3. Fully Funded PhD Position in neurodegenerative disease

Summary of PhD Program:

We are seeking a highly motivated PhD candidate to investigate the role of metallic nanoparticles in amyloid aggregation that leads to neurodegenerative disease. The successful candidate will be employed by the PSI and will be enrolled within the graduate school of the Swiss Nanoscience institute at University of Basel. This interdisciplinary and collaborative project, led by the Luoand Hillerlabs at PSI and Biozentrum, University of Basel. The project aims to unravel how metal ions cause amyloid proteins to aggregate and condense, leading to the creation of metallic nanoparticles with a zero-oxidation state. The ultimate goal is to gain insights for the development of new therapeutics for neurodegenerative diseases.

Application Deadline: 7 December 2023

5. Fully Funded PhD Position in Experimental Physics

Summary of PhD Program:

The position is available in the framework of the SNSF Starting Grant of Dr Zurab Guguchia. You will perform a systematic experimental study to discover novel magnetically induced topological phases and control as well as manipulate topological (Weyl / Dirac) fermions via external parameters that tune magnetic interactions using ambient pressure / high pressure / high field μSR, magnetization, and transport techniques. You will also carry out a microscopic exploration of the superconducting pairing and the time-reversal symmetry breaking nature of charge order and superconductivity in kagome-lattice systems. You will benefit from interactions with the local scientific environment and from the networking within international collaborations.

Application Deadline: 15 October 2023
