transmission electron microscopy and nanoparticle synthesis are advantageous but not strictly required. We are looking for an open-minded and communicative candidate with excellent English skills.
We look forward to receiving your complete online application including a letter of motivation, CV, certificates, diplomas and contact details of two reference persons. Please submit these exclusively via our job portal. Applications by e-mail and by post will not be considered.
