Post-doctor position in molecular and condensed matter physics with photon science
Uppsala University is an international research university focused on the development of science and education. Our most important assets are all the individuals who with their curiosity and their dedication make Uppsala University one of Sweden’s most exciting work places. Uppsala University has 40,000 students, 7,000 employees and a turnover of SEK 6,5 billion.
The Division of Molecular and Condensed Matter Physics within the Department of Physics and Astronomy is recognized for its world-class research on matter and processes at the atomic level using advanced spectroscopy in the extreme ultraviolet (XUV) and X-ray regimes. The division has a leading position in the study of atoms, molecules and condensed matter, both in exploratory investigations on light-matter interactions and in application-driven projects, in particular materials, surfaces and interfaces with applications in the areas of energy, environment and advanced technology. Our research themes include :
Studies of Molecules and Liquids
- Molecules – From atoms and molecules to clusters and biomolecules
- Liquids – from basics to environmental molecular science
Studies of Functional Materials
- Magnetism – Spintronics and dynamics
- Energy Materials – Conversion and storage
Development of X-ray Based Methodology
- Resonant Inelastic X-ray Scattering
- Ambient Conditions Photoelectron Spectroscopy
- Time-Resolved Photoelectron Spectroscopy with High Resolution and Sensitivity
Experiments are performed in the home lab as well as at modern synchrotron radiation and X-ray free-electron laser facilities

We now seek a post-doc that can take part in any of our research activities. The successful candidate will work with researchers within the division, both in collaborative projects as well as exploring her/his own research ideas.
The applicant is expected to have a PhD degree in Physics, which is not older than three years, or equivalent, with a good background in molecular and condensed matter physics with photon science.
The application should include a statement of research interest, CV, certificates of exams, degrees and grades, a link to the thesis, published articles or other relevant materials. Also, e-mail addresses of two reference persons should be included.
The Postdoc position is open for two years.
