PhD position: Additive Manufacturing in Design and Sustainable Production

The Chair of Product Development and Engineering Design (pd|z), Prof. Dr Mirko Meboldt at the Department of Mechanical and Process Engineering, ETH Zurich, invites applications for a PhD position in Additive Manufacturing. The start date is flexible.

Project background

Additive manufacturing offers unimagined potential for future applications, which combine both economic and ecological advantages optimally. In our research, we deal with the foundation to enable new application fields based on additive manufacturing. The realization of AM applications requires knowledge and methods in product development that is not yet state of the art. This project aims to explore new applications in the field of extrusion and fluidics for process engineering and the food industry using additive manufacturing. An initial area of application is, for example, the production of meat substitutes or the co-extrusion of plastics. The overall goal is to contribute to energy efficiency and the reduction of CO2 emissions.

Job description

  • Contribution to scientific progress in the field of additive manufacturing.
  • Planning and execution of experiments
  • Development of cutting-edge applications for additive manufacturing
  • Translation of research results to industrial partners
  • Collaboration in teaching and education
