Research position focusing on studies of electronic structure and charge dynamics in energy materials
Sort on published: 2018-12-05
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 research will be conducted within existing collaboration the division have with the synchrotron radiation facilities MAX IV and BESSY II on energy materials research. The focus will be on studies of solar cell materials (e.g. perovskites) within existing VR, STEM and SSF projects.
The research focuses on experimental studies of electronic structure of solid-state materials using time-resolved electron spectroscopy at the HELIOS laboratory as well as at different synchrotron light sources around the world. Studies of surface and bulk structure (both electronic and geometric) of applied systems such as highly-efficient solar cell materials are central.
Qualifications: Doctoral degree in physics. Experimental experience of electron spectroscopy with modern hemisphere and time-of-flight electron spectrometers as well as experience of UHV systems. Experience of using synchrotron light as well as in-situ preparation and characterization of well-defined surfaces (single crystals). The ability to obtain and use beamtimes at synchrotron facilities as well as experience of international research collaboration. Good communication skills in English are also required.
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: Individually negotiated salary.
Starting date: 01-02-2019 or as otherwise agreed.
