Empa - the place where innovation starts

Empa is the research institute for materials science and technology of the ETH Domain and conducts cutting-edge research for the benefit of industry and the well-being of society.

In our Laboratory for Advanced Materials Processing, we are currently looking for an outstanding candidate for a

PhD Position in the field of 3D printing of Fe-based shape memory alloys (SMA) for novel structural metamaterials and "smart" structures

For a collaborative project between the Alloy Design for Advanced Processing Technologies (ADAPT) group at Empa and the Advanced Surface Coatings & Processing group at Korean Institute of Industrial Technology (KITECH), Busan, South Korea. The goal is the development of a cost-efficient Fe-Mn-Si based SMA for laser-based additive manufacturing, its characterization as well as the design of novel structural metamaterials and smart structures for civil engineering applications that make use of the unique properties of the SMA. The prospective student will be enrolled at the doctoral school of EPF Lausanne (http://phd.epfl.ch/) under the co-supervision of Prof. Patrik Hoffmann and Dr. Christian Leinenbach.

The candidate should have a Master degree in Materials Science, Metallurgy, Mechanical Engineering or Applied Physics. A strong background in the science and technology of metallic materials as well as an interest in laser-based materials processing technologies are important. Additional skills in materials characterization (e.g. OM, SEM, XRD, thermo-mechanical testing) and/or materials modeling and simulation techniques (finite elements, computational thermodynamics) would be a benefit.

A strong desire to work at the leading edge of materials technology and a high level of motivation to work in an international, multidisciplinary research team in the field of materials science are essential. The candidate should have a clear interest to work in an application-oriented research environment in close-collaboration with our industrial and academic partners. Good knowledge of English (oral and written) is mandatory. Knowledge of German would be an advantage. The full-time position is available immediately or upon agreement.

For further information about the position please contact Dr. Christian Leinenbach, christian.leinenbach@empa.ch, and visit our websites www.empa.ch/web/s204 and Empa-Video.

We look forward to receiving your online application including a letter of motivation, CV, diplomas with transcripts and contact details of two referees. Please upload the requested documents until 30 November 2019 through our webpage. Applications via email will not be considered.

Empa, Cristina Marinoni, Human Resources, Ueberlandstrasse 129, 8600 Dübendorf, Switzerland.
