Ambizione awards for three current and former MUST researchers

Ambizione grants are aimed at young researchers who wish to conduct, manage and lead an independent project at a Swiss higher education institution. It comprises the salary of the grantee and project funds for up to 4 years.

Axel Schild will be hosted by Hans Jakob Wörner at Physical Chemistry (ETH Zürich), where he currently works as a PostDoc. His topic will be attosecond theory, specifally "Exact Factorization Approach to the Dynamics of Molecules in Strong Laser Fields".

Arianna Marchioro will work on "Understanding Photoinduced Processes at Semiconductor/Aqueous Interfaces by Surface-Specific Spectroscopic Techniques", hosted by Prof. Silvie Roke in Physical Chemistry (EPF Lausanne). She did her PhD in the group of Jacques Moser, and worked as a PostDoc at the University of Washington, before returning to the EPFL.

Dmitry Momotenko, who received his PhD in the group of Hubert Girault at the EPF Lausanne, will join Physical Chemistry at the ETH Zürich, and work on "Single Entities at High Magnification: Mapping, Measuring and Manipulating Nanoparticles".
