Postdoc position – 2019 in Chemistry
Uppsala University, Sweden invites application for Postdoc position – 2019 in Chemistry from eligible and interested candidates
About- Uppsala University is a comprehensive research-intensive university with a strong international standing. Our mission is to pursue top-quality research and education and to interact constructively with society. Our most important assets are all the individuals whose curiosity and dedication make Uppsala University one of Sweden’s most exciting workplaces. Uppsala University has 42,000 students, 7,000 employees and a turnover of SEK 6.7 billion.
Research/Job Area- Chemistry or Physics
Location- Uppsala University, Sweden
For employment as postdoc, the applicant should have a PhD exam or an international equivalent within the field of Chemistry or Physics within a maximum of three (3) years before the final application date.
During certain circumstances, an earlier PhD can be acceptable.
Certain circumstances include leave due to illness, maternity leave, in trade unions, etc.
The applicant should have very good knowledge in English, spoken and written and previous knowledge in thin film technology.
The main duties involved in a post-doctoral position is to conduct research. Teaching and/or supervising PhD students may also be included, but up to no more than 20% of working hours. As a post doc you will be an important part of the consortium where you will actively work with both academy and industry. The research will focus on the next generation multi-functional coatings using CVD. Example of such a new coating is to use an intelligent combination of hardness, low friction and inertness. One way to achieve this is to use a multi-phase coating. Knowledge in this field will be beneficial.
Synthesis of thin films using the technique chemical vapor deposition (CVD) is a research area having a strong international position and has been ongoing at the inorganic chemistry program at the department of chemistry, Uppsala University since the 1970s. CVD is a technique where a solid material is deposited on a usually heated surface as a thin film. Examples on applications are within electronics and wear resistant hard films. Swedish industry is today world leaders in the field of thin hard and wear resistant films. The research will be conducted in this area together with groups from Chalmers, The Royal Institute of Technology, Sandvik Coromant AB and Seco Tools AB in the form of a consortium named CVD 2.0. More information about the project is available on www.CVD20.uu.se. The consortium will also be conducted together with several thin film groups at the Angstrom laboratory, including the PVD group at inorganic chemistry directed by Ulf Jansson (program responsible for the inorganic chemistry program).
Salary: Individually negotiated salary.
Starting date: 01-03-2019 or as otherwise agreed.
Type of position: Temporary position for two years.
