March, 2015. Congratulations to Maximilian Fischer for winning the Ernst-Blickle-Studienpreis 2014 from the SEW-EURODRIVE-Foundation. He received the award for his outstanding Master Thesis “Carbon Nanosheets as Active Electrocatalysts in solid Acid Fuel Cell Electrodes”.
February, 2015. OMEL welcomes Felipe Antolinez as a new PhD student who recently graduated with his Master's degree in Mechanical Engineering from the ETH Zurich. Felipe conducted his master thesis, entitled „Numerical Characterization of Plasmonic Wedge Waveguides and Resonators", here at the Optical Materials Engineering Laboratory of Prof. David Norris.
February, 2015. OMEL welcomes Jan Winkler as a new PhD student, who recently graduated with his Master's degree in Process Engineering from the ETH Zurich. Jan conducted his master thesis, entitled „Formulation and characterization of a polymeric siRNA delivery system", at the Chemical Engineering department, in the group of Prof. Mark Davis, at the California Institute of Technology, Pasadena (USA).
December, 2014. Dr. Kevin McPeak's poster 'Periodic Nanostructured CdS/PbS-Quantum
Dot Solar Cells in Substrate Configuration' won a best poster award
for symposium W at the Materials Research Society conference in
January, 2015. Congratulations to Dr. Jian Cui for receiving an ETH Zürich Postdoctoral Fellowship. The ETH Fellowship, co-funded by the EU Commission's Marie Curie Actions, is intended to provide two years of postdoctoral support for “high-potential, young researchers.” ETH Fellows are selected on the basis of a peer-reviewed research proposal and an interview with the ETH Zürich Research Commission.
September, 2014. We have relocated our main offices to the new LEE building, but the labs will remain in CNB.
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.
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.
