SB – PhD position in Surface Reaction Dynamics

ENAC

A doctoral position is available as of 1.9.2020 in the EPFL Surface Dynamics Group (Prof. R. Beck). We use state-of-the-art laser techniques to probe chemical reactions at the gas-surface interface by quantum-state-resolved measurements. Our research explores surface reactions used in heterogeneous catalysis such as the dissociative chemisorption of methane on a nickel surface which is (…)

ENAC – PhD position in Earthquake Engineering

ENAC

Stone masonry buildings are among the most vulnerable buildings when subjected to earthquake loading. Previous studies on the seismic risk of such buildings often used simplifying assumptions with regard to the response of flexible floor diaphragms, the interaction of in-plane and out-of-plane response and the interaction of adjacent buildings. The objective of this PhD thesis (…)

SB – PhD position in physics and systems neuroscience

SB

We are looking for PhD students and postdocs interested in physics and systems neuroscience. Our laboratory combines theory and experiment to investigate how circuits in the brain compute decisions dynamically. In experiments, we measure brain activity in C. elegans worms using novel microscopy techniques. We are looking for new principles and laws that describe decision-making (…)
