PhD in Disorder-engineered optical nanomaterials (100%)

The group of Ralph Spolenak in the Department of Materials at ETH Zürich invites applications for a PhD position starting in the Fall of 2018. The research areas of the group include optical nanomaterials, complex 3D nanostructures and small-scale mechanics.
PhD in Disorder-engineered optical nanomaterials (100%)
Metamaterials are synthetic optical materials able to manipulate electromagnetic waves in an unprecedented manner. However, the experimental realization of metamaterials at macroscopic scales, especially for visible wavelength, is still challenging. This projects aims to use disorder as design parameter to create optical nanomaterials with a wide range of functionalities and applications.
The ideal candidate should have a strong background in experimental physics or materials science. He/she should be comfortable with basic programming and data analysis. Familiarity with experimental optics is preferred, but not required if the candidate is motivated to learn.
We look forward to receiving your online application including a CV, undergraduate and masters transcripts, as well as a motivation letter along with two contacts for reference letters. Please note that we exclusively accept applications submitted through our online application portal. Applications via email or postal services will not be considered.

For more information (no applications) please contact Henning Galinski (henning.galinski[at]mat.ethz.ch) or Prof. Ralph Spolenak (ralph.spolenak[at]mat.ethz.ch).
