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 44.000 students, 7.100 employees and a turnover of SEK 7 billion.

A PhD student position in Primate Speciation and Population Genomics is available at the Department of Ecology and Genetics, Animal Ecology.

The Department of Ecology and Genetics is an international environment with staff and students from all over the world. Our research spans from evolutionary ecology and genetics to studies of ecosystems. For more information, see www.ieg.uu.se.

Project description: Our group is broadly interested in understanding how long-term evolutionary and short-term human-mediated processes shape biological diversity. The advertised project has the goal to study primate evolution from multiple angles and on different evolutionary time scales.

You will have the chance to study population and species level processes in a number of primate taxa using newly generated and publically available genomic data. Research topics include, but are not limited to:

  1. i) Speciation genomics and the role of ancient hybridization in driving species diversity. You will focus on a group of highly diverse African monkeys (guenons) that are renown for their ecological, morphological and karyotypic diversity and readily hybridize in captivity and the wild. Although the main focus will be on speciation genomics, there are possibilities to extend this project to include cytogenomics, morphological and ecological analyses, depending on the candidate’s interests.
  2. ii) Population and conservation genomics. Using target DNA capture from fecal samples you will study genetic diversity, population structure, demography and local adaptation in wild primate populations. The generated insights will have direct relevance for conservation decision making.

The exact project will be developed with the successful candidate and tailored towards their interests and skills.

Duties: The selected candidate will mainly engage in large-scale phylogenomic and population genomic analyses that require solid bioinformatics skills, but will also conduct work in the wet lab to produce genomic sequencing data from non-invasively collected low-quality samples. Duties include active participation in the research group activities, training of junior group members in relevant techniques and engagement in collaborative projects.

Qualifications required: To be eligible for a PhD-student position the applicant must hold a master degree (or equivalent) in evolutionary biology, bioinformatics, or a related field. The technical skills of the candidates will be evaluated based on the experience with large-scale sequence analysis, bioinformatics proficiency and experience with phylogenomic and population genomic studies. The ideal candidate will have a strong interest and documented knowledge in evolutionary biology, with a drive to understand processes shaping species diversity. Perseverance and high intrinsic motivation are required to work on non-model organisms using difficult samples and data. You will be highly reliable, driven and well-organized, curious and willing to think outside the box, with the ability to quickly acquire new skills. Candidates must be able to express themselves well in spoken as well as written English.

Qualifications desired: Previous experience with wet lab molecular techniques, ideally with low-quality samples, is highly desired.

Application: The application should include 1) a cover letter describing your research interests, your proficiency with molecular laboratory techniques and programming, experience in handling genomic data, other technical skills relevant for the project, as well as other qualifications that makes you a suitable candidate, 2) your CV, including any produced publications, 3) a copy of your master degree, your course grades and a copy of your master thesis, 4) the names and contact information of two-three reference persons (e-mail address and phone no; you are welcome to include this information at the end of your cover letter or as attachment under point 6 of the online application form).

PhD position in experimental hadron physics

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 44.000 students, 7.100 employees and a turnover of SEK 7 billion.

The research conducted at the Department of Physics and Astronomy encompasses a wide range of physics topics, distributed over ten divisions. The department is located in the Ångström laboratory and employs nearly 400 people, 125 of whom are doctoral students. It offers a broad physics curriculum to undergraduate and graduate students, participation in nationally and internationally leading projects for researchers, and opportunities for partnership with industry and various outreach activities.

One of the most challenging problems in contemporary physics is to understand the strong force that binds together quarks and gluons into hadrons, e.g. protons and neutrons. Hadron physics is a wide, dynamic research field where the strong interaction is investigated. The research of the Uppsala hadron physics group is carried out within international collaborations at facilities in China (BESIII, Beijing) and Germany (PANDA at FAIR), and in close collaboration with local theoreticians. An overview of the research activities available at http://www.physics.uu.se/research/nuclear-physics/.

