Materials science and technology are our passion. With our cutting-edge research, Empa's around 1,100 employees make essential contributions to the well-being of society for a future worth living. Empa is a research institution of the ETH Domain.
At the Nanoparticle Systems Engineering Group, based at EMPA St. Gallen and ETH Zurich , we design and develop conceptionally novel nanotechnology-enabled solutions for precision medicine based on an interdisciplinary design-thinking approach. The lab leverages materials engineering, cutting-edge analytics and simulations to obtain a holistic understanding of the interplay of engineered materials with the living across scales.As part of a collaborative Horizon Europe research project, we offer an exciting position in the field of correlative imaging of nanotherapeutics in biological systems. We are looking for a postdoctoral scientist with degree in chemistry, material science, engineering, physics or a related field, preferably with a background in analytical chemistry and/or image analysis.
The research seeks to advance the analysis of nanotherapeutics in complex biological systems by harnessing cutting edge (electron) spectroscopy and microscopy techniques as well as the full imaging processing and analysis toolbox (incl. machine learning). The position includes collaboration with leading European academic as well as industrial partners. Furthermore, within the framework of this project, we offer an opportunity to develop an own research focus. The results will be presented at leading national and international conferences and published in top tier journals.
We offer an international, collaborative and highly stimulating research environment with excellent infrastructure with ample opportunities for personal and professional development. The primary work place is Empa St. Gallen. Contact for the position: firstname.lastname@example.org . As part of the project, regular site visits to Empa Dübendorf, ETH Zurich (ScopeM facilities) and the University of Zurich are encouraged for networking and shared infrastructure use.
Ph.D. degree in chemistry, material science, engineering, physics or a related field. Preferably experience in analytical chemistry with experience in spectromicroscopy techniques and/or general instrumental analytical chemistry and the analysis of large datasets.
Previous experience in programming (preferably python) as well as specific techniques such as electron microscopy, Raman microscopy or inductively coupled plasma mass spectrometry (ICP-MS) will be an advantage.
The nature of the experiments to be conducted requires a high motivation and ability to handle the respective complex instruments and to anticipate analytical challenges.You are a team player and have excellent communication skills. Your strengths include taking personal responsibility, high motivation for innovation, excellence and flexibility to work and deliver good results. You have excellent verbal and written skills in English.
The position can start between 01.09.2023 and 01.01.2024 upon mutual agreement. The initial contract will be issued for 2 years with the possibility for extension. Also, part-time employment is possible (60-100%).
