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.

The Laboratory Transport at Nanoscale Interfaces pioneers and implements novel fabrication methods for functional nanostructured interfaces.

We develop fundamental understanding in the opto-electronic, thermal and ionic transport properties of low-dimensional materials & devices and transfer our knowledge to applications for biochemical sensing and bioelectronics.

To strengthen our interdisciplinary team, we look for a

The successful candidate will join an interdisciplinary European project that brings together internationally leading scientists from four different countries ().

The aim of the project is to design and fabricate molecular junctions with enhanced ability to convert waste heat to electricity making use of quantum interference.

Funding is secured for two years.


Design & fabrication of devices using the advanced nanofabrication facilities available at the Binnig and Rohrer Nanotechnology Center, located at IBM Zurich laboratories and at ETH Zürich

Electrical & thermoelectric characterization of the devices at room and cryogenic temperature

Data analysis and modeling (Ab Initio & DFT calculations experience a plus)

Presentation of results in peer-reviewed scientific journals and at international conferences

Submission of research proposals


PhD in physics, nanoscience, materials science, or a closely related field

Experience in nanofabrication

Good publication record at PhD / postdoc level

Fluent in English (oral and written)

Highly motivated, critical thinking, open-minded and communicative person, with a strong interest to work in an interdisciplinary research environment
