(01) PhD Degree – Fully Funded

PhD position summary/title: PhD Student (100%) in the field of “nanomedicine for pregnancy”

to join our dynamic and interdisciplinary team. Would you like to contribute to the development of novel responsive nanomedicines to alleviate diseases in pregnancy? Prenatal inflammation is closely associated with numerous pregnancy disorders but current standard therapies are often ineffective and/or complicated by substantial safety concerns.

(02) PhD Degree – Fully Funded

PhD position summary/title: PhD Student in Microanalysis of Magnesium Biocorrosion

Project context: The performance, durability and sustainability of engineering materials, as applied in e.g. medical technologies and related sensing devices, critically depend on the (electro)chemical reactivity and passivation (surficial oxide formation) of the metal or alloy surface in its service environment. Within the frame of an FWF-SNF lead agency international collaboration, doctoral positions at Empa and at the Medical university of Graz in Austria will investigate Mg alloy biodegradation processes. To obtain a full understanding of the degradation mechanisms, the scientific challenge is to mimic with advanced in vitro methodologies, the environment-dependent (in contact with bone or tissues) in vivo degradation. For this purpose, the PhD students in Graz will gather information on in vivo implant corrosion and physiological parameters near the implant.

(04) PhD Degree – Fully Funded

PhD position summary/title: Ph.D. position on Post-Tensioned/Prestressed 3D Printed Concrete Slabs

In this Ph.D. project, an advanced floor slab system consisting of post-tensioned 3D printed concrete formwork and cast-in-place reinforced concrete topping will be developed. The project aims to use 3D printed concrete as permanent formwork for slabs in place of conventional temporary formwork made up of timber or steel. The 3D printed concrete will be post-tensioned using BBR cables to improve the structural performance of the formwork. In addition, topology optimization tools will be implemented to optimize the geometry of the formwork to manufacture slabs with free-form geometries.

(05) PhD Degree – Fully Funded

PhD position summary/title: PhD position on Clumped isotope fingerprints in the N2O biogeochemical cycle (48 month)

Nitrous oxide (N2O) is the third most important greenhouse gas emitted today. Its sources are disperse and highly variable, which makes source studies and thus mitigation challenging. Measuring the doubly substituted, or “clumped”, isotopes of N2O will add new and unique dimensions to our ability to fingerprint and constrain the N2O biogeochemical cycle.

(09) PhD Degree – Fully Funded

PhD position summary/title: Ph.D. position titled: Digital twins for human exposure in the heat

Thermal environment management due to global warming, particularly heat stress, is growing in importance and poses a substantial risk to workers and general population worldwide. Therefore, detecting conditions resulting in heat stress is essential to become aware of the problem and take early mitigation measures to help prevent heat-related illness and maintain productivity. Thermal manikins or individual monitoring solutions coupled with sophisticated virtual models offer tools to predict human response in advance and recommend efficient mitigation measures before occurrence of the risk. In addition, validated dedicated models can serve as optimization tools for work environment, work organization, and protective clothing and equipment.
