PhD student in Stochastic Atomic and Molecular Fluctuators and Resonators studied by SPM
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
We look for a candidate with a master degree in experimental Physics, and a strong background in surface science, in the operation of ultrahigh-vacuum systems, and preferably in UHV scanning tunneling or scanning force microscopy is desired for this position, but most importantly high motivation to study new physical phenomena at the nanoscale using unique and sophisticated experimental equipment is sought. Excellent communication skills and good verbal and written knowledge in English are also expected.
We offer for this project a highly stimulating research environment with excellent infrastructure, including two home-built UHV low temperature cantilever-based AFM systems. An experienced permanent research staff member, and a postdoc will supervise the research work of the two Ph.D. students. This group is further integrated in the Empa Laboratory for Nanoscale Material Science conducting a large number of other basic and applied science projects in various research fields. As a Ph.D. student you will be embedded in a much larger multidisciplinary international research team.
