Postdoc in Microstructural analysis of hard CVD coatings by electron microscopy at Division of Microstructure Physics, Department of Physics, Chalmers University, Sweden 2022
Division of Microstructure Physics, Department of Physics
Chalmers University of Technology, Chalmersplatsen, Gothenburg, Sweden
To qualify for the position of post-doc, you must have a degree in Materials Science, Physics or similar. The degree should not have been awarded no more than three years prior to the application deadline (according to the current agreement with the Swedish Agency for Government Employers). Previous experience of specimen preparation, performing electron microscopy experiments, treating and analysing the resulting data is required.
Very good communication and collaborative skills are required, including excellent oral and written reporting in English. Swedish is not a requirement, but Chalmers offers Swedish courses. You are expected to be somewhat accustomed to teaching, and to demonstrate good potential within research and education.
You will mainly work with advanced (Scanning) Transmission Electron Microscopy (STEM/TEM), in combination with Energy Dispersive X-ray analysis (EDX), Transmission Kikuchi Diffraction (TKD) and Electron Energy Loss Spectroscopy (EELS). Site-specific thin (< 100 nm) foil samples to be investigated by TEM will be produced by the lift-out technique in a Focused Ion Beam/SEM (FIB/SEM) instrument.
You will take the main responsibility for planning and performing experiments, analysing the resulting data, reporting to collaborative partners and for taking the lead on publishing and disseminating the work. We also think that your skills and personality will allow you to support other activities in the division where your involvement would be suitable.The position may also include teaching on undergraduate and master's levels as well as supervising master's and/or PhD students to a certain extent. Another important aspect involves collaboration within academia and with society at large. The position is meritorious for future research duties within academia as well as industry/the public sector.
