2 PhD Positions in in situ electron microscopy of catalysts

Job description
The Laboratory for in situ nanomaterials characterization with electrons (INE) at the Institute of Materials at EPFL invites applications of highly motivated individuals to develop and apply methods for advanced in situ transmission electron microscopy (TEM) characterisation with respect to energy materials. One position is dedicated to catalytic CO2 reduction reaction and the other is involved with oxygen evolving catalysts. In general, the research projects include development of specimen imaging methods and application of transmission electron techniques using the microscopes at CIME.

Person specification
Candidates should hold a Master degree in physics, materials science or a related discipline. Previous demonstrated, hands-on experience with electron or ion microscopes (SEM, FIB and/or TEM) is preferred.

Application process
Applicants should send a motivation letter, their CV, at least two contacts of references and relative documentation by email to Prof. Tileli .
Note that the candidate should also apply to the Doctoral School in Materials.
