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.


Hereby advertises a position as

Postdoc in Semiconductor Materials

formally based at IFM 


The project focuses on the development of AlGaN with controlled doping for microwave and high-voltage applications. The work involves MOCVD growth with an emphasis on reducing background doping through the use of alternative precursors, adjustment of process parameters and reactor development. The project will be carried out in close collaboration with doctoral students and industrial partners within the Centre for III-Nitride technology, C3NiT at IFM. The applicant must therefore be willing to engage in and collaborate with our industrial partners and doctoral students, and to contribute to the implementation and demonstration of the research. The project also includes characterization of the optical and structural properties of AlGaN.

A Postdoc will essentially carry out research. The position may also involve teaching, but during no more than a fifth of work time.


We are looking for a highly motivated candidate who holds a PhD degree in physics or materials science. Knowledge of semiconductor materials and solid state physics is a requirement. Experience of MOCVD growth and characterization of the III nitrides is considered obligatory. Proven record of writing scientific articles is also required.

The position requires a doctorate or an equivalent degree from a foreign university. The doctorate shall have been obtained no longer than three years before the expiration date of the application.

Appointment time

Two years.

Starting date 
By agreement.


The University applies individual salary scales adapted to the experience of the employee and to the labour market.
