PhD student in physical chemistry with a fokus on optical spectroscopy

Diary id: PAR 2018/940
Employment level: Time limited employment (temporary)
Location: Department of Chemistry and Molecular Biology
Apply by: 2018-09-12

Research and graduate education at the department of chemistry and molecular biology comprises a wide scientific field from the atomic and molecular levels all the way through cells to intact organisms. Much of the phenomena studied here impact on our natural environment and living systems. We participate in undergraduate programs in chemistry, molecular biology, medicinal chemistry, biology, marine sciences, and pharmacy.

A third cycle education at our department will lead to a Ph.D. in Natural sciences, or Natural sciences with a specialisation in Chemistry. Ph.D. studies comprises four years at the post graduate level. The time period can be extended to 5 years in total through teaching and/or other departmental duties.

Information about the research group:

In the molecular materials research group we construct molecules or molecular based systems that perform highly specialized functions to be used within material sciences. The competence of the group involves both the synthesis of complex molecules and the photophysical/electrical characterization of these molecular based systems. Most often we are working with organic molecules and even though each molecule is able to perform a task on its own, our aim is not to use the single molecules, but ensembles of molecules to create materials for the future. For more information see www.molecularmaterials.se.
