The Faculty is organized into nine departments, gathered in the northern campus area. The Faculty has approximately 1500 students, 330 PhD students and 700 employees.

Design, synthesis and characterization of metal complexes based on among other things, N-heterocyclic ligands for applicatiuons in solar cells and artificial photosynthesis.

University degree corresponding to 120 hp kemi, of which 30 hp in organic chemistry. There will be emphasis on written and oral communication in English and experience from organic-inorganic chemical synthetic laboratory work (both practical and theoretical). It is desirable to have knowledge about organometallic chemistry (both practial and theoretical). Knowledge about photophysics, catalysis, photoelectrochemical cells for the production of electricity and and/or fuel, and/or N-heterocyclic carbenes and their metal complexes is meritorius.

Please attach to the application as an enclosure ONE .pdf-file containing: (1) cover letter. (2) academic CV. (3) Short summary och research accomplishment from e.g diploma works. (4) A research proposal based on photophysically/photochemically active iron N-heterocyclic carbene complexes. ( New Times roman, 12 pt). Items 1-3, 2 pages in total. Item 4, 1 page”.


Students with basic eligibility for third-cycle studies are those who- have completed a second-cycle degree- have completed courses of at least 240 credits, of which at least 60 credits are from second-cycle courses, or- have acquired largely equivalent knowledge in some other way, in Sweden or abroad.

The employment of doctoral students is regulated in the Swedish Code of Statues 1998: 80. Only those who are or have been admitted to PhD-studies may be appointed to doctoral studentships. When an appointment to a doctoral studentship is made, the ability of the student to benefit from PhD-studies shall primarily be taken into account. In addition to devoting themselves to their studies, those appointed to doctoral studentships may be required to work with educational tasks, research and administration, in accordance with specific regulations in the ordinance.
