Doctoral student – Optimization of pulsed electric field processing for bio-based applications
We are looking for a candidate who is highly motivated to work on a research project focusing on pulsed electric fields applications on biological cells (e.g. microalgae). Targeting the technology readiness level of strategies developed in our laboratory (e.g. nsPEF induced growth stimulation) is a core research focus.
The candidate should have excellent academic qualifications, good communication skills, and strong self-motivation. In addition, enthusiasm, talent, and interest to engage independently in multidisciplinary research (i.e. engineering, biophysics, microbiology, food science, multiphysics simulation) and the underlying mechanisms is required. The successful candidate must have a Master degree (or equivalent) in Electrical Engineering, Mechanical Engineering, Process Engineering, Biotechnology, Food Science or a closely-related area. The candidate should have a sound foundation in multiphysics simulation, fluid mechanics and electric engineering, and be interested in food processing. The position will be open until a suitable candidate has been identified.
We look forward to receiving your online application with the following documents: cover letter including short statement of experience and qualification, a comprehensive CV, a short statement of research interests (one page) and contact information for two academic references via the following link: https://emea2.softfactors.com/job-opening/rgum-m4jHPqIsCJMXRPHkuh#/?lang=en. Please apply exclusively via the online application portal. Applications sent by e-mail or post will not be considered.

For further information on this position, please contact Prof. Dr. Alexander Mathys by email only at alexander.mathys@hest.ethz.ch (no applications) and visit our website www.sfp.ethz.ch.
