Postdoc on Thermoelectric Materials Development


The Laboratory of Solid State Chemistry at Empa*/35380/---/l=1 is developing
perovskite-type compounds and nanostructured composites for potential
applications as functional materials in renewable energy- and environmental
technologies. Applied methods are chimie douce techniques for nanostructured
materials production, XRD, ND, EXAFS and TEM for the structural
characterisation of new materials. XRF, ICP-OES, TGA with coupled mass
spectrometry and TEM, SEM/EDX for the chemical and morphological

For our project on thermoelectric materials we seek to recruit a

Postdoc on Thermoelectric Materials Development

The position is immediately available for a candidate (m/f) with a PhD in
Chemistry, Physics or Materials Sciences (or related).

The project is focussed on the development of novel thermoelectric materials,
and characterisation techniques of thermoelectric materials.

The ideal candidate is a communicative scientist with a strong background in
chemistry and/or physical sciences .He/she has experience on the synthesis of
inorganic solids and their characterisation.

Experience with thermoelectrics would be beneficial.
