Swiss Federal Laboratories for Materials Science and Technology invites online Application for various Postdoctoral Positions. Eligible candidate may Apply as soon as possible. 

 

(01) Postdoctoral Position

Postdoctoral position summary/title: Postdoc or Scientist in decentralized energy systems.

You will work in research and development projects in the fields of decentralized energy systems for buildings, quarters and cities. You will design and evaluate system concepts by modelling and simulation and develop respective design and evaluation approaches and tools. You will execute your research ideas in various projects, in close collaboration with our team and our external scientific and industry partners. You will support our PhD and postdoctoral students and publish in scientific journals and conferences

Deadline of Postdoc Position: Open Until Filled

(02) Postdoctoral Position

Postdoctoral position summary/title:  Postdoc position in the field of printed photopolymers (photoresins).

Within a collaborative project DiPrintProtect funded by the Strategic Focus Area (SFA) Advanced Manufacturing https://www.sfa-am.ch/, we would like to push the limits of precision printing of protecting polymers coatings. The results of the project will find direct use within the watch manufacturing cycle by replacing the manual application step of protective coatings with a digital printing/coating process. We will pursue three main objectives that reflect industry needs: 

  • develop a printable resin/varnish/film to ensure the desired protective function
  • identify a digital printing technology with the requested spatial definition down to 10 µm
  • ensure traceless removal of the protection, either by dissolution or preferably by peeling off/delamination

Deadline of Postdoc Position: Open Until Filled
