(03) PhD Degree – Fully Funded

PhD position summary/title: PhD in the field of cementitious construction materials

The topic of the 4 years project is studying novel methods to stabilize raw earthen building materials with low-embodied CO2 additives. The use of stabilized raw earth as a construction material is motivated by its low CO2 emissions compared to concrete. However, raw earth is commonly stabilized and strengthened with reactive calcium sources, typically lime or Portland cement that have high embodied CO2. Moreover, this strong chemical hydraulic stabilization hinders the re-use of raw earth and increases its en-vironmental footprint. This project aims to develop alternative methods for durable stabilization of raw earthen materials that have low environmental footprint and at the same time allow reuse of the raw earth.

(05) PhD Degree – Fully Funded

PhD position summary/title: PhD student in data for circular buildings

You will work on developing a computational design method for direct feedback on both embodied and operational impacts of design-decisions concerning the reuse of building materials. Combining tools from computer science and environmental architecture, you will look at optimization methods for finding the perfect fit for waste materials in an urban context, in order to lower waste generation, greenhouse gas emissions, and resource depletion. To do so, you will need to collaborate closely with industry in order to assess the condition of existing building materials using digital, non-destructive assessment tools. You will publish in scientific journals and conferences and present at public events for the general public.

Deadline : December 31th 2021

(06) PhD Degree – Fully Funded

PhD position summary/title: Ph.D. position in Magnetic Thin Film Multilayers with Interfacial Dzyaloshinskii-Moriya Interaction Supporting Skyrmions

For this specific project, we will design and fabricate ferro- and ferrimag-net-based thin film multilayer systems using advanced multi-source ultra-high vacuum (UHV) sputter deposition systems. The macroscopic magnetic properties of these systems will be determined using vibrating sample magnetometry (VSM). The local magnetic properties will be investigated using our home-built quantitative and high-resolution magnetic force microscopy (MFM) systems. MFM provides sub-monolayer sensitivity for magnetic thin films and all three vector components of the stray field above the sample can be quantitatively measured with a lateral resolution down to about 10nm. The skyrmion dynamics will also be investigated by performing MFM on prototypical devices under applied current pulses.

(08) PhD Degree – Fully Funded

PhD position summary/title: PhD Student in Microanalysis of Magnesium Biocorrosion

Your work will focus on the in vitro investigation of the surface reactivity, corrosion mechanisms and corrosion product formation on ultra-high purity Mg and Mg-Zn-Ca alloys. Scientific questions related to the oxidation mechanisms and chemistry/products formed on the surface will be addressed with the help of newly developed flow chambers with online electrochemical/analytic characterization. A further focus of the PhD thesis will be on the corrosion products analysis based on Raman, FTIR spectroscopies. A key scientific question will then be related to new developments of Laser-Ablation based corrosion products composition and trace element microanalysis.
