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.

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

Your work will predominantly focus on the research of nanolaminated MAX phases and their 2-dimensional derivative MXenes. Your immediate research environment at LiU is counted among the top four in MXene research. Your results will be communicated in journal articles and at international conferences by yourself and by colleagues. You are therefore expected to work closely with your colleagues, contribute to an active scientific discussion and to use your expertise to advance the current understanding.


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.

We also believe that you have a solid record in advanced electron microscopy and spectroscopy methods, image simulations and/ or calculations. You're probably a very motivated and driven individual, capable of working both alone and in a team, and with multiple projects in parallel. We also believe that you possess good communication and writing skills.
