Lund University was founded in 1666 and is repeatedly ranked among the world's top 100 universities. The University has around 46 000 students and more than 8 000 staff based in Lund, Helsingborg and Malmö. We are united in our efforts to understand, explain and improve our world and the human condition.
Lund University welcomes applicants with diverse backgrounds and experiences. We regard gender equality and diversity as a strength and an asset.
Description of the workplace
This position will be part of the Inorganic Nanomaterials research group (www. kilu.lu.se/cas/research/nanomaterials/) within the Centre for Analysis and Synthesis (CAS) at the Department of Chemistry. We are a highly international unit and strive to maintain gender balance. Research at CAS focuses on inorganic, organic, polymer and materials synthesis, as well as advanced analysis and characterization techniques, with applications across such topics as photovoltaics, energy storage and catalysis.
The aim of this project is to study the fundamental crystal growth processes of functional inorganic materials at the nanoscale using in-situ transmission electron microscopy (TEM). The project will utilize a customized TEM integrated with a chemical vapor deposition (CVD) system equipped with gas sources suitable for growth of semiconductor materials. The focus will be on designing novel functional nanostructures with particular emphasis on sustainability and novel properties, for instance in catalysis or magnetism. Real-time analysis will be used to understand the processes governing nucleation, selection of crystal structure, and growth of heterostructure materials.
The main duties of doctoral students are to devote themselves to their research studies which includes participating in research projects and third cycle courses. The work duties will also include teaching and other departmental duties (no more than 20%).
This PhD student will conduct experiments in the in-situ TEM involving the development of novel crystalline materials, and understanding how they form. You will be responsible for planning and conducting their own experiments, as well as analyzing and interpreting the data.
A person meets the general admission requirements for third-cycle courses and study programmes if the applicant:
A person meets the specific admission requirements for third cycle studies in Inorganic Chemistry if the applicant has:
Selection for third-cycle studies is based on the student's potential to profit from such studies. The assessment of potential is made primarily on the basis of academic results from the first and second cycle. Special attention is paid to the following:
Other assessment criteria:
Consideration will also be given to good collaborative skills, drive and independence, and how the applicant, through experience and skills, is deemed to have the abilities necessary for successfully completing the third cycle programme.
We offer Lund University is a public authority which means that employees get particular benefits, generous annual leave and an advantageous occupational pension scheme.

Terms of employment Only those admitted to third cycle studies may be appointed to a doctoral studentship. Third cycle studies at LTH consist of full-time studies for 4 years. A doctoral studentship is a fixed-term employment of a maximum of 5 years (including 20% departmental duties). Doctoral studentships are regulated in the Higher Education Ordinance (1993:100), chapter 5, 1-7 §§.
