Ref. No. SU FV-1085-23
at the Department of Materials and Environmental Chemistry . Closing date: 11 April 2023.
Department of Materials and Environmental Chemistry (MMK), with about 160 employees, is a leading institution in materials synthesis and processing, structural characterization, and materials applications. It includes physical, inorganic, structural, and materials chemistry, the latter constituting one of the leading research directions at Stockholm University. Important characterization methods at the department today are X-ray, electron and neutron crystallography, scanning and transmission electron microscopy, and various spectroscopic methods.
This recruitment is connected to the Wallenberg Initiative Materials Science for Sustainability (WISE, wise-materials.org). WISE, funded by the Knut and Alice Wallenberg Foundation, is the largest-ever investment in materials science in Sweden and will encompass major efforts at Sweden’s foremost universities over the course of 10 years. The vision is a sustainable future through materials science. Read more: https://wise-materials.org
The project aims to explore new approaches on design and synthesis of metal-organic frameworks (MOFs) for removal of CO2 . The novel materials are expected to be used as sorbents for CO2 capture and catalysts for CO2 reduction reactions. Electron diffraction will be used to study the crystal structures and properties of the MOFs.
The successful candidate is expected to be responsible for design and synthesis MOFs; develop MOF-based technology for CO2 capture and utilization; and study MOFs using electron diffraction. The postdoc is expected to work closely with other members in the group and collaborate with researchers from academia and industry. In addition to research works, the successful candidate also needs to involve in scientific writing of publications and proposals, and take part in laboratory management.
Postdoctoral positions are appointed primarily for purposes of research. Applicants are expected to hold a Swedish doctoral degree or an equivalent degree from another country.
The degree must have been completed at latest before the employment decision is made, but no more than three years before the closing date. Applicants are expected to hold a degree in Chemistry, Material Science, Physical Chemistry or equivalent. An older degree may be acceptable under special circumstances. Special reasons refer to sick leave, parental leave, elected positions in trade unions, service in the total defense, or other similar circumstances as well as clinical attachment or service/assignments relevant to the subject area.
In the appointment process, special attention will be given to scientific excellence. The successful candidate will join a large research team of students, postdocs, and junior researchers. Preferred qualifications:
Terms of employment
The position involves full-time employment for a minimum of two years and a maximum of three years, with the possibility of extension under special circumstances. Start date 2023-05-01 or as per agreement.
All early-stage researchers recruited into the WISE program will be a part of the WISE Graduate School , an ambitious nationwide program of seminars, courses, research visits, and other activities to promote a strong multi-disciplinary and international network between PhD students, postdocs, researchers, and industry.
Stockholm University strives to be a workplace free from discrimination and with equal opportunities for all.
