Ph.D. positions in Ultrafast Electron Microscopy

Several Ph.D. positions are available in the group of Prof. Ulrich Lorenz at EPFL in Lausanne, Switzerland. We are currently setting up a Time-resolved/Ultrafast Electron Microscope to study the dynamics of nanoscale systems. We have some ambitious ideas that we want to pursue and are seeking several highly motivated new members for our team.

We are looking for curious and driven people who have fun trying out new things. A background in Electron Microscopy, (ultrafast) lasers, nanotechnology, or anything related would be great. But really anybody with good ideas and plenty of enthusiasm is highly welcome. Ultrafast Electron Microscopy is still a fairly young and rapidly developing field that offers exciting opportunities to try out something new. "The day before something is a breakthrough it's a crazy idea" (Peter's Law #22).

Take a look at our website ( lnd.epfl.ch), and do not hesitate to drop me an e-mail if you are interested ( ulrich.lorenz@epfl.ch). I would love to discuss in more detail about the science and possible projects!

Some technical details : Candidates should hold a Master’s degree in Chemistry, Physics, or a related field (in exceptional cases, a Bachelor’s degree will also be accepted). Good proficiency in English is required (French is a plus, but not necessary). Moreover, the candidate must be accepted by the doctoral school in Physics (http:// phd.epfl.ch/EDPY) or Chemistry (http:// phd.epfl.ch/EDCH).
