PhD student in the field of cementitious construction materials

Empa - the place where innovation starts
Empa is the research institute for materials science and technology of the ETH Domain and conducts cutting-edge research for the benefit of industry and the well-being of society.

The Laboratory for Concrete and Construction Chemistry is seeking for a

PhD student in the field of cementitious construction materials


with a Master degree in Chemistry, Materials Science, Earth Sciences, Civil Engineering or related fields.

 

The topic of the 4 years PhD project is the study of hydration mechanisms and properties of low-CO2 cements based on magnesium hydroxycarbonates.

 

The main objectives of this study include (i) exploring the hydration mechanism by experiments and thermodynamic modelling, (ii) identifying admixtures to control fluidity/workability and setting times, and (iii) studying mechanical properties, volume changes and durability for a range of mortar and concrete mixtures based on this class of binders.

We are looking for a creative and innovative person, who has good verbal and written knowledge of the English language. Experiences with X-ray diffraction analysis, thermogravimetry, scanning electron microscopy, vibrational spectroscopy, analysis of aqueous solutions and the knowledge of cement hydration as well as a strong background in materials science and good skills in design and operation of experimental setups are an advantage.

 

The student will be enrolled at ETH Zürich and supervised by Prof Dr Pietro Lura.

 

If you work independently and if you are motivated to perform scientific studies in an interdisciplinary group and eager to contribute to its scientific competence and output, then you are the person we are seeking for.

For further information about the position please contact Dr Frank Winnefeld frank.winnefeld@empa.ch or Prof Dr Pietro Lura pietro.lura@empa.ch and visit our websites www.empa.ch/web/s308 and Empa-Video
We look forward to receiving your online application including a letter of motivation, CV, diplomas with transcripts and contact details of two referees. Please upload the requested documents through our webpage. Applications via email will not be considered.
