Postdoctoral Fellow in Ultrafast Coherent Dynamics in Quantum Materials

The focus of the proposed research is to investigate coherent phonon and spin dynamics in quantum materials driven by strong terahertz radiation. The successful candidate will join the ongoing experimental activities and is expected to lead the investigations using the table-top terahertz systems operating at the Department of Physics. Ref. No. SU FV-3722-18, closing date: 27 November 2018.

Postdoctoral fellow in theoretical modeling of x-ray spectroscopy

The research group XSoLaS at the Department of Physics, Stockholm University have a postdoctoral fellow opening for an outstanding individual to conduct theoretical studies, development and modeling to support and guide a world-leading experimental effort in the area of fundamental aspects of heterogeneous catalysis with a focus on CO 2 reduction to abate climate change and promote a sustainable energy future. Ref. No. SU-0160-18, closing date 2018-11-30.

Postdoctoral Fellows in Physics of Axions and Anyons (2)

The research group of Prof. Frank Wilczek at the Department of Physics at Stockholm University in collaboration with Nordita invites applications for two postdoctoral position in theoretical physics connected to axions or anyons. The scope of the research includes condensed matter analogues of axions as well the particle physics around axions and their cosmological implications, and the use of anyons for topological quantum computing. Ref. No. SU FV-3354-18, closing date: 1 December 2018.

Postdoctoral Fellow in Fundamental Theory

The project “Holographic spacetimes from simple quantum theories” led by Professor Bo Sundborg aims to use AdS/CFT, or more generally gauge/gravity duality, to derive quantum physics of geometry from quantum field theory. Ref. No. SU FV-3825-18, closing date: 15 December 2018.

Postdoctoral Fellow in Theoretical Chemical Physics

A postdoctorial position at the Department of Physics is immediately available in the area of theoretical modelling of photovoltaic materials and related simulations of X-ray spectra. Ref. No. SU FV-3661-18, closing date: 20 December 2018.

Postdoctoral Fellow in development of X-ray Photoelectron Spectroscopy towards High Pressures

The Department of Physics have a postdoctoral fellow opening for an outstanding individual to work with Dr. Peter Amann on the development of x-ray photoelectron spectroscopy (XPS) towards applications under realistic catalytic conditions. Ref. No. SU FV-3646-18, closing date: 28 December 2018.
