The group studies interaction of swift ions and photons with matter in solid and gaseous forsm at an atomic and molecular level. The research deals, besides basic physics, with applications using different mass-spectrometric analytical techniques. These methods permit to determine concentrations and depth profiles of atoms and molecules in a material with very high accuracy for samples from biological, environmental and technological contexts. A 5MV tandem accelerator and a 350 kV high current ion implanter form the experimental platform.

The PhD student will work on an interdisciplinary project with a focus on applied as well as basic material science. The work will be conducted at the tandem accelerator facility and the ion implanter at the Ångström Laboratory and will mainly be of an experimental character. Ion beam analytical methods and more specifically MEIS (med energy ion scattering) that the group has developed in recent years will be the main focus for the PhD project. In especial, this will include further development of the instrumentation, sample handling and interpretation of obtained results. Applications in electronics, solar cells and thin solid film science in general, in close collaboration with other research groups will be a part of the project.

The successful candidate should have a master of science in engineering physics/physics or equivalent. Experiences in interdisciplinary materials science and modeling will be considered advantageous. Good skills in oral and written English are required.

The PhD position is for four years, extendable to a maximum of five years including departmental duties at a level of at most 20% (typically teaching). Further information:

In order to be eligible for this position, the candidate has to be admitted or in the process of being admitted as a PhD student at Uppsala university.

Uppsala University is striving to achieve a more even gender balance and women are especially encouraged to apply.

Applications should include a brief description of research interest and past experience, a CV, copies of exams, degrees and grades, a copy of your Master thesis (or a draft thereof) and other relevant documents. The candidates are encouraged to provide letter(s) of recommendation and contact information to reference persons.
