About Malmö University

Malmö University is an innovative, urban and international institute of higher education, located in the centre of Malmö. We have around 1,800 employees and 24,000 students. Our research and education are characterised by the role we believe a university should play in an open society — to contribute to sustainability and equality in a scientifically grounded way with external partners and stakeholders. Identifying and addressing the challenges of the future are of highest priority. Our researchers and students work collaboratively to create, share and spread knowledge in order to understand, explain and develop society — both locally and globally. 

Faculty

The Faculty of Education and Society is characterised by fresh ideas in the formulation of educational programmes and in its collaboration with schools, local authorities, organisations and business. The faculty, which has about 7,500 students and 320 employees, consists of six departments: Children, Youth and Society (BUS), Sport Sciences (IDV), Society, Culture and Identity (SKI), Culture, Languages and Media (KSM), Natural Science, Mathematics and Society (NMS) and School Development and Leadership (SOL).

The faculty has degree-awarding powers in all programmes, with bachelor and master degrees in Pre-School and Education as the goal, and in sports and educational programmes at third cycle level. There are also programmes for study and career guidance counsellors and special educational needs teachers.

Department

The PhD-students will be employed at the department of science, mathematics and society (NMS). The department has approximately 50 employees and take part education, research and developmental work. The research at NMS concerns teaching and learning in science, sustainability and mathematics in preschool, school and teacher education. The research adopts didactical, cultural, societal and practice related perspectives on knowledge, teaching and learning within the subjects.

The graduate school RelMaS

The doctoral research will be taking place within the national graduate school RelMaS, funded by the Swedish Research Council and offered in partnership between Stockholm, Malmö and Uppsala universities. The graduate school seeks to increase the research capacity in teacher education, in the areas of mathematics and science education.

The graduate school aims to develop practice-oriented research, which analyse and develop didactic models for making mathematics and science education relevant. RelMaS addresses the challenges of educating younger generations for navigating and transforming contemporary environmental and societal challenges, where mathematical and scientific knowledge is intertwined, in dealing with wicked problems now and in the future. This involves negotiating common views of the content, pedagogies and research foundations of school mathematics and science, to make them significant for active citizenship and to provide equitable access to the content to a diverse student population.

RelMaS has a total of 9 doctoral positions available, 3 of which will be placed at the Department science, mathematics and society (NMS). This the second round of the on-going research school RelMaS. The point of departure is to employ two in science education and one in mathematics education alternatively three with interdisciplinary approaches.   

The general research field of RelMaS addresses two interconnected dimensions of contemporary mathematics and science education:

  • the relevance of mathematics and science content in teacher education and schools for increased action competence and citizenship
  • the relevance of mathematics and science content and pedagogies to reach and engage a diverse student population.

Methodologically, these thematic dimensions are to be approached through collaborative research between schools and universities to produce results connected to school practice. Projects can be formulated as science education, mathematics education or interdisciplinary cutting across science and mathematics. 

The employment is planned as full-time and will be on a temporary basis for a period of four years and should lead to a dissertation (PhD thesis). Departmental duties (typically teaching and administration) at a level of at most 20% can be included in the position, in which case the employment period will be extended beyond the four years. PhD students are expected to study full-time and actively participate in the department’s activities.

Faculty

The Faculty of Technology and Society, TS, conducts education and research with a focus on technology and natural sciences, in close collaboration with industry and other social actors and higher education institutions. The two departments at the faculty are: Computer Science and Media Technology and Materials Science and Applied Mathematics.

Department

The Department of Materials Science and Applied Mathematics unite interdisciplinary education and research in three main areas: engineering, natural science and mathematics. Three engineering programs at bachelor level are offered: Building Engineering, Mechanical and Materials Engineering and Product Development and Design. In addition, the Science and Technology Foundation Year program is offered. A master-level program, Computational Materials Science, is offered since the autumn of 2019. The Department of Materials Science and Applied Mathematics offers an active and international environment. Recently, a PhD program in Applied Physics has been introduced.

Research at the department is conducted in three groups: materials science, applied physics and mathematics, and construction science. The research topics for the current PhD studentship in applied physics is described below.

Work duties

Those appointed to doctoral studentships shall primarily devote themselves to their studies. Those appointed to doctoral studentships may, work to a limited extent with educational tasks, research, artistic research and administration. However, duties of this kind may not comprise more than 20 per cent of a full-time post (Chapter 5, Section 2 of the Higher Education Ordinance).

We offer three PhD projects within the natural science group (note that only one PhD student will be hired). Specify which of the three projects you are interested in when writing your application.


Project A is an atomic and nuclear physics project. The overarching purpose of the project is to develop and exploit software and computational methods to better understand fundamental physical phenomena emanating from the interplay between the nucleus and the electrons in the atom. More precisely, the purpose is to explore the limits of understanding of a) nuclear properties in exotic nuclei and b) the Auger process with applications in radiation therapy by means of large-scale atomic structure calculations. To facilitate this endeavor, we will investigate the opportunity to make use of state-of-the-art nuclear structure calculations as well as experimental work at the synchrotron radiation facility MAX IV. In the project we also open-up for development of computational methods applicable to high-lying atomic states with applications to plasma diagnostics. Further questions about this project can be posed to jorgen.ekman@mau.se, per.jonsson@mau.se and rickard.du.rietz@mau.se


Project B is a joint astronomy and atomic physics project that will use high resolution infrared stellar spectra to characterize exoplanet host stars with the aim at better understanding the process of formation of different types of planets. This will include determining the type of star (the so-called stellar parameters, effective temperature, surface gravity and metallicity), and the abundances of elements in the star. Since the abundances of elements in the star are expected to be the same as those in the protoplanetary disk that any planets formed from, these abundances can reveal the chemistry of the planets and hence help advance our understanding of planetary formation. To be able to address such science questions, a very high precision and accuracy is needed in the stellar spectroscopic analysis, which is why the project will include identifying and determining atomic data of importance to this analysis. Stellar spectra will be collected using international telescopes and atomic data will be determined using both national and international laboratories as well as atomic structure calculations. Further questions about this project can be posed to henrik.jonsson@mau.se, henrik.hartman@mau.se, and/or hampus.nilsson@mau.se


Project C concerns high-accuracy atomic radiative data for astrophysical applications such as stellar, planetary and kilonova spectroscopy with focus on the near-infrared region. Laboratory high-resolution spectroscopy experiments and large-scale quantum mechanical calculations are utilized to derive accurate sets of atomic data needed for astrophysical spectroscopy. Local laboratories as well as international facilities are used, depending on the study. Method development is part of the project. Atomic data of interest are radiative lifetimes, transition rates and hyperfine structure. The applications are sought in state-of-the-art astronomical observations and surveys, to find the impact cases. Depending on the interest of the candidate the focus can be on experiments or calculations, and contribute in the application to astrophysics. Further questions about this project can be posed to henrik.hartman@mau.se, hampus.nilsson@mau.se, and/or per.jonsson@mau.se
