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.

Department of Chemistry – Ångström Laboratory conducts research and education in chemistry. The Department has over 300 active persons, of which 200 are employees and the rest consists of guest researchers and students doing research at Master level. Annual turnover is just over 200 million SEK.

The Department of Chemistry – Ångström Laboratory has for many years hosted a research environment focused on the development of materials and their applications within the energy storage area: the Ångström Advanced Battery Centre. We develop novel electrode and electrolyte materials, characterize them, evaluate and improve them with respect to battery performance, and study fundamental chemical processes and properties using both experimental and computational techniques. The research is, as such, both fundamental and applied.

Research/Job area-Chemistry or Physics

Project Title- Photoelectron spectroscopy studies of battery metal electrodes

Location- Department of Chemistry – Ångström Laboratory, Sweden

Eligibility/Qualification- The applicant should have a PhD in Chemistry or Physics, and be very well acquainted with photoelectron spectroscopy techniques. Familiarity with synchrotron sources are recommended, as is experience of electron microscopy. A background within the Li battery research field and knowledge of electrochemistry are appreciated.

For employment as postdoc, the applicant should have a PhD exam or an international equivalent within a maximum of three years before the final application date. During certain circumstances, an earlier PhD can be acceptable.

Additional qualifications: The candidate must have excellent capabilities in written and oral English.
