PhD student position in Molecular Doping of Conjugated Polymers

We are looking for a highly motivated PhD student to join our research group at Chalmers. Your project will be part of the ERC funded project “Electrical Modulation of Elastic Moduli (Elmo)”. The goal of your research will be to understand how molecular doping influences the mechanical properties of conjugated polymers. You will then use the knowledge gained to produce stimuli-responsive fibers that can be switched from soft and stretchable to stiff and tough, and use those fibers for the fabrication of electronic textile devices. You will work closely with several postdocs and PhD students in our group, as well as with several external collaborators, and together study the mechanical and electrical properties of different types of conjugated polymers and polymer fibers.

Information about the researchThe Müller Research Group focuses on the physical chemistry and materials science of organic semiconductors, polymer blends and composites, and develops new plastic materials for use in the fields of wearable electronics and energy technology. All research is conducted in co-operation with other universities/institutes and/or industry. Presently, the group consists of 1 Professor, 2 Postdocs and 9 PhD students.

Major responsibilities
The majority of your working time is devoted to your own research, in collaboration with postdocs and students at Chalmers, as well as external collaborators in academia and industry.

However, exploring and predicting the performances of many different designs through physical testing is a very costly approach.

As a PhD student you will learn and develop new methods and tools for exploiting the results from physical testing in digital models, as a means to reuse the results from physical testing to validate new designs and their ranges of validity. You are expected to develop your own scientific concepts and communicate the results of your research verbally and in writing, both in Swedish and in English. 

The methods and tools are a part of building next generation digital design and engineering capabilities (exploiting AI and Machile Learning) for product development, targeting a wider and faster exploration of the design space.
 
Qualifications
To qualify as a PhD student, you must have a master’s level degree corresponding to at least 240 higher education credits in mechanical engineering, automation, applied mechanics, aerospace engineering, applied physics, or similar.

Interest in applied, industrial, product development, along with a strong interest in modelling, simulation and computational methods and tools. Good written and oral communication skills in English is required, and in Swedish meriting. We believe that you are curious and open for interdisciplinary challenges, collaborative oriented both with academic and industrial colleauges. You possess a passion for combining theory and practice.

The position requires sound verbal and written communication skills in English. If Swedish is not your native language, Chalmers offers Swedish courses.

Meritorious: 
– Good written and oral communication skills in Swedish.
– Knowledge in Data Analytics and Machine Learning and AI methods, combined with knowledge in statistical software (e.g., JMP) and ML/AI software platforms (e.g. TensorFlow).
