Om jobbet

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.

LINKÖPING UNIVERSITY

Hereby advertises a position as

PhD student in Materials Science (within the Competence Centre FunMat-II)
formally based at Nanostructured Materials at the Department of Physics, Chemistry, and Biology (IFM)

Duties

FunMat-II is a Competence Centre funded by VINNOVA (the Swedish Agency for Innovation Systems) in materials science and surface engineering at Linköping University with partners at Uppsala University, the research institute Swerea KIMAB, and numerous Swedish and international industry partners. At Linköping University, the Divisions of Nanostructured Materials, Thin Film Physics, and Theory and Modeling participate.

As a member of Nanostructured Materials you will conduct application inspired fundamental research on materials synthesis and materials behavior. The work is primarily experimental. This position is part of the competence center FunMat-II, which means that you will be part of a larger research team that is doing collaborative research. The team members are from Linköping university and industrial companies that are partners of the center. You will be part of one or several research projects, which are headed by a senior researcher and a steering group.

The position comprises experimental research within the field of designing new materials, specially extremely hard coatings for high temperature applications. The research includes synthesis by arc deposition, and you will focus on the understanding of how the plasma generated during the synthesis affects the materials synthesis and materials properties. It means that the research includes plasma diagnostics and materials characterization by advanced experimental tools.

As a PhD student you will primarily devote yourself to your research. As a PhD student you are limited to work with education and administration up to 20 percent of full time.

Qualifications

M.Sc. or equivalent degree in, physics, materials science, or similar. Documented interest and experience in hard thin films materials is an advantage.

Qualified to PhD studentships are only those who are or have been admitted to graduate studies.

International applicants must attach a statement on oral and written English skill; IELTS (Academic) 6.5 overall (no subscore below 5.5) or TOEFL (iBT) 90 (written, minimum 20).

Appointment time

The appointment will be until further notice for a maximum of one year at a time. A doctoral student may not be employed during a period exceeding eight years. The total time of appointment must not exceed the equivalent of four years´ full time research training.

Starting date 
By agreement/as soon as possible.
