Development of computer codes for microkinetic and thermodynamic equilibria modelling may also be part of the research task. The research topic is mainly studies of CVD at low temperatures for group III nitrides and of similar chemical processes for other inorganic semiconductor or insulator materials, involving precursor design, phase diagram computations and kinetic simulations. The employee is expected to carry out scientific investigations and contribute to the development of the research area, and to participate in the supervision of PhD and undergraduate students. Some teaching may be part of the position. An important part of the work is the dissemination of the research by publication in internationally renowned journals and by presentations at scientific conferences. The research will be performed in cooperation with colleagues within the experimental as well as the theoretical research areas.

Qualifications
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.

The PhD exam should be within the scientific area of computational chemistry or physical chemistry/inorganic chemistry with emphasis on computational chemistry, with documented experience of quantum-chemical computations applied to systems of relevance to semiconductor chemical vapor deposition processes. Education within the CVD area is desirable. We would like to see that you have documented experience also of theoretical studies involving microkinetic simulations and/or fluid dynamics simulations. Experience of quantum-chemical studies of surface reactions at inorganic semiconductor or insulator materials is a merit, as is experience of teaching physical or inorganic chemistry courses.

Appointment time
Two years.

Project
The Institute for Analytical Sociology (IAS) seeks to fill a 4-year PhD position in Norrköping, Sweden. IAS is an interdisciplinary research center on the borderline between analytical sociology and computational social science.

The PhD-project will be conducted within the broader project “Mining for Meaning: The Dynamics of Public Discourse on Migration.” The candidate will join an international research group with backgrounds in sociology, political science, statistics, and machine learning that interprets large corpora of social text (from online forums, newspapers, parliamentary speeches) as “social sensors,” and applies computational text analysis to explain the processes by which collectively agreed-upon narratives arise from interactions between the public, the media, and political actors. Recent shifts in public opinion toward immigration––sweeping across Europe in the wake of the “refugee crisis” of 2015––provide a dramatic example of such dynamics. More information about the project can be found here: https://liu.se/en/research/computational-text-analysis

The candidate will be enrolled in IAS’s postgraduate training (including coursework totaling 60 ECTS points). Information on the PhD program can be found here:

●       interest in social media discourse and in (Swedish) politics,
●       skills in data management, preferably of textual data,
●       experience with text analysis, preferably in a social science or humanities context,
●       programming skills,
●       interest in teamwork and collaboration.

Fluency in English is required and, as we are dealing with text, Swedish language skills are desired.

Duties
Project duties include primarily the contribution to innovative research that is publishable in highly ranked social science journals.

Contributions to methodologically oriented journals and conference proceedings can also be part of the work, depending on the interest of the applicant.

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.

Appointment time
The appointment will be until further notice for a maximum of one year at a time. A doctoral student may not be employed during a period exceeding eight years. The total time of appointment must not exceed the equivalent of four years´ full time research training.

Starting date 
May 1, 2020 or by agreement.

Salary
The salary for PhD students is based on the department’s salary scale.

Application procedure
