OMEL Welcomes Dr. Ferry Prins

August, 2014. OMEL welcomes Dr. Ferry Prins, who joins the group as postdoc after a postdoctoral stay at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (USA) in the group of Prof. Tisdale, where he worked on energy transfer and exciton dynamics in nanomaterials. Ferry obtained his PhD from TU Delft (NL) in 2011 with Prof. Van der Zant working on nanoelectronics.


Open Positions

OMEL currently has several open positions for outstanding experimental scientists at the postdoctoral, Ph.D., and M.S. levels. Projects involving semiconductor nanocrystals, plasmonics, photovoltaics, and thermophotovoltaics, are available. Some details about our current projects can be found on our research page. However, this list is not exhaustive and new projects are constantly under development, especially as we establish our new group and develop new collaborations at ETH.

Successful applicants will be self-motivated and have a strong record. A background in material physics, characterization, and/or optics is desirable at the postdoctoral level, however strong candidates will always be considered. Salaries are extremely competitive. To apply, please send a CV to
