Chemistry and Chemical Engineering is the largest department at Chalmers with research ranging from the most fundamental level to a level close to application in industry and society. The research activities reach from DNA-research and biomaterials to high temperature corrosion, catalysis and recycling. The Department is also heavily committed to teaching at the undergraduate, graduate, as well as postgraduate level in these areas.

Health, natural resources, sustainable energy and materials are some of our lead words and our vision is "Through curiosity and knowledge towards a sustainable world". We have approximately 300 employees, divided into four research and one administrative division. We are situated at campus Johanneberg in the middle of Gothenburg. Information about the project

In this PhD student position, you will join the activities at the Division of Applied Chemistry at the Department of Chemistry and Chemical Engineering. Sustainable development is a central matter at the division where research is mainly directed with an applied focus and mostly concerns the development of new materials. In this specific project, so-called microcapsules are at focus. Microcapsules have shown an interesting application potential in the search for new fiber-based materials with antimicrobial properties. The ambition of this project is to develop biobased microcapsules to be adapted in cellulosic fibres from where triggered and sustained release of antimicrobial agents can be accomplished. A central objective is to characterize and map the fundamental aspects that are decisive in the formulation of microcapsules as well as their release of actives.

Major responsibilities

During your education as a PhD student, you will communicate the results from your project by publishing articles in relevant peer-reviewed international scientific journals and by participating to national and international meetings and conferences. Within the daily work as a PhD student, our ambition is that you find variation and interact with not only other PhD students and postdoctoral fellows, but also undergraduate students, senior researchers and professors. This PhD project will be carried out in collaboration with the research institute RISE IVF.

Your major responsibilities are to pursue your own doctoral studies. You are expected to develop your own scientific concepts and communicate the results of your research verbally and in writing, both in Swedish and in English. The position generally also includes teaching on Chalmers’ undergraduate level or performing other duties corresponding to 20 per cent of working hours.

Full-time temporary employment.The position is limited to a maximum of five years.

Qualifications

The most important qualification is your desire to devotedly conduct chemistry research. You have a Master's degree in chemistry, chemical engineering, biotechnology, or equivalent. You appreciate to work experimentally and also with theoretical tools from the perspective of physical chemistry.

The position requires sound verbal and written communication skills in Swedish and English. If Swedish is not your native language, you should be able to teach in Swedish after two years. Chalmers offers Swedish courses.
