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

Stretchable conductive nanocomposites are essential for the development of soft and stretchable neural interfaces. High performance nanocomposites require control of both the nanomaterial properties and the filler-elastomer interactions. In this project, the postdoc will synthesize nanomaterials and develop novel composites for stretchable conductors and neural electrodes. This includes synthesis of tailored noble metal nanomaterials, tuning of filler-elastomer interactions, and development of stretchable conductors and electrodes. The materials will be characterized on all levels, from the pure nanomaterials to the electromechanical performance of the composites. Applications around neural interfaces will be developed in collaboration with processing experts and external collaborators.

As a postdoc you are expected to assist in the leadership of the scientific work within your area and to guide students. Responsibilities can increase in relation to demonstrated abilities.

Qualifications
The position requires a doctorate degree or a foreign degree that is equivalent to a doctorate. The doctorate degree shall have been obtained no longer than three years before the expiration date of the application.

A suitable background for this position is a PhD in chemistry, materials science, applied physics, biotechnology, or a related field. Experience in nanomaterial synthesis is a merit. Desirable personal skills and traits for the position are highly motivated, ambitious, problem solving skills and teamwork ability. Research at the Laboratory of Organic Electronics is carried out predominantly in English, so relative fluency is favorable.

We are now looking to appoint a postdoc in the field of Gender, studies with a focus on critical data visualization,
formally based at the Department for Thematic Studies (Tema).

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 position concerns research in the broad area of critical data visualization studies. The holder of the position is expected to contribute to both inter/trans-disciplinary feminist research and visualization design research. Feminist research on visual analysis tools is an emerging international field of inquiry and addresses how data and digital visualization technologies are entangled in the practices of doing and making science but also in the norms and values of social groups. The project connected to this position will focus on how visualization tools impact the ways that data is understood, imagined, valued or dismissed through situated, visual analysis practices with and by domain experts, and how these understandings are entangled in collaborations with visualization designers and tool development The holder of the position will engage with critical analyses of intersectional power dynamics in visualization practices and technologies as well as questions about social justice and the design of effective tools, where ‘effective’ is unpacked. The research will involve ethnographic fieldwork in expert settings and is expected to result in pragmatic recommendations for designing more ethical, responsible, and inclusive visual analysis tools. This position will be shared between the Unit of Gender Studies and Media & Information Technology, offering a unique opportunity to work closely with both feminist and visualization researchers. The successful candidate, who could come from a broad range of backgrounds, will have a shared physical presence at both departments.

The position consists of own research, and teaching within the area of the position, in collaboration with other co-workers in the Unit of Gender Studies and Media & Information Technology, and it includes dissemination of research results. The holder of the position is expected to have excellent collaboration skills and to be a constructive and creative co-worker in an interdisciplinary research environment. Part of the working tasks are developing cross faculty collaborations in critical data visualization as a research and teaching area within the Unit of Gender Studies and Media & Information Technology, and potentially participating in teaching at both basic and advanced levels.   

Documented academic proficiency in the fields of Gender Studies and/or Data Visualization is a requirement for the position.

Documented academic proficiency in one or several or the following areas, is particularly qualifying:

  • Gender studies
  • Science & Technology Studies
  • Feminist Technoscience
  • Critical Design Studies
  • Data Visualization
  • Human-Computer Interaction
  • Research Through Design
