The Paul Scherrer Institute PSI is the largest research centre for natural and engineering sciences within Switzerland. We perform cutting-edge research in the fields of matter and materials, energy and environment and human health. By performing fundamental and applied research, we work on sustainable solutions for major challenges facing society, science and economy. PSI is committed to the training of future generations. Therefore about one quarter of our staff are post-docs, post-graduates or apprentices. Altogether PSI employs 2000 people.
The Thin Films & Interfaces Group, which is part of the Research with Neutrons and Muons Division, is working on the development, characterization, and processing of functional materials, often with photon-based methods, especially for renewable energy applications. One of the main topics is the deposition of thin functional oxide films by laser-based methods and spectroscopy during deposition. The aim of this project is to deposit photocatalytically active thin films, which are applied for water splitting. This project is a PSI-CROSS project, which involves several research groups in different research divisions.
For the Thin Flims & Interfaces Group we are looking for a
The practical work will mainly be carried out at PSI, but the PhD thesis will be officially acquired at the Swiss Federal Institute of Technology in Zurich (ETHZ).
