LINKÖPING UNIVERSITY
Hereby advertises a position as PhD student in Applied Physics (Computational simulation and modelling of novel organic thermoelectric materials) – ESR 9 formally based at at the Department of Science and Technology, Campus Norrköping.

Research area
The PhD position will be based at the Laboratory of Organic Electronics (LOE), belonging to the Department of Science and Technology, at the university’s Norrköping Campus. The LOE is renowned for its world-leading research on electronic devices based on organic electroactive materials. Its primary theme involves the coupling of ions and electrons as signal carriers for applications in printed electronics, organic energy- and electrochemical devices, and organic bioelectronics. Currently, the research staff of the Laboratory includes about 150 researchers (professors, senior and junior scientists and PhD students). 

The present position is a part of the European Marie Skłodowska-Curie Innovative Training Network HORATES bringing together eight academic institutions, including universities and research centers, and five companies, from six EU countries. The network is supported by five more partners, including two companies. The mission of the HORATES network is to use the large expertise on all aspects of hybrid and organic thermoelectrics that is available in the EU for (a) the strategic training of excellent young researchers in an emerging, interdisciplinary field and (b) the rational development of prototype energy harvesters, inspired by actual market demand.  This will happen by giving 15 PhD students (Early Stage Researchers, ESRs) exposure to a wide spectrum of expertise.

In HORATES, we fuse the synthetic organic expertise with the expertise in processing and characterization to provide stable, high-performance materials and recipes for upscaling and device fabrication. Constant interaction at all stages with theory and multiscale modelling will guide the process. Crucial for the success the Programme is a multidisciplinary and inter-sectorial network, which will allow the ESR to genuinely discover and/or feed her/his attitude while having an impact on a relevant scientific and technological field. HORATES also has the mission of disseminating it’s scientific and technological achievements to a broad audience (scientific community, stakeholders, general public etc.). 

The HORATES network is composed by: Ruprecht-Karls-Universität Heidelberg (DE), Fondazione Istituto Italiano di Tecnologia (IT), Chalmers Tekniska Högskola AB (SE), Agencia Estatal Consejo Superior de Investigationes Cientificas (ES), Linköpings Universitet (SE), Rijksuniversiteit Groningen (NL), Technische Universität Chemnitz (DE), Centre National de la Recherche Scientifique (FR), University of Strasbourg (FR), Eurecat Centre Tecnològic (ES), Innovation Lab (DE) and Hot Disk AB (SE). During the programme, exchange between private sector and academia is promoted by at least one secondment per ESR with the industrial partners and beneficiaries. 

Duties
The PhD student will perform theoretical simulation and modeling of novel organic materials for thermoelectric applications. The modeling will be ranging from the ab initio and Molecular Dynamics simulations on the atomistic level to the drift-diffusion device simulation on the system level to answer the fundamental questions concerning material morphology, electronic structure, transport- and thermoelectric properties, and many others. The simulation and modeling activity will be carried out in a tight collaboration with the members of the HORATES network where the obtained theoretical results will help to understand and guide the material and device design for better and enhanced performance, and, vice versa, the input from the experiment will provide an essential motivation for the theory. 

The PhD student will be placed in the group of Theory and Modelling at the Laboratory of Organic Electronics lead by Prof. Igor Zozoulenko. Currently, the group consists of one professor, one associate professor, eighet research associates/postdocs and three PhD students, https://liu.se/en/research/theory-and-modeling-for-organic-electronics  As a PhD student you will primarily devote yourself to your research. As a PhD student you are limited to work with education and administration up to 20 percent of full time. 

Qualifications
Applications are welcomed from candidates with M.Sc. degree (or equivalent) in physics, material science, chemistry, electrical engineering or related fields. Experience with ab initio or molecular dynamics calculations, and computer and programing/scripting skills are highly desirable. The interested candidate should be strongly self-motivated, to show a keen interest in science and fundamental research, and be willing to work in a team. Good communications skills and proficiency in spoken and written English are required.

LINKÖPING UNIVERSITY
Hereby advertises up to two (2) Postdoc positions within Computer Science in the area of Security in Critical Infrastructure (RICS) formally based at Dept. of Computer and Information Science

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

The postdoctoral researchers are expected to contribute to our collaborations both nationally and internationally.

We offer an internationally renowned research environment with excellent facilities and a wide network of collaboration in industry and academia in Sweden. The research environment at the real-time systems Laboratory includes several PhD students working in the areas of critical infrastructure security, system modelling and verification, and future networks load management and security (edge, 5G, vehicular). A postdoc will benefit from our wide network of collaborators, friendly atmosphere, and strengthen the excellent research ongoing in the lab in collaboration with existing and forthcoming PhD students. We welcome candidates who are looking for a future career in academia or public/private sector research positions in Sweden, and are looking to grow as a researcher in our environment. The candidate is given the chance of, and training in contribution towards acquiring research grants by the senior faculty members.

RICS is a national research centre on Resilient Information and Control Systems that aims to enhance research competence in Sweden in related areas. It has recently been evaluated and extended to continue for three more years 2021-2023. In this context we are looking for 2 excellent candidates who can contribute to one of the following topics each.

  1. One postdoc will enhance and apply an existing tool for modelling SCADA models with the goal of quantifying security risks to assets and analysing their impact on system safety. The work will build upon an earlier collaboration with University of Cardiff within the RICS project where a blueprint for analysing dependencies using the iDepend tool has been created, and draw benefits from the knowledge within the lab in the area of safety assurance (e.g. GSN, STPA).
  2. One postdoc will contribute to foundations for trusted computing and create algorithms for remote attestation in cyber-physical systems. The work involves designing and evaluating novel security mechanisms building on trusted components (such as Keystone) and investigate secure distributed algorithms for state management (e.g. distributed ledgers) to enable software and firmware updates.

Qualifications
The position requires a doctorate or an equivalent degree from a foreign university in relevant areas of computer science. The doctorate shall have been obtained no longer than three years before the date of application.

Publications in first class journals and highly competitive conferences in areas relevant to the work, i.e. cyber-physical system safety and security, security risk analysis, attack modelling, cryptology, intrusion detection, and distributed algorithms is considered a merit. Earlier experience in tool development and network analysis within the automotive or industrial control systems area is prioritized.

Excellent communication skills in English, both verbally and written, is an absolute necessity.

During the RICS project, meetings with the industrial collaborators will be in Swedish for the most part and working knowledge of Swedish language for collaboration with the stakeholders is beneficial.

Appointment time
A Postdoc is appointed until further notice, but for no longer than two years. The appointment can be renewed if there are special reasons.

Starting date 
During 2021, by agreement

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

Union representatives
Information about union representatives, see Help for applicants.
