Postdoctoral Position in Material Science at Lund University

Lund University is offering postdoc position in nanotechnology. Successful candidate will have funding to work and study for 2 years in Sweden. Applications are welcome before January 06, 2019.

LTH forms the Faculty of Engineering at Lund University, with approximately 9 000 students. The research carried out at LTH is of a high international standard and we are continuously developing our teaching methods and adapting our courses to current needs.

The Department of Physics is with a staff of about 350 scientists and educators one of the largest departments within Lund University. There are seven research divisions and a number of research centra within the department. The research activities at the department cover a broad spectrum of modern physics. www.fysik.lu.se/english.

The research at the division of Solid State Physics is focused around different aspects of semiconductor physics, ranging from materials science to quantum physics, to different applications. The division also leads NanoLund, the major interdisciplinary research environment within nanoscience and nanotechnology at Lund University. Lund Nano Lab is a central key facility for fabrication of material and devices on the nanoscale. The division is also heavily involved in the undergraduate education, especially within the "Engineering Nanoscience" program.

The last decade, our research within the area of one-dimensional semiconductor structures, so called nanowires, has been at the international forefront. So far, our three main areas have been: epitaxial growth of nanowires, fundamental properties studied with transport physics and optical physics, and more applied nanoelectronics. Nanowires show efficient light absorption induced by their geometry, and only about 10 % of a surface needs to be covered by nanowires in order to have the same light absorption in a thin film of the same material leading to strong materials savings. More information is found at: www.ftf.lth.se and www.nano.lu.se

Subject description Electrical and optical characterization of nanowires with energy relevance.

Work duties The main duties involved in a post-doctoral posistion is to conduct research. Teaching may also be included, but up to no more than 20% of working hours. The position shall include the opportunity for three weeks of training in higher education teaching and learning. The postdoctoral fellow is expected to interact with the master students and the PhD students in the research group and contribute to meetings and seminars.

Within this project basic as well as applied research related to development of III-V semiconductor nanowires will be conducted, especially with respect to materials used in optoelectronic and solar cell applications. Time resolved optical characterization will be used to gain insight into the materials. This will include studies of surface passivation. The research will also involve electro-optical investigations, such as photoconductivity studies and will have strong links to materials science as well as to device fabrication. Materials characterization by electron microscopy and other methods will be carried out on devices in order to correlate spectroscopy and structure. The position will include supervision of diploma students and PhD students. The candidate will help to secure research funding. The position may include teaching activities on undergraduate, graduate and PhD level.

Qualification requirements Appointment to a post-doctoral position requires that the applicant has a PhD, or an international degree deemed equivalent to a PhD, within the subject of the position, completed no more than three years before the last date for applications. Under special circumstances, the doctoral degree can have been completed earlier.

Assessment criteria and other qualifications This is a career development position primarily focused on research. The position is intended as an initial step in a career, and the assessment of the applicants will primarily be based on their research qualifications and potential as researchers. Particular emphasis will be placed on research skills within the subject.

The research is to a large extent interdisciplinary, and a broad competence profile and experiences from relevant areas of physics, chemistry, materials science and nanoscience are of special value. Consideration will also be given to good collaborative skills, drive and independence, how the applicant's experience and skills complement and strengthen ongoing research within the department, and how they stand to contribute to its future development.

Instructions on how to apply Applications shall be written in English. Please draw up the application in accordance with LTH's Academic qualifications portfolio - see link below. Upload the application as PDF-files in the recruitment system. Read more: http://www.lth.se/index.php?id=71223

If the application is not designed in accordance with the academic qualifications portfolio it shall be compiled into a PDF containing a covering letter in which applicants describe themselves and their particular research interests, including contributions to the described research project (maximum 2 pages). Applications must also include a CV, publication list, a copy of the applicant's doctoral thesis, contact details of at least two references, copies of grade certificates, and any other documents that the applicant wishes to refer to. Applicants are also required to answer the job specific questions in the final step of the application process.
