Lund University invites applications for a Researcher position for one year within the origin of life research at the Department of Astronomy and Theoretical Physics, Sweden – Dec 2022
No. of Positions: 1
Research Field: Physical Chemistry
Joining Date: Jan 01, 2023
Contract Period: Until Dec 31, 2023
Salary: Subject to norms
Department of Astronomy and Theoretical Physics
Lund University, Lund, Sweden
The applicant must hold a PhD in physical chemistry and have a research profile within experiments on complex behavior of self-propelled objects in the context of the origin of life.
The successful candidate will work in the planet formation team. This team is led by Anders Johansen, who has a large expertise and experience within the research area. The group has funding to employ a researcher on a one-year contract.
The researcher will work on chemical motion of droplets on a water surface as an analogy for the origin of self-propelling motion in primitive cells. These experiments will be interpreted in the context of the chemical conditions on early Earth.
How to Apply?
Application Method: Online Application
Ref. No.: PA2022/3677
Applications should consist of a CV, a publication list and a short description of current research (max 1 page).
About the Department
The Faculty of Science conducts research and education within Biology, Astronomy, Physics, Geosciences, Chemistry, Mathematics and Environmental Science. The Faculty is organized into nine departments, gathered in the northern campus area. The Faculty has approximately 1500 students, 330 PhD students and 700 employees.
The activities of the Department of Astronomy and Theoretical Physics are centred around three main areas: Astronomy and Astrophysics; Theoretical Particle Physics; and Computational Biology and Biological Physics. Our research is driven by our curiosity to understand reality, from the smallest of particles to the largest astronomical structures, as well as the structure of Life itself. We have a strong international position in all three areas, and we are actively working on further strengthening our international profile.
