Qualification Details

You have graduated at Master’s level in physics, physical chemistry, materials chemistry, materials science, or similar with a minimum of 240 credits, at least 60 of which must be in advanced courses. Alternatively, you have gained essentially corresponding knowledge in another way.

Fluent English, spoken and written, is mandatory. As the project comprises work towards several research groups, good communication and collaboration skills are also required. 

Previous experience and interest in electron microscopy, in situ microscopy, low-dimensional materials and catalytic processes gives merit.

Responsibilities/Job Description

Your work assignments

Low-dimensional materials with a significant surface area in relation to weight enable solutions for many of the 21st century's acute needs in energy storage, catalysis, and carbon capture. Linköping University has been conducting successful and high-profile research in 1- and 2-dimensional materials for many years. Your tasks are to characterize and understand these materials, as well as to perform experiments during which you will expose the materials to steam and gas under varying pressures and temperatures to study reactions and decomposition products, in situ in an advanced electron microscope.

As a doctoral student, you devote most of your time to doctoral studies and the research projects of which you are part. Your work may also include teaching or other departmental duties, up to a maximum of 20% of full-time.

Your workplace

The Thin Film Physics division conducts research as well as undergraduate and postgraduate education in materials physics. You will be part of the Materials Microscopy Unit, that is the leading Swedish group in advanced electron microscopy.
