Researcher in Ion Beam-Based Physics

Published: 2021-03-25

Uppsala University is a comprehensive research-intensive university with a strong international standing. Our ultimate goal is to conduct education and research of the highest quality and relevance to make a long-term difference in society. Our most important assets are all the individuals whose curiosity and dedication make Uppsala University one of Sweden’s most exciting workplaces. Uppsala University has over 45,000 students, more than 7,000 employees and a turnover of around SEK 7 billion.

The Department of Physics and Astronomy at Uppsala University invites applications for a researcher position in ion beam-based physics, to work within energy-related research questions in two specific projects in the ion physics group within the division of applied nuclear physics: On the one hand, the candidate is expected to work within the research group’s activities within photochromic and photocatalytic thin film systems. Furthermore, the candidate is expected to contribute to research efforts in studying plasma-wall interaction as relevant for future fusion devices. In both projects, ion-beam analysis, also using in-situ approaches will be the main working tool. Furthermore, materials modification using ion beams, as well as more fundamental studies on ion-solid interaction will be performed.

The successful applicant will also have access to the other ion beam facilities of the group, in particular the 5 MV tandem accelerator, the ion implantation facilities as well as a system for low-energy ion scattering and is expected to also participate in interdisciplinary materials research investigations also using MeV ion beams.

(Co-)supervision of student projects can be part of the working duties.

Prerequisites: The holder of a position as researcher must have a PhD degree 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.

The application should contain a letter describing the applicant and her/his qualifications and research interests. It should contain a CV, copies of relevant degrees, contact information for at least two reference persons, and a full publication list. Personal circumstances that may be of relevance in the evaluation, for example periods of parental leave, should be mentioned in the CV.

Starting date: 01-09-2021 or as otherwise agreed.

Type of employment: Temporary position ending 31-08-2023.

Scope of employment: 100%.
