Post-doctoral position in Powder Diffraction Studies using Synchrotron Radiation
Post-doctoral position in Powder Diffraction Studies using Synchrotron Radiation at the Department of Materials and Environmental Chemistry. Reference number SU 619-0905-12. Deadline for applications: May 2, 2012.
Synchrotron powder diffraction
The Department of Materials and Environmental Chemistry (MMK), Stockholm University, is one of the leading departments in inorganic materials chemistry and structural characterization, www.mmk.su.se.
We seek a post-doctoral scientist to establish and develop cooperation between MMK, Uppsala University and research groups in Germany in synchrotron X-ray powder diffraction studies of technological important materials and competence development for characterising crystal structures and order/disorder in solids by synchrotron X-ray powder diffraction. Data will mainly be collected at PETRA-III in Hamburg, Germany. The work will involve to chart existing capabilities for measurements at ambient and non-ambient (e.g. high/low temperatures) conditions and different in situ cells (e.g. with applied electric/magnetic fields), establish contacts with beam line scientists, and then plan and carry out relevant experiments for materials of different research groups at Stockholm and Uppsala University. An additional part of the work is to carry out experiments to gain competence in characterizing disorder and local order in solids using synchrotron radiation and by analysis of pair distribution functions.
The applicant should have a PhD in Chemistry or Physics with a strong focus on powder diffraction. Experience of work at a synchrotron facility is an advantage. The applicant needs to have a PhD not older than 3 years.
The selection is based primarily on scientific excellence. Preference will be given to applicants with experience of using powder diffraction techniques for the study of inorganic materials.
Conditions of employment
The position is full time at the department of Materials and Environmental chemistry for one year with a possibility for a prolongation another year with a maximum of two years. However, 10–20 % of the time will be spent at synchrotron sources.
Stockholm University strives to be a work place that is free from discrimination and with equal opportunities for all.
