Exciting research for PhD students is waiting ahead. Co-funded by EU Marie Skłodowska-Curie Actions, we are now opening as many as 6 projects in nanoscience and nanotechnology – in physics and chemical physics – for application.

Initial deadline for applications: August 25, 2020

Candidates can freely apply for one or more of the following projects:

  •     Energy saving LEDs based on branched nanowires

  •     Tandem solar cells combining nanowires with perovskites

  •     Surfaces at the atomic scale

  •     X-ray methods for photon detection

  •     Mapping charge carriers in space and time

  •     Coherent ultrafast spectroscopy

About us: NanoLund, the Center for Nanoscience at Lund University

The doctoral positions will be hosted by one of the research groups in NanoLund, the Center for Nanoscience at Lund University. Engaging more than 50 research groups in the faculties of engineering, sciences and medicine at  Lund University, and with more than 130 PhD students, we are Sweden largest environment in nanoscience. One of our guiding principles is to be a Great Place to do Nanoscience: to be an international, highly visible nanoscience center that offers exceptional scientific opportunities, training, and career development. We do this through a strong culture of openness and by offering access to a wide range of state-of-the-art capabilities within characterization, nanofabrication and modelling.

What we offer:

All candidates will be engaged in frontline research in basic and/or applied sciences, and will receive training through courses in scientific as well as in transferable skills. We are offering a highly collaborative research environment, as well as an international network of cooperation partners from industry, academy and public authorities. We offer full-time employment for four years.

Who are you?

  • You have a recent degree in physics, chemical physics or a related field.
  • You are enthusiastic about tackling research problems and can work independently. 
  • You enjoy interdisciplinary research and take keen interest in learning and working in teams.

How to apply

We look forward to receiving your application via the Lund University application management system VARBI by 25th of August 2020.
