  • Investigation of gas-phase conformations of biomolecular ions using a combination of mass spectrometric methods and optical spectroscopy (laser-induced fluorescence, FRET)
  • Nanoscale vibrational spectroscopy and molecular imaging; tip-enhanced Raman spectroscopy
  • Your profile

    Motivation to work with state-of-the-art instrumentation (some of them custom-made / home built), mass spectrometry, and laser spectroscopy is important. Prerequisites: M.Sc. degree, Diploma or equivalent in Chemistry or related area, very good grades for fulfilling admissions conditions to ETH Zurich, strong background in analytical chemistry, physical chemistry, instrumentation or optics.

    A working knowledge of German is advantageous, since all Ph.D. students are expected to act as teaching assistants during their tenure at our department.
