(01) Postdoctoral Fellowship Position

Postdoc Fellowship Position summary/title: Postdoctoral Researcher/Scientist in the field of HiPIMS process development

In this project, we aim to develop new HiPIMS processes for the synthesis of functional, metastable thin films, particularly nitrides. The phase formation during reactive sputter deposition depends on many parameters. Due to the complexity of the pulsed sputtering process, a deep understanding of the physical processes in the deposition system is important. To this end, we will develop models and simulate the process using multi-physics software. The results of these simulations will be validated using state-of-the-art process diagnostics as well as material characterization techniques. The objective is to understand and exploit the synthesis-structure-property relationships in reactive HiPIMS to create new thin film materials with tailored functionality.

(02) Postdoctoral Fellowship Position

Postdoc Fellowship Position summary/title: Postdoc position in the area of Bacteria and Materials interactions

The scope of the position is to investigate bacterial mechanosensing and bacteria&materials interactions in general, with the final goal of developing novel antimicrobial materials.The objectives include physicochemical characterization of bacterial mutants and material properties, using microfluidics platform to investigate the bacteria and surface interaction at single-cell level, and identification of the mode of mechanisms used by bacteria for mechanosensing and the effect of the material properties on the sensing. The work should contribute to a fundamental understanding of how bacteria sense a surface and what influences the involved sensing system. The results should be communicated in peer-reviewed well-known scientific journals.

(03) Postdoctoral Fellowship Position

Postdoc Fellowship Position summary/title: 2 year postdoc / scientist position in the field of mid-IR laser absorption spectroscopy

The project aims at the development and field application of a high-precision, miniaturized mid-IR spectrometer. You will leverage on our previous work for drone based methane measurement to design a multi-species, lightweight instrument that can be carried by UAVs to quantify the emissions of large ship engines off-shore and in the harbour. This involves developments in the laboratory and field campaigns, both in close collaboration with our partners Alpes Lasers, ALTUS LSA and METIS Baltic.

(05) Postdoctoral Fellowship Position

Postdoc Fellowship Position summary/title: PostDoc fellowship in the area of bioengineering / mechanobiology

The group aims at identifying key patterns of mechanotransduction enabling the cell adaption to local physical environments, how these may change upon senescence, and whether, based on this knowledge, strategies can be developed to recover specific features of young cells. You will contribute to the group efforts in exploring the effects of fluid flow and mechanical environment on the behavior of cells using in vitro microfluidic devices. You will explore how different types of mechanical factors impact on the control of the homeostasis of endothelial tissues and how such regulation can vary during the process of cellular aging.

(08) Postdoctoral Fellowship Position

Postdoc Fellowship Position summary/title: Postdoc in Building and Occupant centered control to increase the flexibility of the energy system

You will join a large-scale project where the aim is to better understand the role of end users of energy on the energy system and vice versa. From there, the project aims to develop methods to make the energetic flexibility of buildings (used by energy system aware users) more transparent and usable. Based on data-driven occupant centered approaches and user interventions the energetic flexibility potential of users shall be quantified in real life testbeds (i.e. the Empa NEST demonstrator) and full-scale living labs (i.e. parts of the city of Winterthur, Sion or Lugano).
