The research will focus on the development of mesoscopic models and numerical experiments to investigate the rheology and mechanics of gels and glassy suspensions of interests for smart engineering materials (cement gels, nano-composite suspensions ...). The activity is part of an international and interdisciplinary research framework, including theoretical and experimental leading groups in the field of engineering materials. It is fully funded by the Swiss National Science Foundation (SNF).
ETH offers an exciting working environment and a competitive salary. The position will be available from July the 1st, 2010.
Interesting candidates will have a Master degree in physics, mathematics, physical chemistry, materials science, engineering, or a related field.
