Skilled and committed employees are a crucial factor in the success of Linköping University. And we need more of them. Our core expertise comes from teachers and researchers, but a successful university requires experienced and motivated employees in many fields. Everyone is important. We need to recruit many new employees thanks to, among all, an expansion in our research activity. We need you here. We look forward to receiving your application! The Department of Physics, Chemistry and Biology conducts research and offers education at undergraduate and postgraduate levels. Research, the predominant activity, is often done in collaboration with corporate and international partners. We are one of the university’s largest, oldest and most well known departments, encompassing five interacting scientific fields: biology, chemistry, material physics, applied physics and theory and modelling.

The Materials Design division investigates novel materials for catalysis, including hydrogen evolution reaction (HER) and photocatalysis. We would now like to expand on these, and similar, activities through application-inspired fundamental research: We have a strong track record in the discovery of new MXenes, and we now intend to explore MXenes as well as new 2D materials beyond MXenes for these areas of applications. The post doc will perform materials synthesis (primarily powder-based bulk synthesis), and characterize the 3D and 2D materials with respect to structure and composition. The 2D materials will be tested for energy conversion potential, including, but not being limited to, photocatalysis and HER. The post doc will be part of an international team (> 20 people) performing related theoretical investigations and experimental activities on laminated materials in 3D and 2D, including (in selection) advanced materials characterization, high resolution (in situ) microscopy, and synchrotron analysis. A Postdoc will essentially carry out research. The position may also involve teaching, but during no more than a fifth of work time. Qualifications The position requires a doctorate or an equivalent degree from a foreign university. The doctorate shall have been obtained no longer than three years before the expiration date of the application. Documented experience from activities mentioned under Duties as well as documented excellent skills in writing (publications in scientific journals of high reputation) is a requirement. Excellent skills in presentation (communication) is also a requirement. Appointment time Two years. Starting date  By agreement. Salary The University applies individual salary scales adapted to the experience of the employee and to the labour market. Union representatives Information about union representatives, see Help for applicants. Application procedure Apply for the position by clicking the “Apply” button below. Your application must be received at latest 7 December 2021. Applications and documents received after the date above will not be considered. Linköping University will continue to develop as an attractive and creative place of work, characterized by equal terms and actively works for equality and diversity. We look forward to receiving your application! Linköping university has framework agreements and wishes to decline direct contacts from staffing- and recruitment companies as well as from vendors of job advertisements.
