PhD in the field of cementitious construction materials


The topic of the 4 years project is studying novel methods to stabilize raw earthen building materials with low-embodied CO2 additives. The use of stabilized raw earth as a construction material is motivated by its low CO2 emissions compared to concrete. However, raw earth is commonly stabilized and strengthened with reactive calcium sources, typically lime or Portland cement that have high embodied CO2. Moreover, this strong chemical hydraulic stabilization hinders the re-use of raw earth and increases its en-vironmental footprint. This project aims to develop alternative methods for durable stabilization of raw earthen materials that have low environmental footprint and at the same time allow reuse of the raw earth.

We are looking for a creative and innovative person, with a MSc in Chemistry, Materials Science, Earth Sciences, Civil Engineering or related fields. Experience with X-ray diffraction analysis, thermogravimetry, scanning electron microscopy, vibrational spectroscopy, analysis of aqueous solutions, geochemical modelling and as well as a strong background in materials science and good skills in design and operation of experimental setups are an advantage. Excellent communicatoin and writing skills in English are mandatory. If you are very motivated and likes to work in an international, interdisciplinary environment, then you might be the person we are looking for. 


Our institution is based on an interdisciplinary, innovative and dynamic collaboration. You will profit from a systematic training on the job, our personal development possibilities and our pronounced vocational training culture. In addition, we are able to support you with our modern employment conditions and the on-site infrastructure.
