PhD Scholarship in Physics at Chalmers University of Technology

Chalmers University of Technology is seeking a highly motivated PhD student with an interest in physics. The duration of this scholarship is 1 year to 5 years. All students regardless of citizenship are eligible to apply. Applicants should apply before March 31, 2015.

The aim of this PhD project is to investigate impurity transport driven by collisions and turbulence, and to study the synergetic effects between magnetohydrodynamic instabilities and impurities. We are looking for a highly motivated and talented individual with experience and interest in analytical and numerical modelling. The goal with a PhD-position is to develop general research proficiency and a high competence within your specific research area. As a PhD-student, you will primarily conduct research, often together with other researchers and PhD-students.

You will also follow PhD courses, be involved in teaching activities, and participate in international conferences and networks. You are expected to write a licentiate thesis within 2-3 years and defend your doctoral thesis within 4-5 years. The total time period for the position is limited to four years full time, or five years with 20% teaching load. You will be employed by Chalmers and will receive a salary according to current salary agreements.

The employment is composed of a maximum full-time four-year doctoral programme and a maximum one year of department duties, including teaching, equivalent to a maximum of 20% of the total working time. The employment is thus limited to a total of five years. The employment is tied to successful progress of doctoral studies, evaluated at one and three years.

Application Requirements
To qualify as a PhD student, you must have a MSc degree corresponding to at least 240 higher education credits in physics. The position requires good communication skills in written and spoken English. Applicants who do not have English or a Scandinavian language as their mother tongue need to have passed an English language test, for example TOEFL 550 (paper-based) / TOEFL 213 (computer-based), prior to admission.

As for all PhD studies, a genuine interest and curiosity in the subject matter and excellent analytical and communication skills in speaking and in writing are required. Prior experience with high temperature plasma physics is considered as a strong advantage.
