You must hold a Master’s or an equivalent Degree in Materials Science, Mechanical Engineering or similar. A high motivation to work at the leading edge of measurement science and to work in an international, multidisciplinary research team is essential. Knowledge of English (oral and written) is important and knowledge of German or French would be an advantage. Experience in nanomechanical testing techniques like nanoindentation, electron and transmission electron microscopy based techniques as well as programming (e.g. Matlab or C++) is desirable.
You will be enrolled in the doctoral school program of Ecole polytechnique fédérale de Lausanne (EPFL). The project is initiated in cooperation with Prof. Roland Logé and Dr. Cyril Cayron from the Laboratory of Thermomechanical Metallurgy at EPFL.
