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 Biomimetic Membranes and Textiles are offering a
This interdisciplinary project employs cutting-edge X-ray analytics to develop and optimize strategies for designing nanofibers with hierarchical domains.The aim is to excel biofunctional polymer matrices with hierarchical lipid self-assemblies and deliver nanofibers with stimuli responsive drug delivery propertiesin bio-environment. Small angle scattering and diffraction studies will be extensively used to investigate the role of templating lipids and fine-tune the designing strategies. 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 EU, and the candidate will perform his/her research at Empa in St. Gallen. Desired starting date is upon mutual agreement. The application deadline is 31st of May 2018.
