Qualification Details

  • To be eligible for doctoral education, a basic higher education equivalent to at least 240 ECTS credits, including at least 60 ECTS credits at second-cycle level, or essentially equivalent competences acquired in some other way, is required. More information about the general requirements can be found here.
  • To be admitted to the doctoral education programme in Chemistry with specialization in organic chemistry, 90 ECTS credits in chemistry or courses relevant to the chemistry field, including 40 ECTS credits in organic chemistry at second-cycle level, or essentially equivalent competences acquired in some other way, are required. More information about the subject specific requirements can be found here.
  • Very good English proficiency in speech and writing.

Great emphasis will be placed on personal qualities such as good collaborative skills, motivation and independence, as well as how the applicant through his/her experience and competence is judged to have the abilities necessary to develop within and acquire the doctoral education.

Additional requirements: It is desired that you have a Master´s degree in Organic Chemistry or equivalent. Hands-on experience with NMR spectroscopic analysis and from working under inert gas atmosphere as well as a strong background in synthetic organic chemistry will be considered as advantage. Experience from research (for example BSc and MSc thesis projects, academic internships, company research…) will be seen as a strong merit. Ability of critical and analytical thinking are necessities and will therefore be valued at the selection of candidates.

PhD students at the department are typically engaged in teaching at BSc and MSc level. Prior experience from teaching/mentoring, also from non-academic contexts, and outreach can therefore be considered a merit.

It is important for us to keep our lab and instruments clean and organized. Accordingly, you must be very organized and systematic in your work, and ready to actively contribute to a pleasant and productive work environment.

Responsibilities/Job Description

The main duties of PhD students are to devote themselves to their research studies, which includes participating in research projects and third cycle courses. The work duties can also include teaching and other departmental duties (no more than 20 %).
