Qualification Details

PhD degree or a foreign degree equivalent to a PhD degree in chemistry, materials engineering or physics with a focus on electrochemistry. Knowledge and experience in the fabrication and electrochemical testing of lithium ion batteries and magnetic measurements is required.

We require very good written and verbal communication skills in English.

Additional qualifications A background in scanning electron microscopy, image analysis, and water electrolysis is meritory.

Personal qualities such as a strong motivation and the ability to lead and run research projects while interacting with other researchers are very important. Applicants must be purposeful, structured and able to work effectively both individually and in groups.

Responsibilities/Job Description

Temporary full-time employment for four months starting date by agreement

The project is financed by the Swedish Research Council Neutron Initiative and deals with upgrading the instrument DREAM at ESS (European Spallation Source, in Lund ( to studies of nanomaterials and thereby increasing dramatically their use and user base. The project aims at increasing the length scales that can be probed with DREAM. We will design advanced sample environments so that the upgrading can be fully exploited. The diffractometer DREAM includes from the original design the possibility of data acquisition in two length scales (Å and nm). Some examples of possible studies that will be carried out are how the structure of batteries changes during usage or how do small cellulose fibres self-assemble.

Work duties The research fellow will continue the work in the ongoing project together with a team that focuses in studying battery components with neutron scattering at both the atomic (diffraction) and nanoscopic (small angle neutron scattering, SANS) levels. The work implies electrochemical experiments that will be used in connection with neutron and X-ray scattering in neutron and synchrotron facilities around the world. The work also includes the design, development, and testing of different sample environments for the in-situ characterisation of nanomaterials, particularly magnetic materials.
