PhD student position on microscopic modeling of 2D materials

HR_Kollage_15_600x150px.jpg

Information about the project
This project aims at a microscopic understanding of the strong light-matter coupling regime in van der Waals heterostructures consisting of vertically stacked, atomically thin 2D materials. The focus lies on gaining insights into the impact of the twist angle between two monolayers and the resulting moire exciton features on the strong coupling regime.

Strong light-matter coupling is a special regime of electromagnetic interaction, in which light and matter intermix to form new common quasi-particles called polaritons. These quasi-particles possess a set of intriguing optical and electronic properties. Specifically, polaritons may have much smaller effective mass than excitons due to partial light character, while at the same time they have much stronger interparticle interactions than in pure photonic systems due to the underlying exciton-exciton coupling. This interesting combination of properties of polaritons makes the strong coupling regime interesting both from the fundamental as well as technological perspecdtive.

The main goal of this PhD work is to develop a sophisticated theoretical approach based on the density matrix formalism, which allows us to microscopically model polaritons and their impact on optics, non-equilibrium dynamics and transport in van der Waals heterostructures. The aim is to explain exisiting experiments and to guide future experimental studies towards a better understanding of the moire exciton polariton physics in these technologically promising nanomaterials.

The position is part of the KAW project ”Plasmon-exciton coupling at the attosecond-subnanometer scale”, which involves a close collaboration between several groups in experiment and theory.

Major responsibilities
Your major responsibility is to pursue the goals of your research project. You are also expected to develop own ideas and find your own ways in tackling research challenges. The position may also include some level of teaching duties as well as taking part in the supervision of bachelor and master students. Another important aspect involves national and international collaboration with experimental research groups.

Position summary
Full-time temporary employment. The position is limited to a maximum of five years.

Qualifications
To qualify as a PhD student, you should hold a Master degree in physics and have a strong interest and to a certain extent also experience in quantum mechanics and basic concepts of many-particle theory. You should already have some skills in programming. Finally, you should enjoy working in a collaborative environment including interactions with both theoreticians and experimentalists. The position requires sound verbal and written communication skills in English. Chalmers offers Swedish courses.

PhD student for LCA of new battery chemistries

HR_Kollage_14_600x150px.jpg


Information about the division and the research
The Division of Environmental Systems Analysis conducts research to assess environmental impact of technological change and to explore ways to transform technical systems to better meet environmental and resource constraints. Our research requires cross- and transdisciplinary efforts combining environmental assessment, such as life cycle assessment, with approaches from social science, such as innovation system and transition studies. Stakeholders are often engaged in our research. The division has around 35 staff members, faculty and PhD-students with diverse expertise, including engineers, natural and social scientists. We also offer courses in areas related to our research.

Current lithium-ion battery technology suffers from the use of several geochemically scarce metals with associated environmental challenges. This project will therefore investigate the environmental and resource performance of three future battery chemistries. The over-arching question is: Are there new battery chemistries that can deliver adequate performance and notably reduce the use of scarce metals and environmental impacts in comparison with current state-of-the-art lithium-ion batteries? To partly answer this question, life cycle assessments (LCA) will be conducted for two of the most promising future chemistries: lithium-sulfur and all-solid-state batteries. An additional new battery chemistry will be selected and assessed during the project and all new chemistries will be compared to current lithium-ion batteries. The project is funded by the Swedish Energy Agency and involves collaboration with battery researchers.

Major responsibilities
As a PhD student you will have a responsibility to pursue your own doctoral studies within the area of environmental systems analysis as well as to undertake doctoral courses. You are expected to work independently, have the ability to plan and organize your work but also work in close collaboration with other researchers and partner industries. You should be able to communicate scientific results, both orally and in written form, in English. In addition to research and coursework, you are expected to take part in seminars and conferences, both national and international. The doctoral program is supposed to lead to the doctoral degree, equivalent to four years of full-time studies. Since there are also teaching obligations, the position is expected to be five years long.

Position summary
Full-time temporary employment. The position is limited to a maximum of five years.

Qualifications
You have a master’s level degree corresponding to at least 240 higher education credits in Industrial Ecology or similar, and preferably conducted your master thesis project on life cycle assessment or a similar area within environmental systems analysis. Preferably, you have experience of working in an interdisciplinary setting, bridging detailed technical knowledge with environmental systems studies, and your communication skills in English (written and spoken) are excellent. Experience of work in academic research, especially LCA work in practice in the form of data collection and hands-on modelling work, is a strong merit. Communication skills in Swedish is a benefit and so is experience from working with, or having knowledge about, batteries and battery chemistries.

The fundamental scientific questions that need to be addressed are primarily related to the nature and role of the flow-chemistry coupling  in nanoscale reactive systems.

The project will be part of a larger research program that involves several other research groups at the Chemistry and Physics Departments of Chalmers. The overall goal of the project “Single Particle Catalysis in Nanoreactors” is to further push our understanding of catalytic reaction to the single particle level.

As a postdoc in this project, you will be working at the Division of Chemical Physics, and in close collaboration with the Division of Fluid Dynamics. Working as a postdoc requires a great deal of creativity and ability to think “outside the box”. Furthermore, as the current project involves close cooperation with theoretical and experimental partners at two divisions, collaborative and communicative skills are essential.

Information about the research group
The Chemical Physics Division at the Department of Physics operates at the interface between materials science, nanoscience, catalysis, nanoplasmonics and in situ spectroscopy, with a particular focus on the development of sustainable energy systems. Themes include, for instance, alternative fuel production, emission control, energy storage, and fuel cells. The research is interdisciplinary with strong connections between fundamental and applied science. Chemical Physics Division is a dynamic and international environment that strives for scientific excellence through teamwork and joint experimental and theoretical efforts.

The theoretical activities at Chemical Physics focus on electronic structure calculations within the density functional theory together with mean-field modeling and Monte-Carlo simulations for reaction kinetics.  

The reactive flow modelling at Fluid Dynamics is mainly focused on dispersed multiphase systems, flow through porous media and nanoscale reactive flows. A broad range of theoretical and numerical frameworks are used to analyze systems of different scale and level of complexity.
