Empa - the place where innovation starts
Empa is the research institute for materials science and technology of the ETH Domain and conducts cutting-edge research for the benefit of industry and the well-being of society.
Our laboratory for Advanced Material Processing (LAMP) at Empa's location in Thun is offering a Postdoctoral position in laser processing of materials:
You are an outstanding researcher with a strong experimental background in wear, contact and fracture mechanics as well as material science to take up a challenging research position in the area of tribology. You will be responsible for performing specific tribological experiments with state-of-the-art acoustic sensors. Your research focus will be on the fundamental understanding of wear and scuffing as well as data acquisition in order to improve the tribological performance of prosthetic joint replacements in a fundamental research project.
You have a PhD degree in material science, mechanical engineering or a related field. Experience in signal processing of data is an advantage. You will be integrated in a highly multidisciplinary team of material scientists, physicists, chemists and signal processing specialists, to drive innovations in medical industry in close-collaboration with several Empa partners. You demonstrated experience in publication of research findings with an excellent publication record, commensurate with opportunities. Profound knowledge of English (oral and written), excellent communication skills and advanced scientific writing capabilities (reports, publications) are mandatory. Knowledge in French and/or German would be a benefit.
The position is available immediately but a delayed start can be organized and initially will be limited to 18 months with a possibility for contract extension.
For further information about the position please contact Dr Kilian Wasmer firstname.lastname@example.org and visit our websites www.empa.ch/web/s204 and Empa-Video
We look forward to receiving your online application including a letter of motivation, CV, diplomas with transcripts and contact details of two referees. Please upload the requested documents through our webpage. Applications via email will not be considered.
