Postdoctoral position in Structuring of fibrilar systems....

Information about the research
The postdoctoral postion will be placed at the Department of Physics, in the Division of Condensed Matter Physics. The research at the division is directed towards a fundamental molecular level understanding of structure and dynamics of different disordered materials in relation to macroscopic function. The division has different activities towards large scale facility research. The research group focus on the development of advanced X-ray imaging and scattering techniques and their application towards materials with hierarchical structure. In particular we work on small- angle X-ray scattering (SAXS) imaging in 2D as well as in 3D in collaboration with different synchrotron beamlines in Europe and towards their implementation at the new synchrotron light source in Sweden, MAX IV.

We are looking for a Postdoc candidate to work on a project focused on SAXS measurements to study structuring of fibrilar systems under flow, such as 3D printing, electro spinning and fibre spinning. The project is in the framework of the feasibility study on the ForMAX beamline at MAX IV , which will be a combined SAXS and imaging beamline, in particular aimed at the Swedish forest industry. Controlled alignment of for example cellulose nanofibrils is of high interest, since their mechanical properties are highly anisotropic. The work will involve development of suitable sample environments aiming towards in-situ studies. 

Major responsibilities
Your major responsibility as postdoc is to perform research within the research project outlined above. The position also includes supervising master's and/or PhD students to a certain extent. Another important aspect involves collaboration within academia and with society at large. The position is meritorious for future research duties within academia as well as industry/the public sector.

Position summary
Full-time temporary employment. The position is limited to a maximum of two years (1+1).

Qualifications
The applicant should have a PhD in physics, material science, chemistry or other related areas. Previous experience in SAXS is required and experience in microfluidics is an advantage.

You are expected to demonstrate good potential within research.

The position requires sound verbal and written communication skills in English.

Chalmers continuously strives to be an attractive employer. Equality and diversity are substantial foundations in all activities at Chalmers.

Application procedure
The application should be marked with Ref 20170582 and written in English. The application should be sent electronically and be attached as pdf-files, as below:

CV: (Please name the document as: CV, Surname, Ref. number) including:
• CV, include complete list of publications
• Two references that we can contact.

Personal letter: (Please name the document as: Personal letter, Family name, Ref. number) including:
• 1-3 pages where you introduce yourself and present your qualifications.
• Previous research fields and main research results.
• Future goals and research focus. Are there any specific projects and research issues you are primarily interested in?

Other documents:
• Attested copies of completed education, grades and other certificates.
