The Department of Chemistry and Applied Biosciences (D-CHAB) consists of 55 research groups and has a total of staff of 1’100 employees. The group of Prof. R. Zenobi seeks to fill a postdoctoral position funded by an ERC Advanced grant.
Postdoctoral Position in Nanoscale Spectroscopy
The topic of the research will be on the development and application of tip-enhanced Raman spectroscopy (TERS), with the aim to study sensitive 2-dimensional molecular layers. TERS combines scanning probe microscopy (SPM) with optical spectroscopy, and lends chemical specificity to SPM, which greatly extends its range of applications.
Prerequisites: Ph.D. in Chemistry or related area, very strong background in analytical chemistry, physical chemistry, experience with Raman spectroscopy or scanning probe microscopy. Motivation to work with sophisticated instrumentation, spectroscopy, and computer-assisted data evaluation is important.
