As a PostDoc in our group, you are expected to autonomously carry out research work within the area of reactive transport in porous, cementitious media as described above.
You contribute to the scientific development and implementation of the numerical model. Contributions through experimental work delivering the needed validation data are also possible, such as related to moisture retention and transport, ion movement and distribution, microstructural characterization, or iron species characterization.
You co-supervise doctoral students working in our group, and you supervise BSc and MSc students in their projects. You expand your research portfolio, and you represent our research group through publications and presentations at international conferences.
If you wish to, you may contribute to teaching activities.
The conditions of employment are based on the Swiss Federal Personnel Act and the ETH Personnel Ordinance. The salary rates of PostDocs are in agreement with the employment conditions of ETH (covering living expenses). See :
Successful applicants should hold a PhD degree in an area relevant for the research described above, ideally with a background in numerical modeling.
Experience with reactive transport modeling in porous media, such as ion / moisture transport in building materials or reactive transport processes in geochemical contexts, are a valuable asset for your dossier.
Knowledge in corrosion is not required, but would be an advantage. Proficiency in written and oral English as well as maturity and self-motivation are necessary.
Above all, candidates should be enthusiastic, curious, and creative in what they do.
