• Post-doc’s positions at Empa, in Switzerland

    Empa is the research institute for materials science and technology of the ETH Domain and conducts cutting-edge research for the benefit of industry and the well-being of society.

    The Laboratory for Mechanics of Materials and Nanostructures is looking for :

    - Post-doc’s in the field of mechanical properties of thin films and miniature components:

    Your tasks:

    You will work on research projects funded by the InnoSuisse agency and by large scale European programs to scientifically explore mechanical properties of thin films and miniature components. The project is in close collaboration with a former start-up company on the same campus that develops nanomechanical testing equipment for extreme testing conditions of variable temperature and high speeds. You’ll be involved in a number of projects running in other groups of the laboratory that aim at the synthesis of novel thin films based on atomic layer deposition, physical vapor deposition or electrochemical deposition techniques, that engineer miniature components such as watch or MEMS components or that manufacture miniature components via 3D printing approaches. Outstanding candidates will also be given the opportunity to apply to a number of prestigious fellowships during their employment at Empa.

    Your profile:

    You must hold a PhD in Physics, Materials Science, Mechanical Engineering, Microengineering or similar. Experience in one or more of the following techniques is a requirement: nanoindentation, small scale mechanical testing such as microcompression testing, finite element simulations. A high motivation to work at the leading edge of measurement science and to work in international and multidisciplinary research teams are essential. Knowledge of English (oral and written) is important and knowledge of German would be an advantage.

    For further information about the position please contact: Dr. Johann Michler, Johann.Michler@empa.ch and visit the following websites: www.empa.ch/web/s206

    Online application including a letter of motivation, CV, diplomas with transcripts and contact details of two referees. Please upload the requested documents through the webpage. Applications via email will not be considered.
