October, 2013. OMEL welcomes back Lisa Poulikakos as she starts her Ph.D. project. Lisa, who was a Masters student at OMEL, recently completed her MS thesis, entitled "Exciton Dynamics in CdSe/ZnS Quantum Dot Assemblies," in the group of Prof. Will Tisdale at MIT in Cambridge, Massachusetts (USA).
July, 2013. Congratulations to Prof. David J. Norris for receiving a prestigious Advanced Grant from the European Research Council (ERC). The grant will provide a total of 2,5 million Euros over five years to support research in OMEL on "quantum-dot plasmonics."
July, 2013. Jong Hyuk successfully defended his Ph.D. thesis entitled, "Metal Structures for Photonics and Plasmonics", on July 11, 2013 and became Dr. Jong Hyuk Park. Because the defense was at the University of Minnesota, the group held a special apero on July 23 at ETH to congratulate Jong Hyuk.
January, 2013. Congratulations to Dr. Vincent Holmberg for receiving a Marie Curie ETH Zürich Postdoctoral Fellowship. The ETH Fellowship is intended to provide two years of postdoctoral support for “high-potential, young researchers who have already demonstrated excellence in terms of internationally competitive achievements in the early stages of their professional careers.” ETH Fellows are selected on the basis of a peer-reviewed research proposal and an interview with the ETH Zürich Research Commission.
December 2012. Ayash successfully defended his Ph.D. thesis entitled, "Phase Transitions and Doping in Semiconductor Nanocrystals", on November 16, 2012 and became Dr. Ayaskanta Sahu. Because the defense was at the University of Minnesota, the group held a special apero on December 5th at ETH to congratulate Ayash and celebrate with him. Ayash will start a postdoctoral position in March at the Molecular Foundry at Berkeley.
November, 2012. Congratulations to Dr. Vincent Holmberg for receiving the 2012 Hertz Thesis Prize for his PhD dissertation, "Semiconductor Nanowires: From a Nanoscale System to a Macroscopic Material". The $5000 award is given to dissertations in the applied physical, biological, and engineering sciences that exhibit "overall excellence and pertinence to high-impact applications of the physical sciences".
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 firstname.lastname@example.org.
