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.
The main objective of a national, multi-partner and interdisciplinary research project is to develop lead free glasses and glass-ceramic materials for high performance joining of ceramics to ceramics and ceramic to metals. The project is in collaboration with a leading Swiss industrial partner in the field of joining and sensing. In addition, other academic partners will focus on the test methods for evaluating the joined materials.
Within this project, our Laboratory for High Performance Ceramics offers a position for a
to develop lead free glasses and glass-ceramic composite materials and the associated processing to manufacture high quality sealing material resistant to harsh environments. This should then be applied to joining of alumina ceramic and metal components for use in high performance sensors. An in depth knowledge of glass processing, glass melting, glass chemistry and production is necessary. Practical experience of joining, testing of joints via mechanical and microstructural characterization techniques is an advantage.
For this demanding project we are looking for a highly motivated candidate with a Ph.D. in glasses, ceramics, chemistry or materials science. The candidate needs to be fluent in English (oral and written) and preferably has a basic knowledge of German, with a proven track publication record.
This position will be available from October 1st, 2020 with a planned duration of 2 years.
For further information about the position please contact Dr Gurdial Blugan email@example.com and visit our websites www.empa.ch/web/s201 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.
