PhD position in wood based material

The Wood Materials Science group at the Institute for Building Materials invites applications for a
PhD position in wood based material
The objective of this PhD position is to develop and synthesize multifunctional wood-based materials as well as to contribute to the implementation in largescale industrial processes. The project aims at controllable growth of minerals in wood. In particular fire retardancy, mechanical performance, thermal conductivity, and antifungal properties will be accessed. Characterization techniques include Scanning/Transmission electron microscopy, XRD, XRF, X-ray tomography, TGA, DSC, ATR-FTIR, and AFM, which will be applied to achieve a comprehensive understanding of the hybrid structure and performance. This project should lead to advanced wood-based materials with increased reliability and thereby boost the utilization of the renewable and CO2 storing resource. Our research may also open new avenues for the manufacturing of multifunctional materials with complex architectures by combining controllable chemical synthesis with the natural wood scaffold.
The suitable candidate should have a master degree in Materials Science and Engineering, Chemistry, Biology or Wood Science. Experience and solid knowledge in the field of controllable material synthesis and characterization is required. This position is available from 1st of June onwards.
We look forward to receiving your online application including a letter of motivation, CV, diplomas with transcripts and contact details of two referees. Please address your application to Ms Corina Niescher, Human Rescources. We exclusively accept applications submitted through our online application portal. Applications via email or postal services will not be considered.

For further information about the position please contact Dr. Huizhang Guo, e-mail: huguo[at]ethz.ch and or learn more about us on www.ifb.ethz.ch/woodmaterialsscience.
