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.

We are looking for a Senior Research Engineer within the department of Physics Chemsitry and Biology, IFM

Your future work assignments  
Your tasks will consist of two principal components where one comprise development of in situ methods for advanced electron microscopy of the 2-dimensional material MXene (~40%) and the other comprise the service for colleagues at the department (~40%). In addition, there will be a possibility to propose own research activities, preferably in line with the department activities (~20%). Your results will be communicated in journal articles and at international conferences by yourself and by colleagues. You are therefore expected to contribute to an active scientific discussion and to use your expertise to advance the understanding.

Your future workplace

You will work at the Thin Film Physics Division, and specifically in the Electron Microscopy of Materials unit (EMM). The EMM maintains the electron microscopy laboratory at LiU, including a double corrected and monochromated Titan3, which the candidate will use as the main tool for characterization. The research immediate environment is focused on Materials Science and is successful in attracting large grants for work with application inspired fundamental research. Materials include thin films for hard coatings, semiconductors for high power, high frequency applications, semiconductor nanowires, nanoparticles for catalytic applications and 2D materials such as graphene and above all MXene for energy storage and catalytic applications. 

Your qualifications 
We are looking for someone who has a PhD in materials Science, Inorganic Chemistry or similar and good communication and writing skills. 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.

Form of employment
