Researcher in Ion Beam-based Physics at Uppsala University

Uppsala University is delighted to offer a postdoctoral associate position in astronomy. Citizens of any country are eligible to apply before the deadline: January 07, 2020.

The Department of Physics and Astronomy at Uppsala University invites applications for a researcher position in ion beam based physics, to work within in-situ characterization of ultra-thin film systems of relevance for electronics and sensors, in particular, silicides, germanides and transition metal oxides. Changes in properties of relevance for the performance of the materials such as crystallinity and chemical composition are to be studied while the system is exposed to various different conditions such as thermal annealing. The researcher is expected to work mainly with the recently constructed implanter-based TOF-MEIS (Time-of-Flight Medium Energy Ion Scattering) system, featuring a novel non-destructive approach for depth profiling ultra-thin films. The project will focus on deposition of ultra-thin films, thin film characterization, method development in ion-scattering and development of data analysis methods but also has aspects within fundamental ion-solid interaction.

Requirements: The holder of a position as researcher must have a PhD degree in Physics or equivalent. Well-documented research experience using ion beams for material research, fundamental studies or materials modifications is expected. A good fundamental understanding of ion-solid interaction is required. Experience in thin film technology is considered to be of advantage.
