Ph.D. Student, Nanospectroscopy in situ

The Laboratory of Organic Chemistry seeks to fill a Ph.D. student position funded by an ERC Advanced grant. The topic of the Ph.D. thesis will be on the development and application of tip-enhanced Raman spectroscopy (TERS) to study sensitive 2-dimensional molecular layers. TERS combines scanning probe microscopy, capable of sub-nanometer topographic resolution, with Raman spectroscopy, which provides a rich chemical fingerprint of analytes. TERS can perform chemical mapping with a resolution below 5nm and is compatible with ambient and liquid conditions.
Ph.D. Student, Nanospectroscopy in situ
Our goal is to demonstrate chemical nanoscale resolution on model biological systems such as supported lipid bilayers. The work in this Ph.D. project involves the development and use of TERS in liquid to study biomaterials in their natural environment. In situ TERS can open valuable research opportunities in domains as varied as biochemistry, catalysis and materials for energy applications.
The Ph.D. has a M.Sc. degree, Diploma or equivalent in Chemistry or related area, strong background in analytical chemistry, physical chemistry and instrumentation. Motivation to work with sophisticated instrumentation, spectroscopy, and computer-assisted data evaluation is important. This position provides the opportunity to work with state of the art nanoscale spectroscopy and advance our understanding complex interfaces in their natural state. Collaborations and presentation at national and international conferences are encouraged. Earliest possible starting date is the 1 of September 2018.
We look forward to receiving your online application including a CV, a publication list, transcripts & grades received and the name and contact information of 2 references until May 31, 2018. Please note that we exclusively accept applications submitted through our online application portal. Applications via email or postal services will not be considered.

For further information contact Dr. Guillaume Goubert at goubert@org.chem.ethz.ch or Prof. Renato Zenobi at zenobi@org.chem.ethz.ch (no applications) or visit www.zenobi.ethz.ch/research/nanoscale-analysis.html.
