PhD student in Theoretical Statistical Physics

A PhD opening is available for a well-qualified individual to work with Prof. John Wettlaufer in the area of theoretical statistical physics of non-equilibrium systems. The focus is to advance understanding of the underlying processes responsible for stochastic resonance phenomena beyond the adiabatic limit. Ref. No. SU FV-2845-18, closing date: 2 October 2018.

PhD student in Experimental Particle Physics Instrumentation at ATLAS

The instrumentation physics group at Stockholm University invites applicants for a PhD position to work on the ATLAS experiment at the Large Hadron collider (LHC) at CERN. The main task for the applicant will be to participate in upgrading the ATLAS hadronic calorimeter systems for high-luminosity data taking at LHC. Ref. No. SU FV-2844-18, closing date: 2 October 2018.

PhD student in Experimental Astroparticle Physics

The neutrino astroparticle group at Stockholm University invites applications for a fully-funded PhD student position. Astroparticle physics is the discipline which studies the role of elementary particles in astrophysical processes in order to better understand such processes or the properties of the particles themselves. It is expected that the thesis work will be carried out, at least in part, within the international IceCube collaboration. Ref. No. SU FV-2842-18, closing date: 2 October 2018.

PhD student in Medical Radiation Physics (A)

Over the last years, the risk of a nuclear emergency has markedly increased, not only because of possible accidents in nuclear facilities but particularly as a result of an enhanced threat of terrorist attacks and increased political tensions between countries with nuclear weapons. According to the IAEA, a quick and reliable dose assessment is an essential part of radiation emergency management. Hence, it is important to develop dosimetric solutions for fast on-field application in case of a large nuclear emergency. The aim of the project is to carry out research aiming at improving dosimetric preparedness and competence in Sweden to cope with a large nuclear emergency. Ref. No. SU FV-2843-18, closing date: 2 October 2018.

PhD student in Medical Radiation Physics (B)

Cancer therapy using accelerated ions may deliver a more favourable dose distribution than conventional radiation therapy. Proton and heavier ions may reduce the risk of complications, but also enables dose escalation for improved tumour control. In spite of the rapid growing number of facilities, the full potential of particle therapy is yet to be researched. This PhD project foresees to scrutinize how the linear energy transfer (LET) of the ions can be used for further optimization of the treatment modality. Ref. No. SU FV-2846-18, closing date: 2 October 2018.

PhD student in Experimental Quantum Photonics

We seek for a talented and independent graduate student who wishes to develop her/his scientific career in a friendly and stimulating environment. This doctoral degree project will be carried out in the quantum photonics group led by Ana Predojevic. The successful candidate should have interest in quantum technologies, specifically quantum information and communication. Ref. No. SU FV-2841-18, closing date: 2 October 2018.

PhD student in Experimental Studies at DESIREE of Mutual Neutralisation Reactions

We are inviting applications for a PhD student in experimental studies at DESIREE of mutual neutralisation reactions relevant to planetary atmospheres. At DESIREE, a new and unique experimental facility located at Stockholm University, cutting-edge techniques are now available allowing studies of quantum-state resolved reactions with atomic and small molecular ions, and reactions with internally cold complex molecular ions. We will control internal ion excitation energies and collision energies from the meV to the keV range to mimic reactions in planetary atmospheres, shock waves, and combustion plasmas. Ref. No. SU FV-2952-18, closing date: 2 October 2018.

PhD student in Theoretical Work in Cosmology and Astroparticle Physics

The dark matter and dark energy constitute 95 % of the content of the Universe, yet their nature is as yet unidentified. In this project, the student will work on these problems. Regarding the dark matter, the student will work to propose novel detection ideas, and will also work to understand theoretical interpretation of existing experiments. Ref. No. SU FV-3008-18, closing date: 2 October 2018.

Postdoctoral Fellow in Theoretical Modeling of Electrocatalytic Hydrogen Generation

The Department of Physics have an immediate opening for a postdoctoral position for which we invite applications from outstanding individuals. The specific project aims to conduct theoretical studies, development and modeling to support and guide the experimental effort in the area of electrocatalysis with focus on hydrogen evolution from glycerol and sugar acids. The theoretical modeling will be based on computational screening of electrode materials using state-of-the-art scaling relations and electronic structure calculations. Ref. No. SU FV-2696-18, closing date: 15 October 2018.
