PhD Studentship in electron spectroscopy
University of Fribourg

One PhD position in physical chemistry is available starting from September 2011. The work is predominantly experimental, with a possibility of some molecular modelling calculations. The research topic is electron-induced processes in gases and in novel targets (liquid micro-jets).

Description

At the beginning the student will join a running experiment on the gas-phase targets in order to acquire basic experimental skills. At the later stage he/she will participate on development of a novel experiment with liquid micro-jet targets. If interested, the student can also do molecular modelling (quantum chemistry / molecular dynamics) in order to support the experimental results.

Additional Job Details

The position in funded according to the rules of Swiss National Science Fund (approximately 42000 CHF/year). An additional teaching assistantship is possible, if the student is interested in teaching. The position is funded for three years.