The main physics interests of the Uppsala group are studies of the production and decay of hyperons. Hyperons are three-quark systems like the protons but where one or several of the light quarks are replaced by one or several heavier quarks, e.g. strange quarks. Hyperons give insights into the strong interaction at low energies and help us in the search for processes beyond the Standard Model. The future antiproton facility PANDA at FAIR has unique possibilities to study several different aspects of hyperons. Until the full PANDA is taken into operation, interesting studies of hyperon structure can be performed in the predecessor, the FAIR Phase 0 experiment PANDA@HADES.

This PhD student will participate in the collection and analysis of the first data from PANDA@HADES, with focus on hyperon Dalitz decays and radiative decays. The PhD student is expected to participate in meetings and workshops abroad and work with simulations, reconstruction , analysis and interpretation of data, as well as experimental service tasks.

Qualifications: The candidate shall have completed her/his MSc studies in physics (or equivalent), preferably with an orientation towards nuclear and/or particle physics. Basic knowledge in programming is required, as well as good oral and written proficiency in English and the capability to work both independently and in a team.

Applications should include a brief description of research interests and relevant experience, CV, copies of certificates and diplomas, MSc thesis (or a draft thereof), a reference list and other documents, that the applicant wishes to claim.

Uppsala University is striving to achieve a more even gender balance in its research and teaching staff and women are especially invited to apply for this position.

Rules governing PhD students are set out in the Higher Education Ordinance chapter 5, §§ 1-7 and in Uppsala University’s rules and guidelines http://regler.uu.se/?languageId=1.

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.

Salary: According to local agreement for PhD students.

Postdoc position in liquid metal anodes for lithium and sodium 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 44.000 students, 7.100 employees and a turnover of SEK 7 billion.

The Department of Chemistry – Ångström conducts research and education in the chemistry field. The department has more than 230 employees and has a turnover just over 220 million SEK. At the department’s seven programs, we conduct very successful research of a high international standard. We have a large number of externally funded research projects, often with international cooperation and we see continued good growth in our subject area. The department has education assignments in engineering and civil engineering programs and master’s programs. More information is available on our website.

The Department of Chemistry – Ångström Laboratory has for many years hosted a research environment focused on the development of materials and their applications within the energy storage area: the Ångström Advanced Battery Centre. We develop novel electrode and electrolyte materials, characterize them, evaluate and improve them with respect to battery performance, and study fundamental chemical processes and properties using both experimental and computational techniques. The research is, as such, both fundamental and applied.

Subject description: The primary focus of the project will be on the development of liquid metal anodes for lithium, sodium and other batteries. This involves investigating alloy systems (e.g. Na-K, Ga-In) which are liquid at close to room temperature for use as anodes in rechargeable batteries. Liquid metals may offer inherent deformability or higher electronic conductivity than solid metallic anodes. Different aspects of such systems will be studied including material properties, electrochemical reactions as well as how they can be used in full devices. The ultimate aim of this project is to increase knowledge and understanding in this field and take the next steps in the development of liquid metal anodes for rechargeable batteries.

Work duties: The project will be carried out in Uppsala University in close collaboration with colleagues working in the Ångström Advanced Battery Centre. The main duties of the position will be to conduct research into liquid metal anodes for lithium, sodium or other battery technologies. Specifically, this will involve preparation of alloy materials to act as anodes, electrode preparation, cell assembly, and electrochemical and materials characterization. A variety of electrochemical measurement techniques (e.g. cyclic voltammetry, galvanostatic cycling) and characterization methods (e.g. X-ray diffraction, electron microscopy, etc.) will be used to investigate promising anodes.

The postdoc is expected to perform high quality research, with the aim of disseminating resulting works through high impact peer-reviewed journals or conference proceedings. Teaching may also be included, but up to no more than 20% of working hours.

Requirements: For employment as postdoc, the applicant should have a PhD exam or an international equivalent within a maximum of three (3) years before the final application date. During certain circumstances, an earlier PhD can be acceptable. Certain circumstances include leave due to illness, maternity leave, in trade unions, etc.
