(03) PhD Degree – Fully Funded

PhD position summary/title: PhD position in Aerosol technologies for bioaerosol sampling, detection and risk management

The research is related to development of aerosol technologies for bioaerosol sampling, detection and risk management. Bioaerosols, including airborne bacteria, viruses, fungi, and fragments of these organisms pose risks to human. Even minute amounts of inhaled bioaerosols may cause adverse health impacts such as infectious diseases, allergic diseases, reactions to toxins or irritants. Emerging hazardous components such as antibiotic resistance genes and metal resistance genes highlight the evolving risks due to bioaerosols. Our group is engaged in development of various sensors targeting biological pollutants, which has strong synergy with aerosol technologies for bioaerosol sampling, detection and control.

(04) PhD Degree – Fully Funded

PhD position summary/title: Doctoral student in transmission electron microscopy studies of ferroelectric multilayers

The aim of this project is to investigate engineered polarization discontinuities in ferroelectric heterostructures by probing them at atomic resolution. For this purpose advanced transmission electron microscopy techniques (e.g. aberration-corrected STEM, STEM-DPC, 4D-STEM, EELS and EDX) will be used. A substantial part of this position involves the development and/or implementation of new image analysis methods. The project will be carried out in close collaboration with the Laboratory for Multifunctional Ferroic Materials at ETH Zürich, Prof. Dr. Morgan Trassin. The PhD student will be enrolled at ETH Zürich in the Department of Materials.

(07) PhD Degree – Fully Funded

PhD position summary/title: PhD position on the “combinatorial development of multi-functional ceramic thin films”

The development of many next-generation technologies requires thin films and coatings, which exhibit more than one functionality. In this research project, we are targeting the development of novel ceramic thin film materials that are capable of this feat. Such materials may combine favorable mechanical properties, such as high hardness or scratch-resistance, with other functionalities. These can range from high transparency and electrical conductivity to their chemical stability or even their piezoelectric response. Applications of such coatings range from simple optical components such as lenses to more complex devices such as MEMS or displays. The materials of interest for this study mainly include ternary and quaternary nitrides and oxynitrides. Simultaneously optimizing multiple functional properties in these materials is a complex challenge with many variables. To accelerate this process you will employ high-throughput combinatorial materials science techniques.

(09) PhD Degree – Fully Funded

PhD position summary/title: Two doctoral students in scanning transmission electron microscopy (a)

The goal of the first project is to explore 4D-STEM (scanning transmission electron microscopy) modalities using an aberration-corrected microscope equipped with an energy filter and a fast, direct electron detector. You will be responsible for innovative, experimental studies aiming at phase and/or strain mapping, differential phase contrast imaging and energy-filtered electron ptychography employing new experimental approaches. As the data sets collected by 4D-STEM are large, an important aspect of the project is data handling and data analysis. You will also coordinate collaborations with internal and external research groups. In addition, simulations can be carried out to complement the experimental part of the project. The second project aims at advancing the understanding of current nanoparticle synthesis routes and at developing alternative pathways for nanoparticles production in ionic liquids, e.g. to effi-ciently produce quantum dots. To study particle formation processes in situ and at the atomic scale, you will perform liquid phase scanning transmission electron microscopy (LP-STEM) experiments on an aberration-corrected microscope. Since the ionic liquids are, besides 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 exploring new custom-tailored synthesis strategies, but also for further development of the experimental approach.

(11) PhD Degree – Fully Funded

PhD position summary/title: Ph.D. position on: “Innovative and Advanced Slab Systems using Digital Fabrication Technologies”

Traditional formwork for reinforced concrete structures can account for up to 50% of the total construction cost and 75% of the total construction time and is a major source of wastage in construction as it is often made of timber that is eventually discarded after a few time usage. To overcome the disadvantages of traditional formwork, this cutting-edge project concerns the development of an advanced slab system comprising a geometrically optimized stay-in-place 3D printed concrete formwork and cast-in-place reinforced concrete topping. It is anticipated that the developed system would lead to the construction of lightweight buildings with large material and labor cost savings and may serve as a stepping-stone towards digitization of the construction industry. Within this project, you will develop methods for prestressing 3D printed concrete formwork to improve its load-carrying capacity. Your work will entail the implementation of topology optimization methods on formwork to manufacture slabs with free-form geometries. The project involves finite element modeling, analytical solutions, small- and large-scale experiments for the structural evaluation of the developed slab system. The project aims to culminate in a large-scale pilot application.
