PhD Student for “Computer aided multi-objective aerogel process optimization through model fitting”
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
For this project, we are looking for a PhD student with a degree in materials science, chemistry, physics or computational science and engineering, capable of working autonomously but as a part of the team. The candidate should have a sound basis in numerical modelling and programming.
The “Building Energy Materials and Components” laboratory at Empa spans subjects from fundamental research of wet chemical / sol-gel methods to the development of building components with the overarching goal to improve energy efficiency and reduce fossil fuel consumption. In this multidisciplinary environment, communication and interaction to create synergies and develop new ideas is highly valued.
