Our Laboratory for Mechanics of Materials and Nanostructures is looking for a

PhD Student: Electrochemistry of 3D nanoarchitectured Materials for Catalysis and sensing applications


In collaboration with the Metrohm Foundation we wish to explore the electrochemical properties of 3D metal for specific application such as catalysis and sensing.


Your Tasks

  • fabricate three-dimensional metallic nanostructures via nanofabrication methods and to characterise their microstructure
  • explore the electrochemical properties, especailly catalysis/sensing properties of such 3D metallic structures

Your Profile

You hold a master degree in physics, material science or physical-chemistry or a related field and enjoy practical work. Knowledge of chemistry,  electrochemistry or nanofabrication is beneficial. As an enthusiastic researcher you like team work and have a flexible approach to collaborating between different laboratories.


A strong desire to work at the leading edge of measurement science and a high level of motivation to work in an international, multidisciplinary research team in the field of materials science and physics  are essential. Knowledge of English (oral and written) is important and knowledge of German or French would be an advantage.


You will be registered as a PhD Student at Ecole Polytechnique Fédérale de Lausanne (EPFL).


The position is available upon agreement with a planned duration of up to four years.
