Open positions

We will announce positions in the future, so keep your eyes open. You can also follow us on Twitter or LinkedIn, where we regularly update job postings.

  

PhD position in Organic Chemistry towards Green Methodology Development

Your research will be to develop key transformations on platform-molecules for applications towards, transparent, functional, and chemical recyclable polymeric materials. Your particular focus will be synthetic chemistry method development. Your PhD work will be crucial towards the development of new green molecules for applications in green material design, as well in the development of new synthetic concepts for applications in materials science, both within the GreenPolChem-group, and in the larger LOE and WWSC environment. The PhD position is associated with the Wallenberg Wood Science Center (WWSC), which is a joint research center including groups from KTH Royal Institute of Technology, Chalmers University of Technology, and Linköping University with base funding from the Knut and Alice Wallenberg Foundation.

PhD position in Polymer Chemistry towards Functional Materials

Your research will be to develop polymerization concepts towards, transparent, functional, and chemical recyclable polymeric materials. Your particular focus will be on polymer chemistry methodology development with emphasis on macromolecular design. Your PhD work will be crucial towards the development of new polymers for applications in chemically recyclable and functional materials, both within the GreenPolChem-group, and in the larger LOE and WWSC environment. The PhD position is associated with the Wallenberg Wood Science Center (WWSC), which is a joint research center including groups from KTH Royal Institute of Technology, Chalmers University of Technology, and Linköping University with base funding from the Knut and Alice Wallenberg Foundation.

PhD position in heterogeneous catalysis

We are now looking for a PhD student to join our group and WWSC. Your research in the Catalysis and Self-Assembly group will focus on developing fundamental principles for more active and selective heterogeneous catalysts. Heterogeneous catalysts play a critical role in driving the transition to a sustainable society by promoting energy efficiency, pollution reduction, resource conservation and renewable energy integration. In the Catalysis and Self-Assembly group at Linköping University, we develop fundamental concepts to make catalysts more active and selective. Your PhD work will be crucial to the broader development of new design principles for heterogeneous catalysts that are pursued in our group. This broader development will be done in a highly multidisciplinary team of chemists, physicists, material scientists, and mathematicians. Read more:

PhD position in nanomaterials self-assembly

We are now looking for a PhD student to join our group and WWSC. Your research in the Catalysis and Self-Assembly group, and WWSC, will focus on self-assembly of wood-based nanomaterials to make renewable functional materials. Self-assembly (spontaneous organization of small components into organized structures) to make new materials from wood has enormous potential. In the Catalysis and Self-Assembly group at Linköping University, we develop self-assembly strategies to make new materials from wood-based nanoscale building blocks. Using these materials, we then explore applications in areas ranging from printed electronics to thermal insulation. Read more:

PhD Student in Applied Physics for ERC project on Dynamic Organic Nanooptics and Metasurfaces

At LOE, you will be part of the Organic photonics and Nanooptics group (www.mpjonsson.com), headed by Prof. Magnus Jonsson. Recent interests of the group include dynamic conducting polymer nanooptics, structural coloration and cellulose-based optics. Examples of application-areas include radiative cooling, dynamically tuneable metasurfaces, and reflective displays in color. 

The PhD student will join our ERC project focusing on dynamic optical nanoantennas and metasurfaces based on redox-tunable organic materials. In brief, the research will include fabrication and studies of different nanostructured materials, with the aim to contribute both with fundamental understanding and practical applications such as dynamic metalenses or holograms. The detailed project will be designed together with the selected PhD student.

Postdoc in organic bioelectronics

We are seeking a highly motivated and skilled postdoctoral researcher to join our team focused on the development of implantable drug delivery systems for the next generation of cancer therapies. The bioSWITCH implant concept is based on a combination of “iontronic” electrophoretic drug delivery and click-to-release chemistry for targeted, programmable, and precise dosage of potent chemotherapeutics. This postdoc position is focused specifically on the fabrication, characterization, optimization, and implementation of iontronic drug delivery devices – in a variety of geometries and experimental setups, including biological experiments with our bioSWITCH collaborators in Austria (Graz and Vienna). These tasks will include experimental design and automation, as well as integration with our custom hardware and software.

The successful candidate will have strong problem-solving skills, be able to work effectively in a multi-disciplinary and international team and have excellent communication abilities. This is an exciting opportunity to work at the interface between chemistry, biology, and electronics in the highly collaborative and supportive Laboratory of Organic Electronics.
