100%, Zurich, fixed-term

We seek to fill several new Ph.D. student positions in our research group in early 2022.


Job description

We will have Ph.D. student projects in the following areas of analytical science:

  • Ambient ionization mass spectrometry; applications to on-line exhaled breath analysis
  • Soft ionization mass spectrometry (ESI, MALDI) to study noncovalent complexes
  • Investigation of gas-phase conformations of biomolecular ions using a combination of mass spectrometric methods and optical spectroscopy (laser-induced fluorescence, FRET)
  • Nanoscale vibrational spectroscopy and molecular imaging; tip-enhanced Raman spectroscopy

Your profile

Motivation to work with state-of-the-art instrumentation (some of them custom-made / home built), mass spectrometry, and laser spectroscopy is important.
Prerequisites: M.Sc. degree, Diploma or equivalent in Chemistry or related area, very good grades for fulfilling admissions conditions to ETH Zurich, strong background in analytical chemistry, physical chemistry, instrumentation or optics.

A working knowledge of German is advantageous, since all Ph.D. students are expected to act as teaching assistants during their tenure at our department.
