PhD Student in nanophysics and thermoelectricity

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.

The Laboratory for Transport at Nanoscale Interfaces has an opening for a

PhD Student in nanophysics and thermoelectricity


The aim of the project is to design and fabricate molecular junctions with enhanced ability to convert waste heat to electricity making use of quantum interference. For this purpose, room-temperature quantum interference effects will be exploited at the single-molecule level, with the outlook of integration in massively-parallel molecular arrays. The PhD student will be part of a highly interdisciplinary European project that brings together internationally leading scientists from four different countries (https://sites.google.com/view/fetopen-quiet). He/she will develop expertise in the areas of nano-fabrication, molecular charge transport, electrical characterization and data analysis.

We are looking for a highly motivated PhD student with a strong background in (nano) physics, physical chemistry and/or material science. Excellent communication skills and fluency in English (both written and oral) are mandatory. The work will be carried out under supervision of Prof. Dr. Michel Calame. The position is available immediately. Working place will be at Empa in Dübendorf, which offers a highly stimulating research environment with state-of-the-art facilities and a broad interdisciplinary surrounding. Moreover, the PhD student will have access to the advanced nanofabrication facilities available at the Binnig and Rohrer Nanotechnology Center, located at IBM Zurich laboratories and at the ETH Zürich.

For further information about the position please contact Dr. Mickael Perrin mickael.perrin@empa.ch and visit our websites www.empa.ch/web/s405 and Empa-Video
We look forward to receiving your online application including a letter of motivation, CV, exam certificates, list of publications and contact details of at least two referees. Please upload the requested documents through our webpage. Applications via email will not be considered.
