Available Full-Time Positions

1 PhD Positions in in situ electron microscopy of oxygen evolving 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. The position is dedicated to oxygen evolving catalysts. In general, the research project includes 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 chemistry, materials science or a related discipline. Previous demonstrated, hands-on experience with electron microscopes (SEM, FIB and/or TEM) and/or cleanroom/microfabrication experience 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.


1 Fixed-Term Internship Position: Imaging of amyloid fibrils with liquid-phase TEM

Job description

We are seeking to hire an Intern to develop and apply liquid-phase electron microscopy to image amyloid fibrils in real-time. The project is in collaboration with the group of Prof. Hilal Lashuel.

Person specification

Candidates should be recent Master degree graduates or expected to graduate with a Master degree soon. A Master degree in Materials Science or Bioengineering is preferred. Previous demonstrated, hands-on experience with operating electron microscopes would be useful.
The project can also apply to Master’s students for their theses.

Further information

This paid position is for 3 months with a possibility for renewal for another 3 months.
Further information and applications including a motivation letter and the updated CV should be send to Prof. Tileli .
