PhD position for the development of organic electrode materials for environmentally friendly rechargeable batteries

Uppsala University is a comprehensive research-intensive university with a strong international standing. Our mission is to pursue top-quality research and education and to interact constructively with society. Our most important assets are all the individuals whose curiosity and dedication make Uppsala University one of Sweden’s most exciting workplaces. Uppsala University has 42,000 students, 7,000 employees and a turnover of SEK 6.7 billion.

The position is at the Department of Engineering, Div. of Nanotechnology and Functional Materials, Ångström Laboratory.

Duties/Project description: At the Div. of Nanotechnology and Functional Materials we are developing materials for use in rechargeable batteries which are built up of organic compounds in order to provide an alternative to existing battery technologies that are associated with low CO2 footprints.

The project is being carried out in close collaboration with the Organic Synthetic Chemistry group at the Department of Chemistry at BMC. The base of the electrode material consists of a conductive polymer and our strategy for obtaining competitive electrode material is to substitute the monomers of which the polymer is made up with high-capacity redox-active compounds. This position includes organic synthesis, polymerization of existing and developed compounds, electrochemical and spectroscopic characterization of polymeric electrode materials, and construction of battery prototypes. The work includes active participation in developing new materials and designing new target structures for organic synthesis.

Admission requirements: A person meets the general admission requirements for third-cycle courses and study programmes if he or she:

has been awarded a second-cycle qualification, or has satisfied the requirements for courses comprising at least 240 credits of which at least 60 credits were awarded in the second cycle, or has acquired substantially equivalent knowledge in some other way in Sweden or abroad.

Qualification requirements: To qualify for this position you should have a Master in chemistry or equivalent and have the ambition to specialize in experimental research aiming at the development of polymeric materials for battery applications. Proven practical experience in electrochemical methods and/or organic synthesis is also required. Knowledge in general organic synthesis, reaction kinetics, electron transfer theory, polymer chemistry and spectroscopy (UV-Vis, IR) are meritorious, which is also basic knowledge in computational chemistry.

Good communication skills and interest in working in a multidisciplinary research environment towards common goals is of great importance as well as an in-depth interest in understanding the processes that take place in polymeric battery materials.

You should be highly focused, structured and highly motivated and able to work independently as well as in team. Good collaborative ability is a requirement and previous experience of working in collaborative projects is desirable. You must have very good knowledge in English (verbally and in writing).

Application: The application should contain a brief description of the research interests and relevant experience, CV, publication list, copies of diplomas and grades, thesis work (or a draft thereof) and other relevant documents.

Ph.D. position in Condensed Matter Theory

Uppsala University is a comprehensive research-intensive university with a strong international standing. Our mission is to pursue top-quality research and education and to interact constructively with society. Our most important assets are all the individuals whose curiosity and dedication make Uppsala University one of Sweden’s most exciting workplaces. Uppsala University has 42,000 students, 7,000 employees and a turnover of SEK 6.7 billion.

Uppsala University hereby declares the following position to be open for application: Ph.D. position in Condensed Matter Theory at the Department of Physics and Astronomy. Starting date: April 2019. Research division: Materials theory.

Project description: We are looking for a highly motivated and ambitious Ph.D. student in condensed matter theory for a project on multiband and odd-frequency superconductivity. Odd-frequency superconductivity is a very unique superconducting state where the pair amplitude is odd in time, or equivalently frequency, the very opposite to the ordinary behavior of superconductivity. The overall aim of the Ph.D. project is to find new odd-frequency states in primarily multiband and multiorbital superconducting systems and to discern measurable signatures of this state. Examples range from the iron-based high-temperature superconductors, to nanoscale and hybrid systems. The project involves both analytical work using advanced many-body methods and large-scale numerical work. This Ph.D. project is part of a larger project focusing on new materials and mechanisms for odd-frequency superconductivity, funded by the European Research Council (ERC).

Research environment: The division of Materials theory at Uppsala University offers a world-class environment for materials theory research, with interests spanning from strongly correlated and topological states of matter to atomistic spin simulations and first-principles calculations of a very broad range of functional materials. The division currently consists of approximately 90 researchers, of which about a third are Ph.D. students. The project will be carried out in the research group of Prof. Annica Black-Schaffer, currently consisting of ten Ph.D. students and postdocs. For more information, please visit the group webpage: http://materials-theory.physics.uu.se/blackschaffer.

Employment: The position as a Ph.D. student is limited to four years of full-time studies, consisting of research and coursework. Other duties at the department, related to teaching and administration, may extend the position at a level of most 20%. Further information is available at www.physics.uu.se.

Application: The applicant should have a Master’s degree in physics, or equivalent, with a strong background in condensed matter theory or many-body theory. Prior experience with superconductivity is an advantage but not required. Fluency in both written and spoken English is an absolute prerequisite. The application should include a personal letter, explaining scientific interests and motivation for pursuing a Ph.D. degree, CV, and a verified list of course grades. If available, a Master’s thesis (finished or in draft form) can also be included. In addition, two letters of recommendation should be included in the application or, alternatively, sent directly by the letter writer to annica.black-schaffer@physics.uu.se with the subject line “Letter of Recommendation, Ph.D. Position 2019”.

Rules governing Ph.D. candidates are set out in the Higher Education Ordinance Chapter 5, §§ 1-7 and in Uppsala university’s rules and guidelines http://regler.uu.se/search/?hits=30&languageId=1&search-language_en=English

Uppsala University strives to be an inclusive workplace that promotes equal opportunities and attracts qualified candidates who can contribute to the University’s excellence and diversity. We welcome applications from all sections of the community and from people of all backgrounds. Uppsala University is striving to achieve a more even gender balance and women are especially encouraged to apply.

Salary: According to local agreement for PhD students and teaching assistants.
 
Starting date: 01-04-2019, temporary position ending 31-03-2023.

Type of position: Full time position.
