Empa - the place where innovation starts
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.
Empa’s Center for X-ray Analytics and the Laboratory for Particles-Biology Interactions are offering a
This interdisciplinary PhD project combines chemistry, material sciences, biology and X-ray diffraction and scattering studies. In-situ SAXS and XRD studies based on the combination of structural analysis with dynamical changes of nanoparticles environments will lead to a better understanding of complex interactions between particles and bio systems. Synergies with microscopy methods such as TEM and other X-ray based methods such as X-ray µ-Computed Tomography (µ-CT) or Phase Contrast Imaging (XPCI) will be used.
We offer a challenging position at a materials research institution with outstanding infrastructure and an interdisciplinary surrounding. You can expect significant support and guidance from established scientists during the whole of your project. Project duration of 3 years is planned in order to carry out the above research tasks. The project is supported by Empa and the Swiss National Science Foundation, and the candidate will perform his research at Empa in St. Gallen. Desired starting date is 1st of July 2017 or upon mutual agreement.
