We are always looking for outstanding and highly motivated people willing to work on challenging scientific projects, in a serious but also friendly and very cooperative and team-work oriented environment. If we are convinced by the motivation and high quality of a candidate, we may generate a corresponding Ph. D or postdoc position. Please send spontaneous applications to Prof. Fabien Sorin even if there is no current opening suitable for you.
Related PhD application process can be found: http://phd.epfl.ch/prospective. Anyway, we encourage candidates to contact prospective thesis supervisor first.
Open Position for a 2-year postdoc
We have an opening for a 2-year postdoctoral position at FIMAP in the area of fiber processing, connecting, and fiber integration into a mattress for the sensing and monitoring of different types of mechanical deformation. This project is applied in nature, in collaboration with a company, yet can lead to novel concepts and device designs for sensing which will also lead to high impact publications. It is hence an excellent multi-disciplinary project that leaves open different career paths from academia to industry, as well as with a potential of start-up creation.
The candidate should have a background in materials science and engineering and/or electrical engineering, and be able to be comfortable in both fields as the project sits at the cross-road of both. If you are interested, please send you CV with a motivation letter describing your background, previous achievements and interests directly to Prof. Sorin ([email protected]). Please provide also the name of at least 2 references.
